Maybe. Here’s How to Figure Out If Now’s the Right Time to Sell Your Home
Not sure if now’s a good time to list your home? It’s a major decision, and timing it right can go a long way towards getting the best price for your home — and selling it quickly.
So, here’s a look at what you need to consider as you decide whether to sell your home now or wait.
Is Now a Good Time to Sell a House?
Your circumstances and needs will help you figure out the answer to this question. Specifically, you need to think about whether:
- It’s a buyer’s or seller’s market: A buyer’s market means full inventory and plenty of options for buyers while a seller’s market occurs when inventory is low and demand is high. If the housing market is favoring sellers right now, it could be a prime time for you to list your house and get more money for it. If not — and if you can wait — you’re likely better off holding off until the markets cycle back and favor sellers again.
- Your house is ready to be listed: Is your home in decent to good condition? Are there any major repairs or issues that need to be addressed before you list it? You can always put your house on the market, no matter what its condition is, but you’re going to get more for it if it’s in good shape with no major problems.
- You need to get rid of your home: If you have to offload a house quickly, then the condition of the home and the markets likely won’t matter as much as getting the home sold ASAP. When time is of the essence, you may not get the best price for a house, but there are certainly strategies you can use to sell it fast.
- You’re ready to move: Are you mentally prepared to part ways with your home? Are you ready to pick up everything, find a new place to live, and start fresh somewhere else? This can be a more sensitive issue than you realize, especially when a house has been part of your family for years.
When Is the Best Time to Sell a House?
Personal circumstances aside, the best time to list a house and try to sell it is generally in spring, around May. That’s because the housing market tends to pick up as the weather warms up — and by summertime, things can be in full swing, with plenty of inventory and purchase-ready buyers.
That said, there can be advantages to selling a home in fall and winter too, like standing out among fewer listings (because housing inventory in Texas and across the U.S. tends to decline during the fall and winter).
