States Where Homes Fly Off the Shelves Fastest

|

Selling a home is a big financial decision, as hundreds of thousands of dollars can be on the line. You might consider yourself lucky if your home sells quickly at a top price, but luck isn’t the determining factor.

FindTheHome found that getting the best deal on your home sale can be all about timing. The data shows that the month when a house is listed can greatly impact the time it takes to sell.

If you follow the historic trend, you’ll see major yearly fluctuations in the amount of time it takes for a listed home to clear the market. Look a little closer, and you’ll notice that nationally, the time it takes to sell your home is shortest in the springtime, and longest as winter approaches.

Digging deeper into these peaks and troughs, FindTheHome identified the optimal month to list your home in all the states for which time on market data was available.
