I’m often asked ‘when is the best time to sell a home’?
Although the best time to sell depends on the particular circumstances of each homeowner, there are definite trends as to when homes come on the market.
Springtime is consistently the strongest season for new listings. The highest number of homes typically come on the market in May, followed by April and March. Summer months — June, July and August — are the next busiest. The months of January, February, September and October see comparable amounts of activity, but less than the spring and summer months. November and December are (not surprisingly) the slowest months for new listings.
What does this information mean for you as a potential seller? Inventory is still perilously low; the law of supply and demand is your best friend. Plan to go on the market when there is less competition. Listing your home in March is a good way to snag buyers before the springtime onslaught.
