Is May the Best Time to List Your Home?

Top reasons why May is a great time to put your home on the market.

There’s nothing quite like the spring season! The birds are chirping, the sun is shining, and warmer days lie ahead. While May is the month to celebrate Mother’s Day and Memorial Day, you may want to add another item to your list – putting your home up for sale. While spring is a great time to list your property, May is particularly advantageous. Here’s why.

Timing allows for families to move before the new school year.

If they intend to move, families really want to close on a new home before the end of summer. Changing school districts after the school year has started is not fun for any family. Families will often start looking for homes in May with the hope to close on a house in July or August. More families looking means there’s a greater chance for your property to sell quickly!

Buyers are getting serious.

Although May is typically a seller’s market, buyers are looking to snap up a property before the summer season kicks off. Sellers who may have been looking since the start of spring may be eager to secure a home. Before the summer vacations, people want to find their dream property.

The weather is beautiful.

Sure, the weather in California is beautiful all year long, but May brings us colorful flowers and golden sunshine without the scorching temperatures. Of course, lovely weather also means lovely homes. Your home will look its best in the spring when the flowers are blooming and the grass is looking green.
