Many people wait for April or May because they think it’s the best time to sell their house. The truth is, it really isn’t.
A lot of times, people wait until March, April, or May to put their homes on the market because they think it is the absolute best time to sell. The truth is that we don’t have a lot of seasonality here.
While it’s true that those months are the busiest time of year to sell, it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the best time. While there are many more buyers on the market, there are many more sellers as well. It’s actually better to be on the market earlier in the year than the peak time of late spring.
When people wait until late spring to list their home because they are under the impression it’s the best time, that gives you the opportunity to list your home earlier and sell without a whole lot of competition. Since we’re not in an overly cold climate like Minnesota or Delaware, you don’t have to worry about hitting the market right when spring hits.
You can get a headstart on the market now. If you’re thinking about selling this spring, you want to get your home on the market as quickly as you can and as soon as you’re ready.
Things don’t have to be absolutely perfect in terms of staging. When you don’t have much competition like there is right now, the key is urgency. You want to get ahead of that competition and make them set their price based on your sale, not the other way around.
