Q: Currently when is the best time to list your house?
It is mid January we are currently getting an estimate for putting in city sewage, new roof, and driveway. We are hoping to have this done by the end of February.
A: The best time to sell your house is when you are absolutely ready.
A home on the market cannot be a work in progress, as you will never get an opportunity to re-interest a buyer turned off by something avoidable. When the home is de-cluttered, clean, and show ready, you can welcome potential buyers with confidence.
People sometimes think that Spring is the optimal time. But keep in mind that you will have more competition then. Buyers looking for a home in the winter months are usually pretty serious and need to make a decision.
