When is a good time to list your home?
There are many reasons why a person needs to list their home and a common question is when is a good time to list? The answer for a lot of people is when you want to! Sure, there are times when statistically speaking it might be better to list. I tell folks that if they want to sell in the spring, January is the best time. That is when people with school-age children start to think about a new home and want to be in either before the year ends or during the summer before the school year starts.
It is a little slower in the summer (maybe not when inventory is low) when folks are away on vacation. It's also a little slower during the holidays when folks have other things on their minds other than house hunting. But there is always going to be a buyer who gets transferred to your area or a family who has for some reason a change in circumstances that calls for either a larger or smaller home. Truly, there isn't a bad time to list your home in a seller's market. There isn't a time a year when there aren't some buyers who actually need to buy a home.
If you are on the fence, I can help you decide when listing is right for you.
