(Question) Is there a specific time or time of the year that is best to buy or sell a home?
(Answer) I think generally you hear that the most active time of year to purchase or sell a home is Spring and Summer. Natural, because of the time and the weather. But there are pro’s and con’s to both. If you’re buying a home through the Fall and into the Winter there may be less homes to choose from but you have less competition in trying to purchase. If you’re trying to sell your home it’s the same thing, you may have less activity with buyers but the buyers who are looking are more serious. There’s pro’s and con’s but in general the more inventory will be Spring and Summer. If you’re looking to sell there are more buyers in Spring and Summer but there’s more competition.
