Many home owners wonder is there a right time to sell? In all reality there is a right time. Figuring out when that is can get your house sold sooner than most.
The right time is usually between end of Spring and the beginning of Summer. According to a study done by Zillow, homes listed mid-March and mid-April on average sold the fastest.
Typically, families with children tend to finish out the school year in their district before moving to a new one. Therefore, making Spring and early Summer a good time to sell. Longer days also leave more time to show the house during daylight. Weather around this time also makes a home more appealing. Blue lit skies make a pool look brighter and the colors surrounding the house livelier. For example, the flowers and green grass are fresh around this time of year.
With Spring and early Summer being the best time to sell, there is one specific high selling month. According to Zillow the first two weeks of May have the best results when trying to sell fast. Keep in mind although a great time to sell, Spring is also a competitive time. It is good to set a sell by date, and count backwards to get an idea of when to list to that will ultimately reach your goal.
Although there is no miraculous sell by date, putting your house on the market around Spring and early Summer increases the chances of selling fast.
