What Time of Year Should I Sell My House?

What Time of Year Should I Sell My House?

“I’m trying to sell my house, but I don’t know when’s the best time.” 

Most homeowners ask their realtors what time of year they should list their house. Seasons can make a big difference in the time it takes to sell, especially if you need to sell your house as quickly as possible. When you’re ready to put your house on the market, remember that some seasons are better than others for selling, depending on where you live in the country. Your top real estate agent will know your market well enough to understand the peak period for quick home sales. He or she can easily help you determine the best time of year for your specific region’s real estate market.

Should I Sell My House in April? 

Spring is by far considered to be the best time to try selling. The hustle and bustle of the holidays and dismal weather months are behind most of the country in the spring. The peak travel time has not yet begun, so people are home. Hey, even your landscaping is cooperating – gardens are beautiful, flowers are blooming. The natural beauty of a home in spring is more appealing to buyers.

Summer Time!

We love summer, but few people have house buying on their priority list. This is one of the busiest times of year for travelling and holidays, so most potential buyers could be away from home. If your home is best suited for a family, summer is not a great time to get their attention. What with summer vacation, graduations, and other summer activities, families are usually not focused on home buying. It is possible to sell during the summer, but plan for it to take a bit longer to attract the attention of busy buyers.

Ah, Fall

Autumn is a very good time to put a home on the market, much like spring. No major holidays threaten to distract potential buyers. The weather is still pleasant, so landscaping still looks nice and buyers don’t mind being outside, house-hunting.

The Winter Freeze

Winter packs a double whammy! It is the hardest time of year to try to sell a house, mostly due to the poor weather conditions and the holidays. Finding a buyer in winter is pure luck, in most cases. Most professional realtors advise waiting until the first of the year, when more people are ready to make big changes in their lives.

Of course, some regions of the country are less impacted by seasonal market fluctuations. However, it’s critical that homeowners research and heed the market trends in their specific area. The best bet is to consult a local real estate professional who are able to advise on the factors that influence the best time to sell in your area. Make sure you know how property market trends are moving in your area so you are able to pinpoint the ideal time to get your property sold faster.
