Many believe spring is the best time to put their homes on the market because buyer demand traditionally increases at that time of year. So if every homeowner believes the same thing, then that’s when they’ll have the most competition. 

Housing supply traditionally shrinks at this time of year, so the choices buyers have will be limited. Check out the chart that was created using the months supply of listings from the National Association of Realtors.

As you can see, the ‘sweet spot’ to list your house for the most exposure naturally occurs in the late fall and winter months (November – January).  

Temperatures aren’t the only thing that heats up in the spring – so do listings! 

At this time of year, purchasers who are serious about buying a home will be in the marketplace. You and your family will not be bothered and inconvenienced by mere ‘lookers.’ The lookers are at the mall or online doing their holiday shopping  😊

If you’ve been debating whether or not to sell your house and are curious about market conditions in your area, reach out and we'll determine the best time to sell your home.
