It is finally spring, and yes, that is the best time to sell your home. But if you want the quickest and biggest return, the exact time you should list your home varies depending on where you live, according to Zillow.
Generally speaking, if you list your home around the beginning of May you can expect to get a higher price (by about $2,400 on average) and have a quicker sale (about two weeks faster) than you would if you put your home on the market at any other time of year, Zillow found.
The listings website analyzed its sales data to determine the optimal time frame — right down to the day of the week — to list your home for sale in each of the 10 largest American metropolitan areas.
And in six of the areas identified in the study, the very best time to list your home is between May 1 and May 15 — in other words, right now.
