The long and frigid winter drove people to cozy up inside and not to brave the cold. With fewer people interested in venturing out and exploring, there were also fewer attending open houses and scoping out properties they might be interested in. The good news is, the harsh winter only helps to push people to take advantage of the first signs of warm weather and start getting out and about early in the spring. Jan is adept at preparing properties for open houses, and with five offices in Summit County advertising your listing, there is even more potential for your listing to be seen.

Spring is a great time to take advantage of the attractions in Summit County

With the new season comes a host of engaging activities that people can take advantage of in the agreeable weather. These perks of the area help to draw new investors to the location and show them all it has to offer. From scenic drives and fishing to museums and historical attractions, during the spring these activities attract visitors to the area.

Spring may have just sprung, but fall is never that far away

While you might have just begun to smell spring in the air, with the blink of an eye it will be fall again. With this said, most buyers would like to be settled in a new property by the time the weather starts to cool down again and fall obligations begin to arise.

School starts, the holiday season begins, and the shorter days drive buyers back inside for the colder months. People looking in early spring to purchase or sell a property can expect to have the negotiations settled before the leaves start to turn, ensuring new owners have ample time to settle into their property before the winter falls.

One satisfied client had this to say about their experience with Slifer, Smith & Frampton, “The first time we stayed at Mountain Thunder was for our nieces' wedding. She reserved a block of rooms and we and everyone in the family were very impressed with the look and location. A few years later when we started looking at condos for ourselves we thought Mountain Thunder was out of our range. However, when our agent showed us the rental income history we saw that we could do it.”

This client purchased the beautiful 50 Mountain Thunder Drive property with the assistance of Slifer, Smith & Frampton, and particularly the unbeatable expertise of Jan Leopold.
