Listing your home is an extremely personal discussion that should not be marred by the seasons. Here in Montana, Real Estate, much like the people, do not slow when the cold weather hits. Further research reveals “Spring wins in one category: Speed. Homes listed in spring sell the fastest, sitting on the market for 15% less time than the median. Winter comes in second in this category though, at six percent below the median, while homes listed in summer and fall both sell slower than the median (12% and 16%, respectively).”
