Sage Realty Reveals the Best Time to List Homes for Sale in Wayne PA
Wayne, PA – April 27, 2017 – Sage Realty, whose realtors are committed to helping clients get the best offers for their homes for sale in Wayne PA, explains that the best time for sellers to list their homes in the Philadelphia Main Line area is early May: May 1 through May 5, to be precise.
According to a recent Zillow study, the overall average best time in most markets to sell is May 1-15, and is deemed such by virtue of the fact that the homes sell about 1% higher price and an average of 9 days sooner. In Philadelphia specifically, the average sales premium for a home sold within this window was $2000.
Why is this data so important? Interest in a home listing declines dramatically after two weeks to a month, so getting as much visibility as possible in those first weeks is vital. By choosing the best time for our geographical area, a person listing homes for sale in Wayne or other Main Line communities has a better chance of earning their asking price.
In addition to timing, sellers can do a few other things to sell homes more quickly. For example:
- Work with a Realtor® to determine the best asking price. If the home is priced too high initially, sellers could miss out on a large potential audience.
- Take great pictures. If you have a fantastic house, but the photos are poor quality, i.e they have bad lighting or angles, prospective buyers might be deterred from looking.
- Make sure your landscaping is in order. Linda Walters, owner of Sage Realty, advises “Sellers should take advantage of the spring flowers. In May, they look beautiful and really accentuate the natural stone so many of the Main Line homes feature.”
