When Is the Best Time to Sell My Home?

When Is the Best Time to Sell My Home?

Timing is important in the housing market to the moment when the interest rates are low and the buyer demand is high, which may seem ideal, but if everyone had the ability to see exactly when home values are at their highest peak, we’d all be rich. The decision to sell your home should be based on a variety of factors that are both financial and emotional. You should definitely pay attention to market conditions as part of your thought process—which will absolutely impact your home sale—always keep in mind that the choice to buy or sell a home is completely individual.

Generally, families like to move during the summer when there’s a break in the school calendar so they don’t have to pull their children from class, and so they are settled in before the new school year. In addition, it’s often easier to move in the warm spring and summer months than during winter chills and snows. Spring brings rain and flowers—and possibly extra green in the final sales price of your home.

Selling a home quickly may not only be contingent on a season. The geography of your home may be a contributing factor to when the home should be sold.

For all of those reasons, evaluate your location and weather before planning to present a new home to the real estate market

TIP: Have a Plan

Sometimes personal situations prevent selling a home during the ideal solution season. A Realtor can help you sell a home in any season. You’re more likely to get a better price for your home in a seller’s market when there are few listings and lots of buyers competing with each other for offers. The trouble is a seller’s market can happen in any season. It’s a question of staying informed.

A successful sale isn’t as easy as slapping up a “FOR SALE” sign and waiting for interested buyers to show up. If that’s your approach, it’s no wonder you’ll end up scratching your head asking yourself, “When will my house sell?”

Be aware of what’s going on in your local market. Keep an eye on your local real estate market. Your location, the kind of property you are selling and your asking price will drive demand. Do some research and find out how quickly other homes are selling and for how much. If houses in your area are selling like hotcakes, whether it’s winter, spring or fall, it’s the best time to sell.

So, when should I sell my house? The truth is the best time to sell your home is when the timing is right for you and your family. In most cases, homeowners need to move for work, meaning they don’t have the luxury of waiting for the opportune moment to list.

Whatever the case, to sell your home quickly, whether it’s the best time or not, is to price it well within market range, present it well with nicely staged home and curb appeal and market it successfully with the right tools and exposure.
