At Interwest Movers, we’re proud to help people looking to move to a new area. If you’re a homeowner, though, you’ll need to sell your home before moving. If you’re looking to become a homeowner, you’ll need to buy one first.

When is the best time to buy a house? When is the best time to sell one? In this article, we’ll answer both of those questions. We hope this helps you as you prepare to relocate to a new area.

When Is The Best Time To Buy A House?

The best time to buy a house will depend on what you’re looking for.

We can say with some level of confidence that the holiday months are the slowest time of year. November through January, people are trying to plan Thanksgiving, Christmas, and other holidays. This isn’t even accounting for the fact that many people don’t want to be on the road when it’s so cold.

You may be able to buy homes cheaper during this time of year than any other, since the people who put their properties on the market are typically the most desperate to sell.

That said, if you have a specific home or type of home you’re looking for, you’ll find that your options are much more limited than they would be during the summer months.

When Is The Best Time To Sell A House?

The average listing price of homes sold in the first 15 days in May is $1,600 higher than it is throughout the rest of the year.

This is an ideal time to sell, but you’ll want to check with your local area, because this nationwide average changes significantly when looking at specific locales. Generally speaking though, you’ll want to sell your home in the spring or summer. People are looking for homes during this time because it makes it easier for kids to switch schools.

While you’re competing with more homes on the market, you’re also selling to people when they’re most interested. That means you’re likely to command a higher premium.
