According to ATTOM Data Solutions, there are nine days of the year that offer U.S. home sellers a premiums of 10 percent or more - eight of which occur in the Summer months, while one occurs the day after Valentine's day.
Sellers who want to wait for the weather to heat up, will receive the hottest seller premiums as well. This analysis of more than 28 million single family home and condo sales over the past eight years is evidence that Summer is when people are looking to buy, therefore if you're looking to sell your home soon, now is the time to start.
"Since Summer is a time for vacations and outings, it's no surprise that it's also a time when people are most likely to move," said Todd Teta, chief product officer with ATTOM Data Solutions. "Families start their home search when they know their kids will be out of school and when the weather is ideal for home viewing and moving, giving home sellers an upper hand in price negotiations."
