When Should You Sell?

WOODBRIDGE, VA, Aug 07, 2017—If you're thinking about selling your home, you may be wondering when to do it. Should you wait for a particular season? Take a temperature on the market? The options can often seem overwhelming.

According to Stacy Magid, Real Estate Professional of Century 21 New Millennium, the best time to sell a home is simply when you're ready. This might be due to a need to relocate, or perhaps you've outgrown the space in your current home and you need to trade up or down. Maybe you have a brand new empty nest, or a baby on the way. When the time is right, you will likely feel it.

Of course, market conditions also play a role in when you should sell your home, as do seasonal conditions. "For example, your chances of getting top dollar for your home are more likely in a seller’s market, when demand outweighs supply, than in a buyer’s market," explains Magid.

Local and national economic factors also may dictate when to sell. If a major employer in your area is laying off workers, it may not be a good time to put your home up for sale. People will be cautious about buying when the future seems so unpredictable or bleak.

When you're looking at the timing of a home sale, consider the spring. "This is when the largest number of potential buyers hit the market," says Magid. Your home is likely to sell faster and at a higher price, although sales begin to pick up as early as February and start to slack off in July, the slowest month for real estate transactions.
