According to a new report by Zillow, if you want to optimize your home selling outcome, your best bet is to list it between May 1st through 15th, because homes put on the market during that period tend to get snapped up nine days faster and for at least 1% more than the listing price. In fact, late spring, either April or May, is the best time to sell a house in 20 of the 25 largest metro areas in the country.
Believe it or not, the day of the week that you list a house can also be a factor in how fast you sell and how much money you get. According to Zillow, listings that turn up on a Saturday get about 20% more views in the first week than those listed in the earlier part of the week. In addition, a listing that appears on a Friday will get 14% more views than those listed on a Monday.
