What is/are the BEST and WORST MONTHS to list house for sale?

Response

The housing market is becoming less "seasonal" than it used to be, with short sales and REOs coming on at all times of the year. Many people wait for spring and summer for the weather (which is a great idea, especially if the house is dark) but I think other times of the year are great too. There is less competition in this buyers market during the winter with fewer houses on. Plus, waiting for the market to go up for 6-9 months could be a very big mistake in the long run...
