Describe Your Perfect Date – To List Your Home, That Is

We see….a date in your future….a date that will provide the best time to sell your home…

Actually, ATTOM Data Solutions became the fortune teller we all wish for when we’re on the fence about listing a home.

The company analyzed more than 28 million single-family home and condo sales over the past eight years to find the best time of year to sell. Summer, coming as no surprise, was the top contender. But, what are the exact dates ATTOM found?

May 24th, May 31st, June 20th, June 21st, and June 28th were the dates to watch. With average seller premiums of 10% or more, it might be worth it to wait and list your home on one of these dates.

Todd Teta, Chief Product Officer at ATTOM, explains, “Families start their home search when they know their kids will be out of school and when the weather is ideal for home viewing and moving, giving home sellers an upper hand in price negotiations.”
