This Is The Best Week To List Your Home To Sell in 2023
Selling a home can be a stressful experience. You want to get the best price for your property, and you want to do it as quickly as possible. Fortunately, there are certain times of the year when it's easier to sell a home, and 2023 has a particular week that's expected to be the best for home sellers.
Is there is a best week to list?
According to a recent analysis by Realtor.com, the week of April 16-22, 2023, is the best time to list your home for sale. During this week, homes typically sell more quickly and for a higher price than during other weeks of the year.
How much impact does this week make?
Just how much extra cash can a seller potentially pocket and how fast can a home go from a new listing to the closing table?
During the best week to list, home prices are expected to be $8,400 higher than the typical week—and a whopping $48,000 above early 2023 prices. Real estate listings are expected to receive 16.4% more views than in the typical week.
There are several reasons why this week is ideal for home sellers. First, the spring is generally a good time to sell a home. The weather is warming up, and buyers are starting to look for new homes. In addition, many families want to move before the start of the school year, which means they're more likely to start looking for a home in the spring.
Another reason why this week is a great time to sell your home is that it falls right after the end of Daylight Saving Time. This means that there will be more daylight in the evenings, which is important for buyers who want to view homes after work. Longer days also make homes look more inviting and can help increase the curb appeal of your property.
What Should You Be Doing?
If you're planning to sell your home during this week, there are several things you can do to increase your chances of a successful sale. Here are some tips to help you prepare:
