Believe it or not, the time of the year is a factor to consider when selling your home in Florida. The month you pick to list your property can affect how quickly it sells and for how much. Before you put your property on the market, find out which season is the best time to sell a home in Florida.
So what are the best months to sell your home in Florida? Keep reading to find out.
The Best Season to Sell a Home in Florida
Generally, determining the best season to sell your home in Florida is somewhat subjective. It depends on your circumstances and specific goals. With that said, if you’re looking to get the most money for your home in the shortest amount of time, here is when you should list it:
December: Prime prices
December is one of the best months to sell your home in Florida for top dollar. Families with kids often want to move before the start of the school year, so they’re willing to pay a premium.
What’s more? People tend to have some disposable income during the holidays, thanks to year-end bonuses and holiday gifts. As a result, they’re more likely to make a large purchase like a home.
If your goal is to sell your house fast, November may be the month for you. In general, properties listed in November tend to spend less time on the market than those listed in other months. On average, homes sell about four days faster in November than any other month.
One reason is that there are usually fewer homes on the market in November than in other months. That means there’s less competition, making it easier to sell your property quickly.
While these two months apply to the entire state of Florida, the trend may vary from region to region. The table below shows the best time to list your property in the five major cities.
Of course, these are just averages. You may be able to get more (or less) depending on the state of the market in your city and other factors.
Remember that time is not the only factor to consider when selling your home. Your home’s condition, the current state of the market, and your circumstances will all play a role in how much your home sells for and how long it takes to sell. It also comes down to how and who you list your home with. (1)
