Times are changing and you’re thinking about moving the family into a new home. But before you start searching for your next dream home, you’ll need to figure out when you’re going to sell your existing home. And while there’s no magic formula for determining the best time to sell a home, there are several factors you should consider.

The best season for selling is Spring and Fall.
Conventional wisdom dictates that spring is the best time to sell a home. In spring, the holidays have passed, the new school year is still a while away, and gardens and other outdoor spaces tend to look their best. And while spring is the season that sees the largest amount of buyers, it’s also the season when inventories are highest. This means lots of competition, so if you’re going to sell in spring, you really need to get your property to stand out with effective marketing and staging.  In Northwest Florida, Fall is a great time to sell your home or condo.  The weather is a little cooler, the tourists have gone home and everywhere looks a little cooler and the beaches, water and sunsets are spectacular.

The best day for Listing your Home
According to research, Thursday is the best day of the week to list your home for sale. By listing your home for sale on a Thursday, you can make it available immediately for weekend showings. Come Saturday – the busiest day for real estate – your home will have only been on sale for two days, which is great for attracting full-price offers. In general, the shorter the amount of time your home remains on the market, the higher the offer you’ll receive. I am a firm believer in having all the photographs ready, the yard mowed and the house organized before we make the listing live.
