I find if you enter on Monday night or Tuesday morning in MLS, the most agent eyes will see the listing as new because a majority of offices hold their sales meetings on Tuesday / Wednesday in our area.

If I have the luxury of selecting the time preferably a Thursday morning (pictures and staging completed the first of the week and marketing materials ready to go, approved and ready for the photographs from the photographer). Agents are scouring for new listings to show over the week-end. I prefer not to enter them in Fridays-Mondays (Don't feel they get the traction). In our low inventory market..just about any time is a good time!

I don't like Sundays and Mondays. But that being said, I've had success listing and selling properties quickly that were listed on days/times that you wouldn't expect a big response on quickly.

I discuss it with my clients, but given the choice, I like to post Thursdays ahead of the weekend, since that's when most buyers will be out with their agents Fri-Sun. I don't think theirs a bad day to post a listing, any day you have a new listing is a great day! 

Does anyone know if their are actual stats on this? I wonder if it's all in our heads or it really matters?

I just try to get it out there as fast as possible. Put one up a couple of days ago, and got a strong lead through Zillow within hours. My feeling is that I market to the world not just my local agents.

Sally K. & David L. Hanson just my opinion - and it may be different for different people. 

Tuesday is the best day to list - no showing till open house on Sunday.

And Sunday - the least desirable day.

In the spring and summer around Denver, most listings came out on Thursday, with showings starting on Friday or Saturday morning, which response times on Sunday or Monday morning.  Now that it has slowed, doesn't really matter what day.

Monday thru Wednesday so that agents have time to be see the listing going live and set up appts., or since I always reverse prospect that gives me time to get that done.

The best day is the soonest you can get it on the market. Buyers are searching and looking everyday and I would hate for them to miss out on a new great listing by trying to time it just right.  They might be ready to put an offer in on another home

Early in the week is best.  It takes an average of 72 hours for listings to syndicate across the web out here, so by Wednesday to get the most "bang for your buck" on the first weekend.

I don't pay attention to the day.  Feel if I post a listing to the MLS agents will be searching criteria close to their clients needs.  Not so much seeing my listing and making a point to sell it.  Interesting answers.  I will need think this through.  mark

The day you are fully ready to post completely. I don't understand agents that post a new listing and then take 2 or 3 or more days to up load photos. Talk about loosing all your new listing eyeball juice. By the time they get the photos up loaded it's not on the hot sheet any more and everyone set up for auto email updates got the email the day it was listed without any pics.
