When is the best time of the year to sell a house?

When is the best time of the year to sell a house?

When is the best time to sell your house?  Great question!  Timing is everything in real estate, but the timing has to fit your needs!

Spring and summer are typically when more houses come on the market, prices rise, and the most buyers are looking for a home.  Sounds like a good time to sell, right?  Well, it may be, but not for everyone.  If you also have to buy a new house in the same area, you may find it easier to do so in the fall and winter.  While you may not get top dollar for your home then, you might also be able to buy your new house at a lower price point!  It really comes down to when you are personally prepared to move.  Evaluating the time frame, you have to move and clearly communicating that to your listing real estate agent is super important.


Planning is the key to success.  You should start working with an agent at least 6 months prior to selling your home if you can.  They can help you evaluate the cost and benefits to any repairs you are thinking of making, they can start showing you homes in the area you want to move to (or getting you in contact with a great agent if you are moving out of state), and they can do a competitive market analysis to help you price and sell your home in the time frame you need to stay in!


Selling your home can feel very high stakes, but if you plan ahead, it can be a much smoother process!  If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me via Facebook, email, or phone!
