So, what, exactly, about this week makes it such a great time? According to the analysis (which looked at 2021 trends), there are a number of reasons why April 10th through the 16th is the ideal time to list your home, including:
- Higher buyer interest… During the week of April 10th through the 16th, there are 27 percent more buyers viewing listings on realtor.com than the average week. That means more buyers will see your home, which could lead to more showings—and more offers.
