Depending on the specifics of your market, and the value of your home, it could be an excellent time.  Most of the country is seeing a shortage of inventory at this time, which is helping drive the prices up.  It is also not unheard of for homes to be listed at a good price, causing the seller to receive multiple offers, and even getting over the list price.  Each market is unique and as you often will hear, speak with a local professional REALTOR and they can advise you to what your specific market trends are as of now.

I hope that helps and good luck moving from for sale, to SOLD!

If you are moving onto another purchase it is a great time to sell. With interest rates at record lows it is a great time to buy. If you are selling and buying another property it always evens itself out. If you are selling high, you are also buying high, Selling low, buying low. When this happens at low interest rates, assuming you are financing it is a great time. Karl is correct about the low inventory. This may prove to make your next buy a little tough.

It is always a good time to sell !!
 It is true that it can matter where your location, not many buyers are thinking about say beach front property in winter but then again it just might be someones day dream to provide a little escapism from the cold.
   Interest rates are low, Buyers are pent up and want to get on with their lives and jump on deals, and in general the recession is over (depends on your location). 
  It is a good time to sell. 
#1 hire a good agent
#2 clean and repair your property so it will be standing tall.
#3 price it right
#4 negotiate all the offers
 Good luck.

There is a decreasing supply of inventory in my market.  Good houses are rising in value daily.  Yes, good time to sell

Perhaps everyone missed the part where the OP is an agent?

I truly think that this is a loaded question. You must take a look at the local market and see what is selling. I know in my market higher value homes are selling at a much faster rate than lower value homes (under 100K). With the economy starting to pick back up people are looking to upgrade their homes so it may be a good time to place your home up for sale, if it is within that market share. However if you have a smaller home or "starter home" you may want to sit on it for a while and wait for the prices to rise in that market. As soon as lower income buyers have the money that market will spurt too.
