Seller Resources

Times are changing and you’re thinking about moving the family into a new home. But before you start searching for your next dream home, you’ll need to figure out when you’re going to sell your existing home. The decision is a complex one, especially considering the unpredictable economic environment you’re living in. And while there’s no magic formula for determining the best time to sell a home, there are several factors you should consider.

The best season for selling

Since Spring is the most popular home-selling season, the market is ultra crowded with options at that time of year. This means more competition for buyers’ attention.
In winter, there are fewer homes for sale. The competition over low inventory can make winter an ideal time to sell your home. Winter also brings out serious buyers. They don’t want to take the chance of waiting until spring and losing out on the home of their choice. There may be less people at these open houses, but they are real buyers rather than those who are just curious or may be window shopping.

The best day for selling

According to research, Thursday is the best day of the week to list your home for sale. By listing your home for sale on a Thursday, you can make it available immediately for weekend showings. Come Saturday – the busiest day for real estate – your home will have only been on sale for two days, which is great for attracting full-price offers. In general, the shorter amount of time your home remains on the market, the higher the offer you’ll receive.
