Why it makes NO SENSE to wait until spring to sell your home!

Most homes go UNDER CONTRACT between February and April!  NOT later in the spring/summer!

The other listings that come out in the spring will represent increased competition to any seller. Do a greater number of homes actually come to the market during this season in comparison to the rest of the year? The National Association of Realtors (NAR) recently revealed the months during which most people listed their homes for sale in 2018. This graphic shows the results:

The three months in the second quarter of the year (represented in red) are consistently the most popular months for sellers to LIST their homes on the market. Last year, the number of homes available for sale in January was 1,520,000.

BUT, look at our LOCAL market.  MOST homes go UNDER CONTRACT between February and April! This means you need to list your home in February in order to get the BEST price with the LEAST amount of competition!

Bottom Line

If you are looking to sell this year, waiting until the spring to list your home means you will have the greatest competition amongst buyers. Beat the rush of housing inventory that will enter the market and list your home today!
