If you've ever wondered if there is a best time to sell your house, wonder no longer and get ready to list it in time for May. Zillow, the online real estate database company, crunched sales numbers in 24 real estate markets and found in more than half of those markets, the first half of May was the best time to list a property. Homes put on the market then tended to not only sell faster than those listed at different times in the year but also go for more cash. On average, homes listed during that time went for $2,400 more than other times of the year and sold 2 weeks sooner. One of the reasons May works for home sellers is a lack of available homes for sale in spring. One other tidbit of advice, put your house on the market on a Saturday, which tended to help homes sell faster.
