Proper timing is a major component of any real estate sale. So when is the best time of year to list your home?
Without fail, the ideal window for sellers is between February 1 and May 31. This range can obviously start a few days sooner or end a few days later, but this general time frame is when sellers will find the greatest opportunity to succeed.
So if you’re thinking of selling, start planning now. This will ensure that you’ll be ready to list by the time February rolls around.
As for when you shouldn’t list, there are a couple of specific times during which our market underperforms compared to the rest of the year. July, for whatever reason, is not a good month for sellers. Selling during Thanksgiving or Christmas may also prove difficult.
“If you’re thinking of selling, start planning now.”
Of course, the way you time your sale should also reflect what’s happening in the market at a given moment. You can find more information about our area market by visiting www.bradbret.com.
