6 Best Months to Sell

Which are the six best months to sell your house?? Most people would venture to say June-July-August and then say ‘Definitely not December or January”.  Looking back over available inventory and sales activity during the past year, here are the months I found to have the most sales activity per individual listing.

  1. April
  2. March
  3. May
  4. June
  5. February
  6. January

I used sales per listing as my yard stick because if you have a lot of competition for a given property, then multiple offers are likely and prices are going to get bid up.  It’s ECON 101 – basic supply and demand.  Tax Day or April 15th is about the peak, with the peak 🗻 season covering the first six months of the year.

And just in case you’re curious, here’s how the rest of the year shakes out:

  1. July
  2. August
  3. September
  4. October
  5. December
  6. November
