When is the best time to sell? I looked at last year’s data for Maricopa County and saw that most sales took place in May—more than 10,000, to be exact. It’s currently taking 60 days on average for a home on the MLS to go under contract, so to close in May, you’d want to list your home in March.
To answer the question more directly: The best time to put a home on the market is when you’ve decluttered, repainted, shampooed the carpets, staged the property, and done everything else that’s needed to get it ready for the market.
We’re in a strong seller’s market, so the sooner you prepare your house the better! For data on your personal property and to know your home value, please reach out to me. I’m always happy to receive your call or email.
