Ideal Time to List a Home for Sale

Zillow has recently released its findings for the ideal time to list a home for sale. As the Sacramento area is a top metro area for the year 2017 it was included in the analysis by chief economist at Zillow, Dr. Svenja Gudell.

For Sacramento, the ideal timeframe to list a home is the first two weeks of April, April 1-15. Homes listed during this time sell 17.5 days faster than the average with an average sales premium of $6,600.

This analysis also looked at which day of the week is ideal to list the home. For the Sacramento area, they found Saturday to be ideal.

Real Estate by Carla’s personal experience, which is 16 years in the Real Estate field, has been that the ideal time to list a home in the Tri-County area is mid-March to mid-April. Similar to the study with a slightly earlier begin time, this allows for less competition with high demand. We also prepare our listings mid week to be viewed for the first time on Saturday of that week.
