The Best Time to Sell Your Home

When is the best time to sell? Will your home be more valuable in six months, or a year? Of course, no one wants to leave money on the table. If you can sell your home for more, then you should. But deciding when to list your home to hit the market at its peak can involve a lot of guesswork.

When it comes to selling your home, avoid the guesswork. Many people will wait for the market to reach its peak and then watch it retreat before they ever decide to sell. You should plan to sell your home when you are ready to sell your home, not in three months when everyone says prices will be higher or when the season is right.

Do your research before selling and get an appraisal or a detailed CMA which will give you market data, comparable home sales in the area, per-square-foot prices, etc. This information will assist you in making a better informed decision.

Many market analysts predict that the market will remain healthy for some time and that prices will continue to rise slowly. But real estate is influenced by many other industries and timing the market can be a very risky decision.

Is your house ready to list and show? Are you prepared to do what’s necessary to sell at maximum price, which may include staging the interior and completing fix-ups and improvements?

If you are ready to price your property realistically based on the market analyses you’ve received from professionals – analyses that may include advice on timing – then you have a great shot at a successful sale.
