Is There a “Best Season” to Sell Land and Lots?

As the Arizona real estate market heats up, it seems as though everyone is scrambling to find the home or land to buy for both the short and long term investments. Where some see the benefits of discovering good land and making it great in this current market, others see a fantastic opportunity to set down roots in Southern Arizona and find the land that they will build their dream house on.

Whatever the goal is for purchasing a land in Arizona, from horse ranching to developing the next hot community, there is one real estate trend that sellers can count on to appear in the land and lot industry too: the seasons can make a big difference to your sale.

For those unacquainted with Arizona, it may seem like Arizona only has one season to worry about – summer. While our summers can be a bit extended here, we do have a winter, albeit a mild one, an autumn, and what is probably one of the most glorious springs to be found anywhere in the country.

As the seasons change, so to does the land market here in Southern Arizona, and with it goes the best markets for buyers and sellers. As the housing market is kicking into high gear (Tucson was recently placed on the Top 10 list of most popular cities to live in 2017), it is promoting home buyers and investors to dive head-first into the market, making a normally tepid summer market an incredibly hot one.

With investors and buyers grabbing up great opportunities in Tucson and Southern Arizona this summer, many are finding that this is indeed a great place to live. When the current home availability does not meet their needs, wants, or expectations, however, they turn to land specialists like myself to help them realize their home or investment dreams, and that is where sellers come in.

While it is true that buyers search for land year-round online when they come to a new city or town to take a look at the available listings. Their comfort level can make a difference in deciding to purchase, and during our summer heat, the minor discomfort from the weather can make a big impact on their decision.

The cool, comfortable temperatures of the fall and winter have consistently driven up sales in Southern Arizona, and that trend is likely to be consistent year after year. Moving into the fall and winter seasons, landholders interested in selling their land may want to get ready to take advantage of the incoming cooler weather that can bring in more buyers.

Sellers can take advantage of the seasonal beauty of the desert landscape in the fall and winter months and buyers are bound to fall in love with Southern Arizona when they can feel comfortable outdoors and experience the land or lot first-hand without breaking a sweat.

If you are a landowner who needs a bit more time to sell, the spring season can pack a punch for sellers too. The spring market is traditionally a home seller’s market, but the land market, especially in places like Tucson, can also be a vibrant one. As the cactus flowers bloom and the palo verde trees burst with gorgeous yellow flowers, the desert landscape is a feast for the eyes for buyers.

Selling vacant land in the summertime may seem like an uphill battle, but in a great market, buyers are looking to find the property that meets their needs, regardless of the weather. While some seasons are certainly preferable for to make the most of a land sale, if the market is right, there is never really a bad season to find the perfect buyer for your property.
