Selling your house?
Q. What is the best month to list a home (with kids for sale?
A. With school-aged children, you may want your move to coincide with the end of school, for which selling in the spring makes sense. Research historical data on the number of homes sold in your neighborhood looking for trends in peak months. Sellers need to remember that it can take 30 to 60 days (or more) from the time a contract is signed to the time its actual closing date arrives. Therefore, families moving in the summer will make offers several months prior. Homeowners looking to sell need to be talking with an experienced Realtor® in Feb/March allowing time to get their home ready to go on the market by March/April; which in my opinion are the two PRIME months for listing a home.
