Contrary to popular belief, selling your home during the spring might not be your best option. Recent data from Redfin suggests that you should put your house on the market sooner than later.
The real estate website found that 59.2% of homes listed for sale now actually sell versus 53.1% that sell during the summer. Additionally, houses that go on the market in the winter sell closer to their asking price than homes sold during the warmer months.
So with mortgage rates at still near-record lows, perhaps now is the time to stick that “for sale” sign in the front yard and upgrade to that two-story Tudor you’ve been dreaming about.
