The Best Time to Sell Your Home?
The best time to sell your home is when you are ready to sell your home.

Peak Season   

The peak season can vary depending on the year and market, but the typical peak season is early spring and early fall. This is preferred because the weather is nice, but not too warm or cold and kids are getting out of school or just going back.

If you sell your home during the peak season you will have more competition but the chances of your home getting seen more often are higher. 

Your Best Time?

You are the only one that can decide when the best time to sell your home is. Everyone's selling situation is unique and that is how a Sales Professional can help you work through the steps to get your home sold.

Below is a quick list of some do's and don'ts hat you should be aware of.:

  • DO think about what would be ideal for you. Only you know your family's schedule.
  • DON'T base your decision to sell just on the season or what friends/family tell you.
  • DO prepare your home to sell.
  • DO consider what kind of market you are in, a buyer's market or a seller's market. A buyer's market is when there are more houses then buyer's and a seller's market is when there are more buyers than houses.
  • DON'T forget to think about the buyer, something attracted you to your home. Showcase that.
  • DO talk with your agent and find out his/her thoughts on selling your home. They have the expertise to help you make the right decision.

Ask your agent for a Comparitive Market Analysis, this will give you hard facts and figures to help with your decision. By using this data we can identify buying trends in your area and together you can figure out your choices and narrow your options to find the decision best for you.
