Best Time to Sell

Published on April 3rd, 2015

When is the best time to list your home?

When thinking about selling your home, the same question often reappears: When is the best time to put your house on the market? Well… We may have found the answer for you. The best time is NOW.

If you are thinking about selling your home, March Madness may not be the only madness in your life right now. According to Zillow Talk, Mid-March to mid-April is the best time period to put that “for sale” on display.

To offer a clearer picture, the ideal time to sell varies from one place to the next. The best time to list greatly depends on what part of the country you’re selling in. If you live in a warmer climate, the time to list is definitely now. If you live in the northeastern part of the United States, waiting until late April is your best bet. Places with harsh winters (like Boston) need to wait a little longer for warmer temps to roll in.

Why are these times so important to list your house? Well, according to Zillow, it’s when your home will sell faster and for more money. Homes selling between mid-March and mid-April often sell 15 percent faster and for 2 percent more than the average listing. Depending on which market you live in, that could be a lot of extra cash in your wallet!

If you think of selling your home as a competition with all the houses on the market, then you want to be ahead of the game and make sure you get the most out of your investment. Agent and lender contacts build early in March and April, so serious buyers are out on the prowl this time of year.
