When is the Best Time of Year to Sell Your Home?

List: Posted: 12/05/11

Determining when to sell your home can be a stressful process.  According to many real estate experts, the best time of year for home selling is during the late spring and early summer.

The warmer months of the year tend to be the culmination of home buyer interest.  In addition, children are usually out of school during early summer, which means that families can move without uprooting children from their schools.  Realtors claim that home selling during this period of the year usually results in better results, higher sales prices, and faster sales in general.  If you have a home, selling it now can be the best thing for you.

However, there are those who urge you to buck the conventional wisdom about home selling, particularly given the rough economic environment that still lingers.  These aspects point to the fact that home selling during the spring and summer months has recently stopped producing quite as many good results – largely due to decreased demand in general.

You need to watch for other factors to determine the best time of year for home selling.  For instance, a reduction in federal interest rates, the introduction of new tax incentives, and other factors can greatly increase the demand for homes outside of the traditional selling period.  Home selling during these times can have enormous benefits for you, and can result in a shorter wait time and more profit from your sale.
