One question we get most often is, “When is the best time to sell our home?” Surprisingly, our answer is always, “Whenever you want to!” It might sound crazy, but it’s true. Many people believe listing a home in the Spring and Summer is the only way to go, but our research and experience supports the idea that people are buying homes year round! One benefit of listing your home in the fall and winter is less competition!
Spring was once a prime selling season because homebuyers were primarily made up of families who would look during the summer and plan to move in time for their children to start school. However, this logic no longer applies to the majority of buyers.
It’s true that there are typically more properties for sale during the spring, so you can expect a lot of activity during this time, but it is not necessarily the best time to sell.
In recent years, we have seen November-January to be a very good time to sell. It truly is a supply and demand issue, so when the right home goes on the market, serious buyers will respond!
