While many suggest that springtime is prime selling season, there are a variety of factors that play into the best time to sell a home.
Depending upon the number of homes on the market at any given time, the window for the quickest sale and the highest price can swing significantly. You may do better price-wise when there are fewer homes on the market.
In very hot housing markets, the time frame in which buyers are looking for a home can stretch long past just the spring market. By listing homes further away from the spring season, sellers may attract buyers who are more urgently motivated to purchase.
Pinpointing the best time is not an exact science. Most people make real estate decisions based on need. In many cases, the real estate climate plays a limited role in these decisions.
Homeowners have their reasons for selling and buyers have their own motivations. The best advice could come from your local Royal LePage REALTOR® who understands the many variables at play within your specific market.
