There Really Is A Spring Market!

We've always heard that there's a "spring market" in real estate going back years when families bought in the spring so that they could move & their children could be registered for school in time for September.

Depending on where you live there could be other peak selling times too but the most comprehensive report has recently been released from Attomdata.  It analyzed 51 milion sales of houses & condos in the US over 11 years & found that Sellers got the highest premium on sale price during these months:

May 12.8%

June 10.7%

April 10.3%

Every market is a little different but it does show a general trend that's hard to argue based on their data.  Not surprisingly, the price premium declines in the last few months of the year.
