Is spring still the best time to list a home for sale?
Every year, Zillow Research analyzes millions of U.S. home sales to pinpoint a time window in which homes sell faster and for more money compared with other times of year.
This year’s analysis was released in February, before the new coronavirus spread throughout the United States. It found that U.S. homes listed for sale in April sold more quickly and homes listed in early May sold for more. Whether that will hold true this year is unknown.
The analysis includes job market and mortgage rate data; both of those areas are likely to be significantly different this year than in previous years. It’s also worth noting that homes sell throughout the year at different price points, and local markets can have their own best times to sell.
