Times are changing and you’re thinking about moving the family into a new home. But before you start searching for your next dream home, you’ll need to figure out when you’re going to sell your existing home. The decision is a complex one, especially considering the unpredictable economic environment you’re living in. And while there’s no magic formula for determining the best time to sell a home, there are several factors you should consider.
The Wrong Time to Sell
There is NO wrong time to sell in San Antonio, especially with our large military population. There is a different group of buyers and sellers at the this time of year. The benefits include: less seller competition (fewer homes on the market), more serious buyers, AND you get to move in a Texas “winter” so it won’t be 102 degrees!
The Best Season for Selling
Conventional wisdom dictates that spring is the best time to sell a home. In spring, the holidays have past, the new school year is still a while away, and gardens and other outdoor spaces tend to look their best. And while spring is the season that sees the largest amount of buyers, it’s also the season when inventories are highest. This means lots of competition, so if you’re going to sell in spring, you really need to get your property to stand out, bring your A game and make your house really shine, and we will bring our A game with effective marketing and staging.
The Best Day for Selling
According to research and our personal experience, Thursday is the best day of the week to list your home for sale. By listing your home for sale on a Thursday, you can make it available immediately for weekend showings. Come Saturday – the busiest day for real estate – your home will have only been on sale for two days, which is great for attracting full-price offers. In general, the shorter amount of time your home remains on the market, the higher the offer you’ll receive.
