Other than selling at the right price, the other major factor is selling at the right time. You may not always be able to choose when you sell. There are circumstances that may come up forcing you to sell right away. However, if you are able to hold off for the right month
or season, it’s definitely a benefit. Keep in mind that a lot of this is luck, but you can also strategize a bit.
The right time to sell your home can vary, but traditionally its in the spring. This time of year is typically when there is the largest number of buyers. It is warmer outside; so people don’t mind attending lots of open houses. You should also think about the summer coming up shortly thereafter. If potential homebuyers have children, the time of year is a major factor to keep in mind, because it can be easier to relocate when children are out of school.
You should also take the time to research the best time of year to sell and buy homes in your specific area. While the spring may not always be the best time to buy in your area, it could be a great time in another. Speak with your local real estate professional to get their advice on the best time of year to sell.
