When is it the best time to sell your home? Well, according to Zillow, the best time to sell your home is in the Spring. Around this time, homes are usually higher in price and the time your home is on the market is fairly minimal – in comparative to other seasons. In the Spring, often times, your home has more curb appeal because you can plant some flowers, mow the lawn, and water the grass to clean up the property to make it look nice.
According to this graph from the National Association Of Realtors, home prices peaked during the warmer months. When is the best day to list a home? Zillow reports that the best day is Saturday. Consequently, Saturday and Sunday are also the best days to hold an Open House.
People start looking to buy in the Spring because they don’t want to disrupt their children’s school year. Since it takes 30-60 days to close on a home, children can finish out the current school year and start the summer in their new home! On the flip-side, selling your home during the spring could work against you if your neighborhood is saturated with competition.This is why curb appeal and distinguishing features are important to your home.
