REAL ESTATE INFO COLUMN: When is the best time to sell?

Welcome to my Real Estate advice column, “Dear Don,” where I answer all your burning Real Estate questions. Send yours to me at, and I’ll try to answer them in future columns.

Dear Don:

When is the best time to sell?

Anxious Anne

Dear Anne:

The best time to sell will depend on your particular situation.

Do you need to sell for a specific reason? Is it time sensitive?

For instance, have you been transferred by your work to a new city? Do you need to sell for financial reasons? Do you need the cash for another investment? Do you want to sell so that you can buy a larger place? Etc.

If you have a choice, the time to potentially sell the fastest and to make the most money is the spring market from February to May. That’s not to say that your property will sell slowly and for less money at any other time, but that you will have the greatest opportunity in the spring market. You will have more competition from other listings, but the pool of buyers will be greater this time of year.


Are you ready to take the plunge into the Real Estate market? Don’t do it alone. My mission is to help you achieve your life goals. Contact me today at 206-250-7291 or
