The Best Time to Sell My home?

People often ask "When is the best time to list home for sale?" My reply to that is "Whenever you are ready."

A lot of people try to analyze and predict a good time to list their house. The truth is, there really is no best time/worst time. Some people think it is best to list in the spring when there is more activity and there are more buyers out looking but that is also what other home sellers also think so there are lots of other houses for anyone buyers to choose from. More competition for you personally house. Yes, good houses sell faster in the spring but so will the great house you are trying to buy. You could get multiple offers about the home you are selling then be rivaling other buyers for that house you want to purchase.

It's commonly thought that around Christmas is not an good time to list. While it's true that sales activity drops off considerably in December you can still find buyers looking, just not as many. You would get less potential customers through your house, but any that did come it is possible to bet they are ready to buy. And there are less houses for buyers to pick from. On a personal note, some years ago I was a ready buyer right around The holiday season and I remember being annoyed that there was nothing on the market when I was ready to buy.

Some people want to make changes or improvements to their house such as painting, landscaping, flooring etc before they list. Doing might be found are generally a good idea to create your house more salable however when they are complete, get your house for sale! Regardless of the time of year it is.

Also, prices don't fluctuate that much depending on seasonality. House prices generally do not drop in the winter because think. You are not making a bunch more money by waiting before spring.

People should base their decision on personal matters such as, when the new job starts, retirement, once the kids finish school or financial problems etc. Or they visit a house they fall in love with. Those are real life reasons.

There will always be ready sellers and buyers on the market looking to make a alternation in their housing, so really, don't come to a decision to move based on the real estate market, make it based on if you are ready to move.

Don't be the product, buy the product!
