What Is the Best Time to Sell a House?

If you’re looking for a speedy sale, the end of spring through the beginning of summer is the best time to list.That is NOW! According to a study by Zillow, homes listed between mid-March and mid-April traditionally sold the fastest; however, a declining number of available homes on the market has now pushed back the window of opportunity back.

Still, spring and early summer remain your best bets. Families with children want to finish out the school year in their current district before starting anew. The longer days don’t hurt, either—more daylight means more opportunities to get people in the door.

This time of year typically features the best weather, meaning you’ll be able to showcase your lush green grass, beautiful flowers and other attractive landscaping. An in-ground pool looks a lot more inviting beneath a bright blue sky than it does surrounded by piles of dead leaves or mud puddles from a recent rainstorm.

The Best Month to Sell a House Is…

While late spring through early summer tends to be the best period to sell your home, there is a specific month that tends to garner the best results: May – specifically, the first two weeks of May. Houses sold during this time frame sell quicker (18.5 days on average) and often for a marginally higher asking price.
