The Best Week To Sell Your Home In 2024

Sell your home
April is the best month to list your home for sale in 2024!

Traditionally, spring is the time to sell your home. With blooming flowers and warmer weather, people are naturally drawn to open houses and envisioning themselves spending time outdoors in a new backyard. But in 2024, there might be a specific window within the spring season that could be even more advantageous for sellers.

According to a recent Realtor.com® study, the week of April 14th could be the sweet spot for sellers. The data suggests a confluence of factors that could lead to top dollar offers. We discuss below.

Reasons to sell your home

  • High Buyer Demand: Spring is already a time when buyers are actively searching, and this year could see that demand remain strong.
  • Low Seller Competition: Compared to the beginning of the year, the number of sellers putting their homes on the market may start to level off by mid-April.
  • Fewer Price Reductions: With a good balance of interested buyers and limited competing listings, sellers might be less likely to need to reduce their asking price.

Why is April 14th – 20th the best time to sell your home?

  • More views per listing: Home views on Realtor.com® increase by 22.8% this week as compared to the average week.
  • Homes sell faster: Homes typically sell 17% faster during this week as compared to the average week.
  • Higher median list price: Homes have a 34% higher median list price as compared to the beginning of the year.
  • Less inventory of homes for sale: During this week there are 40% less homes for sale on the market as compared to pre-pandemic levels. Furthermore, there are 13.7% less homes for sale on the market as compared to a typical week in the year.

Summary

Even if you can’t quite hit the week of April 14th, spring in general is still a great time to sell. Here’s why:

  • Pleasant weather: As mentioned before, good weather entices buyers and allows for attractive outdoor presentations of your property.
  • Increased inventory: With more homes on the market, buyers have options, but it also means yours has a chance to stand out.
  • School breaks: Spring break for families can be a prime time for home buying trips.
  • Timing for a summer close: Many families prefer to go house hunting in the spring so that they can time the closing for early summer. This timing is ideal so that it allows for a summer move while the children are not in school.

As always, every local market is unique. For this reason, it is highly recommended that you consult with a local and knowledgeable real estate agent.
