Does the day of the week that you list your home affect the sales price, the length of time it's on the market, or the number of showings? The answer may surprise you.
The Wall Street Journal reports that the day of the week that a home is listed can affect whether or not it sells. According to the report, homes that are listed on Fridays are more likely to sell than homes that are listed any other day of the week. Homes listed on Sundays are the least likely to get sold, according to the study.
Of course, the number of times a listing is viewed on line can be directly tied to how quickly it sells, how much it sells for, and how many showings it gets. The Wall Street Journal reports that the number of page views a home gets is dependent on the day of the week it was listed on. According to the report, homes listed on Fridays, Saturdays, or Sundays received less than the average number of page views while homes listed on Tuesdays received the most page views.
The Wall Street Journal also reports a link between how long a home stays on the market before selling and the day on which the home was listed. Homes listed on Fridays sell faster than homes listed any other days of the week.
So what do you think? Is this data statistically significant, or just coincidence?
