“What is the best time of the year to sell my home?” is a common question among sellers.  Common sense would tell you that spring and summer would be the best time to put your home on the market due to high buyer traffic.  However, in addition to having more buyers available, there are also more homes for sale.  Therefore, sellers face greater competition which holds prices in check.

Those who consider putting their home on the market during the “off season,” will benefit from lower inventory as buyers have fewer choices.  Having fewer choices prevents buyers from being too picky.  In addition, a great home is really going to stand out and show well when choices are limited.

The best time to sell a home is when the timing is right for you as a seller.  There are pros and cons to listing during the peak season and too many variables to measure to come up with a definitive answer for everyone.  Since there is no “one size fits all” for everyone, do whats best for you and you won’t go wrong.
