In what month do homes sell the fastest in Fairfax County Virginia?
If you look at the interactive chart below...April...has the shortest # of days on market in Fairfax County for the past 5 years. Days on market means the # of days from date a house was listed, to the day it went under contract.
That seems counter intuitive doesn't it? Too early? Most folks think that the summer months are the fastest selling. Nah.
The earlier you can get your house on the market in Spring...the easier and faster it will sell. You can see further evidence of this below in the average "# of days it takes from contract to settlement" by month.
Folks come to the Washington DC suburbs every month of the year due to transfers and voluntary re-locations. However there is slightly less competition for sellers from other listings in early spring, than there is in May-June. The chart below shows the number of active listings by month for the last 5 years. These charts are interactive so you can scroll over the chart bars and see the actual #s.
