With buyers clutching tax refund checks and venturing out into nice weather to visit open houses, spring used to be the agreed-upon best time to sell a home.
Place the emphasis on "used to."
While realtors agree some of the season's ideal factors are still in play, the cost of waiting until next year to sell may outweigh those benefits.
Home markets are turning around as the economy rebounds, and Bowling Green is no exception. Buyers are slowly but surely shedding the nerves of purchasing property from underneath the shadow of recession.
"People didn't stop having kids, they didn't stop needing larger houses, they didn't stop wanting different houses," said Andy Newlove of Newlove Realty. "That pent-up demand is a huge factor."

Falling temperatures and shorter days don't mean you can retire from lawn care for the year.
In fact, the fall season is a critical time to nourish lawns and care for plants so they can survive winter and emerge even more vibrant when next spring arrives.
Before storing the lawn and garden supplies, consider these fall lawn tips that keep the yard looking great year-round:

• Fertilize
Your lawn may not look like it's doing much above ground during cool months, but below ground root systems continue to grow.
That's why most lawn care professionals recommend fertilizing once or twice in the fall - grass will store and use the extra boost of nutrients throughout winter. Fertilizers high in nitrogen are ideal for fall feedings.

WASHINGTON - Builder confidence in the 55+ housing market for single-family homes showed strong continued improvement in the second quarter of 2013 compared to the same period a year ago, according to the National Association of Home Builders' latest 55+ Housing Market Index released Aug. 8. The index increased 24 points to a level of 53, which is the highest second-quarter number since the index started in 2008 and the seventh consecutive quarter of year over year improvements.
"Builders and developers for the 55-plus housing sector are feeling optimistic as they are seeing more consumers return to the marketplace," said Robert Karen, chairman of NAHB's 50+ Housing Council and managing member of the Symphony Development Group. "With existing home prices rising, consumers are able to sell their current homes and make the move toward either purchasing a home or renting an apartment that is designed to more specifically suit their lifestyle."
