On the “Homes for Sale in San Francisco” front, here’s our report for this week, 2/21/15 – 2/27/15:
Timing the housing market is not an easy thing to do. You may be asking yourself, is this the right time to sell my place? Financial columnist Nicole Goodkind says sell only when you need to sell – but adds, if you’re going to sell, this may be the best time of year to do so.
Home sales reach their peak in late June, but in order to be in the thick of that you need to start planning now. You’ll want to list your house by mid-March at the latest, because nationwide homes sold from March to mid-April sell 15% faster and for 2% more than the average listing.
Bringing a home to market can take some time, for staging and photography and such. So if you’re thinking about selling your home in the spring, now is the time to get started.
