Today I want to talk to you about the selling seasons of real estate. These are the three major selling seasons we typically see in a calendar year:
- The beginning of the year. From January to early February, we see an increase in inventory, and buyers start to evaluate what’s happening.
- The spring market. Most people think that April and May are the best months to list so that you can close in time for the start of the school year.
- Near Labor Day. Around the end of August, there’s an increase in inventory, and buyers come back.
Historically, there have been peaks and valleys of when homes hit the market and when they closed. Over time, those peaks and valleys have become more muted due to internet marketing and a more transient society.
If you’re still thinking of buying or selling, you should see more inventory and buyers soon. If you have any questions about this or anything else, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me.
