When the weather is nice

The reason is because inventory being so tight, some home buyers are having to put in multiple offers. 

We also suggest during the warmer weather since more people go out to home shop starting in spring and continuing through the summer, which also allows them to take advantage of school holidays and vacations in an effort to minimize disruption to their lives.

Reasons to sell during the “off-season”

Buyers shopping for homes during this time of the year are more motivated to close the deal.

Home buyer's shopping in the fourth quarter tend to be more serious buyers. Some are relocating and have to move at a set time. Some are renters, who are considering their options and think they might find better prices in the winter. 

And since most sellers list their homes during the warmer months for the convenience of it, sellers who opt for late fall and winter are likely to have less competition.

Optimal listing times always vary based on local housing market dynamics, your circumstances, and the sellable features and condition of your home.
