The Best Week Of The Year To List Your House Is Almost Here

Image title


Are you thinking about making a move and selling your home? If so, now may be the perfect time to start the process. That’s because experts say the best week to list your house is just around the corner. A recent Realtor.com study looked at housing market trends over the past several years (with the exception of 2020, since it was an unusual year), and found the best week to put your house on the market this year is April 14-20:


“Every year, one week stands out from the rest as that perfect stretch of time when it’s great to be a home seller. This year, the week of April 14–20 is the best time to sell—that is, if sellers want to see lots of interest in their homes, sell quickly, and pocket some extra cash, according to Realtor.com® data.”


Here’s why this matters for you. While the spring market is a great time to sell a home no matter the week, this may be the peak sweet spot. And if you’ve been putting your plans on the back burner and waiting for the right time to sell, this could be the nudge you need to make your move happen. As Hannah Jones, Senior Economic Research Analyst at Realtor.com explains:


“The 3rd week of April brings the best combination of housing market factors for sellers. The best week offers higher buyer demand, lower competition [from other sellers], and fewer price reductions than the typical week of the year.”


But, if you want to get in on the action, you’ll need to move quickly and lean on the pros. Here at the Sandy Hartmann Group, we have YEARS of expertise when it comes to figuring out a plan to prep your house and get it on the market. Comparatively, our team's listings often sell faster and for more money than our competitors- for a reason.


Our team of listing specialists will be able to offer advice to balance your target listing date with what you need to do from a repair and renovation standpoint. And they can walk you through exactly how to prioritize your list so you know what to tackle first, whether it be small updates, deep cleaning, or getting quotes from a home staging company.


For example, if your house is already in good shape, you’ll be able to really focus in on the smaller things that are easy to do and make a big impact. As an article from Investopedia says:

“You won’t have time for any major renovations, so focus on quick repairs to address things that could deter potential buyers.”


Additionally, here are some specific examples of housing inventory trends from that article:

Just remember, even if you’re not ready to list within the next couple of weeks, that’s okay. The window of opportunity doesn’t close when this week ends. Spring is the peak homebuying season and it’s still a seller’s market when it comes to single-family homes in Pinellas County, so you’ll be in the driver’s seat all season long.


Another great 1st step is figuring out what your home is worth. The very best way to do this is to call our team at (727) 398-2310 to schedule a free, in-person valuation of your home. Not ready for that? Try our easy and free instant home value estimate tool HERE. (Remember, this is just an estimate and can vary based on improvements you've made and other home features we won't be able to add to the value until we see your home in person.)
