The Best Week to List Your House for Sale is Coming Soon
Are you thinking about selling your house? If so, you may want to make it a priority to start the process soon. According to realtor.com®, the sweet spot for sellers is almost here.
In a recent study, experts analyzed housing market trends by looking at data from the past several years (excluding 2020, since it was an atypical year). When applied to the current market, research says the ideal week to list your home is April 10-16. Here’s what you can expect from that week...
You Should See More Buyer Activity
Based on what’s happened in previous years, expect higher buyer demand. This could result in increased competition among buyers and a bidding war over your house. That could set you up for a big win.
Your House Is Expected to Sell Quickly
If you work with a trusted real estate professional to price your property correctly, it should sell quickly. During the first two months of this year, homes in the tri-city area sold in just 19-22 days. In addition to heightened demand, rising mortgage rates increase chances buyers will hurry to make their purchase before rates climb higher.
Your House Will Be in the Spotlight
Since the beginning of the year, the number of homes available for sale at many price points has been equal to or near record lows. If you list when inventory is low, your house will be the center of attention for eager buyers craving options.
If you’re ready to move fast, you may want to shoot for April 10th-16th as your target goal. Even if you’re not ready to list your house within the next couple of weeks, rest assured this is still a hot seller’s market in most price ranges. You'll still be in the driver's seat if you list later in April.
