Summer is often hailed as the prime season for buying or selling real estate, and for good reason. With longer daylight hours, warmer weather, and people settling into new routines post-school year, the summer months offer a perfect backdrop for real estate transactions. For buyers, the possible abundance of available listings means a wider selection to choose from, as sellers tend to put their homes on the market during this time to take advantage of the favorable weather and showcase their properties at their potential best. Additionally, buyers may find that competition is slightly less fierce compared to the spring rush, giving them more negotiating power and flexibility in their offers.

Sellers, on the other hand, can benefit from the increased demand and activity in the summer market. The vibrant atmosphere and favorable weather draw more prospective buyers out of hibernation, eager to explore new homes and neighborhoods. With homes often looking their best in the summer months, sellers can showcase outdoor spaces, landscaping, and curb appeal to their fullest potential, making a strong impression on potential buyers.

Overall, the summer season presents a golden opportunity for both buyers and sellers in the real estate market. Whether you're looking to find your dream home or sell your current property, the summer months offer favorable conditions, increased activity, and a vibrant market atmosphere conducive to successful transactions. With the right strategy and guidance from a trusted real estate professional, navigating the summer market can lead to a rewarding and satisfying experience for all parties involved.

Kelly Raulston

“Reliable and Ready” REALTOR® since 2016. I was born in Monroeville, Pennsylvania, but was raised in Texas since 1997. When I found out we were moving to Plano, Texas, I remember looking forward to riding a horse to school and a brand-new pair of cowboy boots! Growing up in Plano prepared me to be competitive, quick, and to have a strong work ethic. I graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas. Axe’em Jacks! That is where my love for East Texas began. The nature, warm smiles, football games, and community values can't be beat! I graduated summa cum laude with a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. I was a middle school math teacher in Tyler, Texas. I met my husband, Travis, in Sunday school, and we have been married since September 2016. I love being a REALTOR® in East Texas! Relationships are genuine, the area is beautiful, and the market is rockin’! I am an involved REALTOR® to better the community. Some of the organizations I am involved with are: The Professional Development Committee, Texas Real Estate Political Action Committee, and Tyler Educational Networking Group. Some awards I have won were “The Hustle Award” in 2016, and “Rookie of the Year” in 2017. When I am not working with my clients, I like to spend quality time with my friends and family doing the following: running, target practice, read and participate in book club, and playing with my dachshund Greta.
