A few times recently, I’ve read that it’s best to list a house on Thursday.
According to the article writers, a house listed on Thursday will sell faster than a house listed any other day of the week.
No one has stated how they came to this conclusion. Did they find 3 or 4 identical houses in the same neighborhood, then list them at the same price on different days of the week and see what happened?
It seems to me that they’d also have to be sure the photographs and property descriptions were equally good. So – they’d need the same agent or agents with equal skills.
The theory suggested in one article was that when a house hits the MLS on Thursday, it instantly grabs the attention of potential buyers who are making plans and choosing the homes they want to see over the coming weekend.
Have you ever tested this theory? If so, did you see a difference?
While on the subject, do you believe there’s a “best” time of year to sell a house – or to buy a house?
Enquiring minds want to know…
