When is the best time to put your home on the market? This is a question we get all the time. To answer it, let’s discuss the number of accepted offers accepted each month and which months have the most real buyers.
According to data from SCWMLS, the most offers were accepted in April, when 796 homes were received accepted offers. But the real upward trend begins in March, when 789 homes went under contract, nearly as many as April, and in May 760 homes went under contract before beginning to subside in June. There is another decrease in July, where 527 homes reached agreement, before dropping off significantly in August. As you can see from the data, the spring is the best time to list. As new buyers come onto the market, they can choose your home. You don’t want your home to reach the market after the spring surge in buyers and consequently languish on the market.
