I can tell you the worst time is probably right before Christmas, but when is the BEST time? Is it in the Spring? Middle of the Summer? Is it in the fall so you can showcase your home's fireplace?
I know that here in Fort Wayne the market slows down in November, December and January, and starts to pick up again in February and really starts shaking in the Spring time. But really, what is the best time to list your house?
Many potential homeowners have told me that they want to wait until Spring to list because that's when the market picks up. My question to them is this:
Why would you want to list your house around the same time most other's are going to list their house too? Why not list it now, in February? There are buyers out there right now looking for a home to buy and yours may be it! Less houses on the market = a better chance of it selling. It's simple supply and demand.
What are your thoughts on the best time to list a home? Thanks!!
