Which is More Important: List Price or List Timing?

If you’ve made the decision to put your home on the market, you may be tempted to hold off depending on the time of year. Opinions regarding when prospective buyers are most tempted to buy may surface from every source, causing you to hold off on moving forward in hopes of snagging the sights of the most motivated buyers. However, experts state that the time of year in which you list your home is less important than your home’s listing price.

Given the ability for buyers to research listings from anywhere at any time, experts agree that timing isn’t as important of a factor as it used to be. However, a fairly priced home in a competitive market is appealing year-round.

Bottom line: work with your real estate agent to price your home competitively and pay less attention to the season.
