When is the best time to sell a property?

Q: Gerald, when is the best time to sell a property?
Gail, Rye, NY

A: Gail, home buyers generally tend to come out in droves during the spring. Also, spring buyers with recently received tax refund checks in their bank accounts pay full price more often than at other times of the year. This may explain why more than half of those who move do so in the summer. Regardless of what time of year you choose to sell, the key to getting top dollar for your property is pricing—you must price it to sell, if you overprice a property it will most likely sit on the market regardless of the time of year. Thanks for your question, Gail. Good luck. For more real estate tips and information, visit I’m Gerald Lucas and I’ll see you again soon.
