When Is The Best Time To Sell?

Clients often ask me … “When is the best time to sell?”.  In Cambridge and greater Boston, the largest inventory of homes for sale typically occurs in Spring and early Summer.  On average the largest number of buyers looking to buy a new home also occurs during this time.  Last year, Cambridge Single Family, Condo and Multi-Family listings increased significantly in mid-April (211 listings), mid-May (332) and late May (509).

Weather and school schedules play a large part in timing as most home owners prefer to wait for warmer weather and with young children, tend to wait until the end of the school year. Timing is everything and waiting too long could result in more competition (more inventory means more choices for home buyers in the market).  Every home truly is unique – contact me to get your home ready to sell at just the right time!
