A recent Realtor.com study found that, according to data from the last several years (leaving out the atypical 2020), there is indeed a preferred week of the year for sellers to put their home on the market — and it’s just around the corner.
According to this research, “The week of April 10 – 16 is expected to have the ideal balance of housing market conditions that favor home sellers, more so than any other week in the year.”
In light of this data, if you’ve been considering selling and are able to get your house ready for sale quickly, it may be in your best interests to start preparing to list your home on the market.
Keep reading to see what you can expect the week of April 10 – 16.
A Quick Sale
Realtor.com research shows that homes sell more quickly during this week in April than on other dates — which is likely to be in less than 18 days according to the National Association of REALTORS®’ projection.
Heightened Buyer Activity
Based on previous years, Realtor.com predicts higher buyer demand during this week in 2022. The increased competition could lead to multiple offer scenarios and bidding wars over your home, which will drive your ultimate sale price up and put more money in your pocket.
Low Inventory Will Make Your Home Shine
While it’s true that inventory is improving compared to earlier this year, it still remains at near-historic lows — and the Realtor.com data shows that the typical trend for this week of the year is that there will be even fewer homes on the market. This is a plus for you as a seller because it means your home will become more desirable.
If you want to take advantage of this strong buyer demand and receive the most dedicated attention on your house, selling during this week in April is a great option. To get your home prepared for sale quickly and efficiently, contact me today..!
