The best week to list your house is almost here!

The best week to list your house is almost here!

Are you thinking about making a move? If so, now may be the perfect time to start the process. A recent realtor.com study looked at the housing market trends over the past several years (with the exception of 2020), since it was obviously an unusual year and found the best week to put your house on the market. This year is April 14 – 20.

Here’s why this matters for you. While the spring market is a great time to sell no matter the week, this may be the peak sweet spot of higher buyer demand and fewer price reductions that the typical week of the year.

There is still time to get in on the action however, you’ll need to move more quickly to figure out a plan to prep your house and get it on the market. I can help offer advice to balance your target listing date with what you need to do from a repair and renovation standpoint and walk you through exactly how to prioritize your list so you know what to tackle first. If your house is already in good shape, you’ll be able to really focus in on the smaller things that are easy to do and make a big impact and since there is not much time for any major renovations, focusing on quick repairs to address things that could deter potential buyers is crucial.

If you’re not ready to list within the next couple of weeks, that’s OK, too! The window of opportunity doesn’t just close when this weekends. Spring is the peak homebuying season and it’s still a sellers market.

Perhaps this is the nudge you need to make your move happen? I’m ready to chat next steps.
