There are a lot of factors that go into successfully selling your home. One major consideration is timing. When you decide to list, you might ask yourself what time of year is best to put your home on the market. Believe it or not, there is a right time!
In most parts of the country, the end of spring through the beginning of summer proves advantageous for attracting potential buyers. Families with children want to finish out the school year in their current district before starting anew, and summer can be a less busy time for coordinating closing details, packing and moving. Studies show the best time to list your house is the first week of April, signifying the start of spring (often called “busy season” in the world of real estate).
Other research has found that May is the most popular month to sell your house and has also shown to bring in the highest price. Overall, spring and summer bring increased competition amongst buyers in pursuit of their new home, which is always good news for sellers.
Another perk is that this time of year typically features the best weather for showcasing your lawn’s lush green grass, blooming flowers and full shady trees to increase your home’s curb appeal and enhance your listing photography to get buyers in the door!
