When is the best time of year to put your home on the real estate market? It’s coming sooner than you think.
Just a few months ago, we talked about the best time of year to buy a home. We came to the conclusion that the months of November, December, and January were the ideal time. Today we’d like to talk about the best time of year to sell a home.
It should come as no surprise that the best time of year to sell your home is when the most buyers are out there in the marketplace. That tends to coincide with when the inventory starts building. Typically, we start seeing people putting their homes on the market in mid-to-late January.
"The late winter/early spring months are best."
The home sellers that list during that time tend to be on the beginning edges of the peak selling season. We usually see the peak numbers in March, April, and May for homes sold in January, February, and March. The spring selling peak ends up being more toward the late winter/early spring months than the late spring/early summer months that people typically think of as being the peak of the market.
If you are thinking of selling a home in 2018, we recommend that you start the process sooner rather than later. If you have any questions for us or need any assistance with the process, give us a call or send us an email. We look forward to hearing from you.
