The best time is when you are truly serious, understand the financials of selling and the next step, and the home is in great shape and ready for prime time

I believe that is a decision only the owner of the property can make.   There are so many variables, too many to list here, that must be considered.

My initial thought was " N O W " but that was selfish of me.   I think it should be on the seller's schedule to best meet their needs, wants and goals.

Anytime, though here in our community you will have the most traffic 6 months out of the year, when snowbirds and vacationers are in town.  That being said, homes do sell year-round Robert 'VEGAS BOB' Swetz, and for motivated sellers, 'right now' is my reply!

The best time to sell is when the seller is ready to sell.  Perfect timing is an accident that people brag about after the fact.

You can never time the market . When your ready to sell then put it on the market . There are always buyers looking to buy so you should not be worried about timing . When you buy a lottery ticket do decide where or when to buy. Do you time the stock market ? The same applies to a home .

Good question.

My question(s) back is/are

- Why are you needing to sell?

- Do you need to sell it to buy another?

- When to you need/want to be in the next?

 

The answers tell us when is the best time to list a home.

Do you NEED to sell now?

Do you NEED to sell by May?

Do you NEED to sell by August?

If there is no NEED to sell, the best time will prove unimportant.

From my experience selling real estate, I think the best time to sell might depend on what part of the country and world you live.

In the United States if the market is not suppressed I have always found the best time to list and or sell would be between Jan & April.

​Bob,

Once again I agree with Jeff Dowler CRS. However a very important aspect of the discussion is when will your house appraise at the value you need. It doesn't do a lot of good to get a great offer if the most likely comps won't support it.

Best time to sell is when the homeowner has a reason.  They will be more cooperative.  Local market does make a difference also.

If the homeowner has decided to sell, then NOW is the best time. There is no reason to wait. It's getting to that decision that is the hardest for homeowners. It doesn't matter that we are talking about a house. Anytime you make a decision, not matter what it is, act on it.
