There are many factors that impact the sale of a home but a big one is timing. It could sell within a week or sit on the market for months all depending on when you put it on the market.
According to a recent market analysis by Zillow, the best time to list your home in the Boston area is between April 16-30th. You’ll sell 13.5 days faster than average. They even took it one step further to pinpoint the best day to list in Boston – Wednesday.
"With 3 percent fewer homes on the market than last year, 2017 is shaping up to be another competitive buying season. Many homebuyers who started looking for homes in the early spring will still be searching for their dream home months later. By May, some buyers may be anxious to get settled into a new home—and will be more willing to pay a premium to close the deal.”
