What Season is Best for Selling Your Home?

What Season is Best for Selling Your Home

Which season is best for selling a home?

It’s not when prices are high, rates are low, or when your partner, your mom, your best friend, or the guy on YouTube says you should. The best time to sell is when it’s right for you. It’s when selling and moving are part of your journey to the next chapter in your life. That said, there are benefits to selling in each season, provided it's right for you:


We love to tell our spring sellers that homes sold in May often net higher seller premiums. That’s $$$ above the home’s market value. Plus, in the spring, curb appeal is best (sorry winter), and buyers are on the hunt.


Extended daylight hours make it easier for buyers to schedule viewings and attend open houses after work or on weekends, making summer a great time to list. Plus, families with children will often prefer a move in between school years.


The decline in seller premiums typically begins in the fall around September. By then, most families with school-aged kids have bought and settled into the new school year so foot traffic slows down. The upside for fall sellers? They can sell and buy to host the holidays in their new home!


With fewer homes on the market, our winter sellers get the chance to stand out. Plus, winter buyers are often relocating for work or personal reasons, making them more likely to make offers.

What season do you think is best? Let us know - and don’t hesitate to connect with us when you’re pondering selling, no matter the season!
