WHEN IS THE BEST TIME OF YEAR TO SELL MY HOME?
Q: Is there a house selling season?
A: The best time to sell your house is when you are absolutely ready.
A home on the market cannot be a work in progress; you’ll never get an opportunity to re-interest a buyer turned off by something avoidable. When the home is de-cluttered, clean, and show ready, you can welcome potential buyers with confidence.
People often think that Spring is the optimal time. Keep in mind that there will be more competition then. Buyers looking for a home in the winter months are usually pretty serious and need to make a decision – I’ve written offers on New Year’s Eve, and negotiated over Thanksgiving turkey for my Sellers, most often at ‘top dollar’ price for the neighborhood.
