The real estate spring starts in January. That's when my phone starts ringing off the hook to list people's homes. They list in the very beginning of the year in hopes of selling by the end of the summer. A majority of the homes are now listed so you shouldn't wait too much longer.
Just so you know websites likeTrulia and Realtor.com are not an up to date way of searching for homes. The really good homes are sold before they even get onto these websites. The best source for your search is the MLS. This is available on a lot of agent's websites but you have to register first to use their property search. On my website you can search the MLS for free. If you see any homes on my website that interest you let me know and I can show it to you at your convenience day or evening.
Let me know if you have any questions I'm happy to help!
