Timing is everything and this is particularly true when selling a house. In fact, sellers can potentially net thousands of dollars more if they sell during the peak month of June versus the two slowest months of the year, October and December, according to a recent report by ATTOM Data.
Best time to sell a house
The first month of summer — June — is the best time to sell a house, netting a 9.2 percent seller premium, based on ATTOM Data’s analysis of 28 million single-family home and condo sales over eight years.
To determine the premium or discount sellers paid on a given day, ATTOM Data compared the median sales price for homes with a purchase closing on that day with the median automated valuation model (AVM) for those same properties at the time of sale. Here’s how each month of the year ranked for the best time to sell a house.
