WHAT IS THE BEST TIME TO SELL YOUR HOME?
When pondering the question “when is the best time of the year to sell my home?” the answer is actually quite simple. The best time to sell your home is whenever it’s right for your individual circumstances! Many areas are nearly virtually sold out, raising the sales activity intensity to extreme frenzy for each new listing. As we progress through fall and winter, unsold inventory levels will drop even further.
These conditions, along with strong buyer demand due to historically low interest rates, have created a multiple-offer, quick-response market as buyers quickly snap up homes once they go on the market. If selling makes sense for you, connect with your trusted broker associate to explore further.
