Misconception: Spring is the best time to sell a home
Traditionally, many buyers come to the market in the spring to secure a new home before the start of the following school year in September. This decades-long trend has made people think spring is the best time to list a home for sale.
But not all buyers today are families with kids. Buyers are single women, downsizers, baby boomers and people who don’t know — nor care — about the school calendar.
The best time to sell your home is when inventory is low, and that’s the dead of winter. Later in the year is better because buyers are still home shopping through the holiday season.
