Real Estate Experts Note a Specific Week in April is the Best Time of the Year to Sell Your Home
LAS VEGAS, NV – When it comes to selling your home, owners are naturally looking to get the very best price they can in return for their pricey investment. And while spring is considered by many the best time of the year to list your property, real estate experts are noting that one specific week in April – especially in Las Vegas – is typically the best time to put your house on the market.
Many experts have shown that sellers can get significantly more in return for their homes when they list them in springtime; according to reports a home that would normally fetch $187,000 in January can sell for as much as $208,273 in May.
But in 2023 real estate gurus are noting that April is looking more and more like the best time of the year to sell a home for numerous reasons, with the week of April 16 to 22 – particularly in Las Vegas –being ideal due to the fact that the rapidly changing real estate market is anticipated to reach its zenith during that specific one-week span of time, according to Sam Saltzwedel from Realtor.com.
“That’s largely because families want to move when school is out. Interest rates aren’t significantly going down yet. [They] are basically the only factor that stopped houses from continuing to skyrocket,” he said. “While it does not have the highest price or the lowest time on market, this week offers higher than average prices and lower than average time on markets while also offering a higher-than-average number of buyers.”
That ideal week, however, can change depending on which city across the country you may be examining; while April 16 to 22 is considered the target in Las Vegas and numerous other cities this year, experts say the last week of March was the time to list in Los Angeles or Chicago, whereas in Seattle the ideal listing week would be April 2 to 9.
The exact formula for determining the ideal listing week comes down to listing prices, the average number of days on the market, and online views per property; in addition, the number of other sellers in a given region that will provide competition for your listing is also a factor, with too much inventory being available in a particular market often driving down demand or prices.
