When is the Best Month to Sell Your Home?

We hear it all the time, potential home sellers concerned about putting their house on the market at the right time.  “When is the best month to sell our home?”  Is it May, when schools are out, or March, when spring awakens and people are itching for change?

According to 2009 homes sales in East Nashville, the best month to sell your home is September.  Sales prices and units raise throughout the first half of the year and then plateau at a high point over the summer, but September shows the highest number of units sold and still the highest average sales price, making it the best month to sell your home.  Lots of closings are happening, and you haven’t had to drop your price to get the attention your home deserves.

If you’re thinking of selling your house, right now would be an ideal time to list.
