The Sanity Of March Madness

The Sanity Of March MadnessWhy You Should List A Home Now

You have probably heard the real estate advice that you should list your home in the spring so it will be ready for the summer rush of home buyers, but do you understand the logic behind the adage? So you can best understand exactly when you should list and why, here is some quick information.

Real estate experts say that the best time to list your home is between mid-March and late-April. Sports can help you remember the exact timeline; put your home on the market between when March Madness begins and Tiger Woods puts on his iconic red shirt during the last day of The Masters (that is, if he makes the cut).

To get even more specific, list your home on the market when the weather begins to warm in your area. For example, sunny real estate markets, like the ones we enjoy on the West Coast, should list around mid-March. If you live in a snowy region like Boston, however, you are best off waiting until April.

Why, exactly, should you list at this time? Listing now will help you both sell your home more quickly and sell it for more money. Homes sold in the next month sell for 2 percent more than the average listing at a rate of 15 percent faster. That means less time sitting on your for-sale home and an average of $4,000 more in your pocket.

Since you will list your home at the ideal time, it will likely sell very quickly. When you are looking for your next home, contact Avis Lending for a full understanding of your mortgage options.
