Seller's Tips April 30, 2024

When is the best time to sell my home?

Selling your home is a major decision and timing can greatly affect the sale of your home. Many factors come into play when deciding when to list; market trends, seasonal trends, and personal factors in your life. Real Estate Agents with Century 21 Northstar in Portland can help guide you through these factors to best determine when is the best time to list for you.

Seasonal Considerations

Every year the real estate market fluctuates with the seasons during the year. Below is a breakdown of the advantages and drawbacks of selling your home during different seasons.

  1. Spring: Spring is often considered the best time to sell your home. We are coming out of winter and the weather is warming up, people want to get outside. Blooming flowers in yards help elevate your property’s curb appeal. Additionally, those with children tend to prefer to move during the summer to not disturb their child’s school year, making spring the perfect time to start their search.
  2. Summer: Summer doesn’t see as much activity in spring, however, the market is generally still very active. Longer days and warmer weather make it easier for buyers to view homes. Also many use summer as a season to accomplish job transfers and a change of pace.
  3. Fall: Fall can be a good time to sell as people tend to slow down after summer vacations and the temperatures cooling. Also your property may shine with fall curb appeal as the leaves change colors. Also with less homes on the market compared to spring and summer your home may stand out.
  4. Winter: Winter typically is the slowest season in the real estate market, however, there are still good opportunities for sellers. Winter tends to weed out just lookers and leaves just serious buyers. There is also less competition against your home during this season.
