April is the Hottest Time to Sell Your Home
Everything has a season. Real estate is no exception.
While, of course, I'd like home sales to stay steady throughout the year, that's just not reality. In truth, the most real estate transactions occur during the spring - specifically April through June.
If selling your home is a priority in 2015, try to get it on the market by April. According to the latest edition of Consumer Reports, the second quarter of the year is the best time to sell. If you're really serious, the single best month to sell is April.
I think closing a deal in April is ideal for many people. Usually, closing will happen around May, then people can have the summer to get settled in their new home. Buyers with kids in school seem to really like this timing.
