Fall and Winter are Great Times to Sell

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Gwen Fowler Real Estate, Inc 10307

2017 sales by monthFall and winter are great times to sell. We are seeing a reduction in inventory, but an increase in qualified buyers. This means if you are looking to sell this year you still have 4 months to market your property to a more qualified buyer and less competition for that buyer. 


When we review the sales for the 1st quarter of 2017, 20% of the inventory for the year sold.  In the 2nd quarter-spring and usually the best time to sell, 29%.  The 3rd quarter was close behind at 27% and the surprise was the 4th quarter with Christmas, Thanksgiving and all the other reasons not to work the last quarter, came in at 24%.

Breaking it down by months we have:

  •          January  with 356 sales
  •          February with 393 sales
  •          March with 589 sale
    •          1st quarter total was 1338 sales.
  •          April 558 Sales
  •          May 641 Sales
  •          June 716 Sales
    •          2nd quarter total was 1915 sales.
  •          July -598 Sales
  •          August-672 Sales
  •          September 538 Sales
    •          3rd quarter total was 1808 sales.
  •          October-528 sales
  •          November 515 sales
  •          December 536 sales

4th quarter total was 1579 sales

Hello Gwen,  Great information for buyers and sellers to know about.  I so agree with fall and winter sales being good.

This is true, always a question in Buyers and Sellers minds. A graph always helps clients see for themselves especially when you personally broke it down for them!
