When is the Best Time to Sell My Florida Home?

It’s a question Florida Realtors get asked all the time. Before any homeowner decides to sell there are a few questions that need to be answered.


  1. What is my home worth and what price should I list it for?

  2. What real estate agent should I chose to represent me?

  3. When is the Best Time to sell my home?


There are many factors that go into answering these questions.  Certainly, the spring market has the reputation of being the best time to sell, but depending on the seller’s situation it may not be the right time.  In Florida, it’s more of an all-year-round market for obvious reasons. Weather does not play as big a factor in the decision to sell as in colder weather states.  There are good reasons to consider selling in the fall and winter months which are not as disadvantageous as one would think.


In the summer and spring sales volume is higher, but there are also more homes on the market than in the winter and fall.  Supply and demand tell us fewer homes on the market, more showings and less competition could mean higher sales prices!


During the holidays’ buyers that are looking are likely to be serious buyers.  Your home and neighborhood will be dressed up for the holidays, putting your best foot forward goes a long way toward a faster sale at a higher price.  Staging is an important element in how a home shows and what better time to have a home looking at its best than during the Christmas and Thanksgiving holidays!


A professional  Realtor will be able to develop a marketing plan to take advantage of the positives of selling your home during this time of year. They will also be able to offer tips and suggestions and staging advice to put your home in the best light possible.


In summation, don’t overlook the advantages of selling during the fall and winter season.  Less competition, serious buyers and home holiday staging could all add up to be advantageous for most sellers.
