According to the popular Christmas song, the holidays are the most wonderful time of the year. But not if you’re trying to sell a home. After all, winter is typically not the time home buyers go out shopping for a house. So what is the best time of the year if you’re a homeowner with a house to sell? Well, according to a new analysis from ATTOM Data Solutions, spring and summer are the seasons when sellers see the biggest premiums. In fact, of the nine days of the year that sellers saw a premium of 10 percent or more, eight of them occurred during summer months. Todd Teta, chief product officer with ATTOM, says this is no surprise. “Since Summer is a time for vacations and outings, it’s no surprise that it’s also a time when people are most likely to move,” Teta said. “Families start their home search when they know their kids will be out of school and when the weather is ideal for home viewing and moving, giving home sellers an upper hand in price negotiations.” Specifically, May and June are the best months for selling a house, with homes sold in June selling for an average of 9.2 percent above estimated market value.
