When is the best time to sell my home?

Thinking about selling one’s home is not an easy decision to make. Of course, sometimes, the homeowner really has no choice due to a signficant change in circumstances. Each homeowner’s situation is different. While some have to move as soon as possible, other homeowner’s don’t have to be in such a rush and have the flexibility to list their home when the market is at it’s best.

Across the United States, the best time for a homeowner to list their home is on a Saturday in the first half of May. This allows families with children still in school to arrange the move to take place during the summer months so the childrens’ education is not interrupted. Of course, the best time to list a home varies from state to state.

For example, the best time for a home to be listed in the Philadelphia area is on a Friday between May 1st and May 15th. However, in the New York City metropolitan area, the best time for a homeowner to put their house on the market is on a Saturday between April 16th and 30th. That being said, May 1st through 15th is largely the most beneficial time to list a home.
