The Best Time to Sell My House?
People often ask "When is the greatest time to list home for sale?" My reply to that is "Whenever you are ready."
A lot of people try to analyze and predict a good time to list their house. The simple truth is, there really is no best time/worst time. Many people think it is best to list in the year when there is more activity and there are more buyers out looking but that's also what almost every other home sellers think so there are lots of other houses for those buyers to choose from. More competition to suit your needs house. Yes, good houses sell faster in the spring but so will the excellent house you are trying to buy. You could get multiple offers around the home you are selling then be rivaling other buyers for that house you want to purchase.

It's commonly thought that around Christmas isn't a good time to list. While it is true that sales activity drops off considerably in December there are still buyers looking, simply not as many. You would get less potential customers through your house, but any that did come it is possible to bet they are able to buy. And there are less houses for buyers to choose from. On a personal note, some years ago I was a ready and willing buyer right around The holidays are and I remember being annoyed there was nothing on the market when I was ready to buy.
Some people want to produce changes or improvements to their house such as painting, landscaping, flooring etc before they list. Doing might be found are generally a good idea to make your house more salable but once they are complete, get your house for sale! No matter the time of year it is.
Also, prices don't fluctuate that much based on seasonality. House prices generally don't drop in the winter as many people think. You are not will make a bunch more money by waiting before the spring.

People should base their decision on personal matters including, when the new job starts, retirement, when the kids finish school or financial problems etc. Or they visit a house they fall in love with. Those are real life reasons.
There are always ready sellers and buyers out there looking to make a alternation in their housing, so really, don't decide to move based on the market, make it based on when you're ready to move.
