Good Question: What’s The Best Time Of Year To Sell A Home?

MOST WATCHED STATION.

THIS IS WCCO4 NEWS.

WELL, EXPERTS SAY THE SPRING HOUSING SEASON IS OFF TO A SLOW START.

THE NUMBER OF HOMES FOR SALE IS DOWN IN THE TWIN CITIES AND OTHER MARKETS AS WELL.

AND THAT GOT US WONDERING IS THERE AN IDEAL TIME TO SELL YOUR HOME? YEAH, THERE IS.

TYPICALLY PEOPLE THINKING ABOUT SELLING THEIR HOMES ARE ALSO THINKING ABOUT THOSE WARM WEATHER MONTHS WHEN THEY WANT TO DO IT BUT EVEN THEN THERE'S A 2 WEEK PERIOD WHERE PEOPLE FEEL YOU GET THE BIGGEST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK.

THE THEORY IS THE WARM WEATHER MEANS MORE PEOPLE OUT AND ABOUT, WHICH IN TURN MEANS MORE HOME SALES.

THE SUN IS THE BEST REAL ESTATE AGENT YOU CAN FIND.

BUT THE NUMBER OF HOMES BUILT IS WAY DOWN.

WE ARE DOWN IN THE 12,000 AREA RIGHT NOW, ABOUT HALF OF WHAT YOU WOULD EXPECT TO SEE.

WITH FEWER OPTIONS IT'S A SELLER'S MARKET.

BUT THE VERY BEST TIME TO SELL YOUR HOME IS BETWEEN MAY 1 AND MAY 15.

THEIR STUDY SHOWS THAT ON AVERAGE ACROSS THE COUNTRY HOMES SOLD DURING THAT 2 WEEK PERIOD SOLD ABOUT 18 DAYS FASTER THAN HOMES OUTSIDE THAT PERIOD AND THEY ALSO SOLD ABOUT 1% MORE THAN THE AVERAGELISTING.

THIS IS THE TIME WHEN THINGS START TO PICK UP.

THE HEAD OF REAL ESTATE PROGRAMS AT THE UNIVERSITY.

HE SAID SPRING IS A GOOD TIME TO SELL BUT IN MINNESOTA JUNE SALES HAVE BEEN BETTER.

JUNE SEEMS TO BE WHEN WE HAVE THE MOST HOMES THAT GET SOLD.

SAID JUNE IS ALSO WHEN MINNESOTA HOMES SPEND THE FEWEST DAYS ON THE MARKET.

YOU CAN'T GO WRONG IN JUNE, NO.

IT'S A GOOD TIME TO BE ASELLER.

OF COURSE THIS VARIES BASED ON WHERE YOU LIVE.

IN THE SOUTH WITH WARMER WEATHER SALES REALLY HEAT UP IN FEBRUARY AND MARCH.

BOTTOM LINE, IF YOU REALLY WANT TO SELL YOUR HOME OR BUY, YOU CAN MAKE ANY TIME OF THE YEAR WORK IF YOU THINK ABOUT IT.

WE JUST WANT TO SEE A FEW MORE FOR SALE SIGNS.

THE SNOW IS ALMOST ALWAYS GONE BY JUNE.

USUALLY.

YOU CAN MOVE AND GET IT DONE BY LABOR DAY.

THANKS, JOHN.

The Best Time of Year to Rent an Apartment

What is the best timeof year to find tenants for your rental property? That's today's video.

Let's dive in.

Hey, everyone.

I'm Clayton Morris.

I'm the founderof Morris Invest, and I'm a longtimereal estate investor.

Today I want to talk to youabout the best time of year to find tenants foryour rental property.

Now you think the winterwould be a bad time to find tenants for yourrental property, right? We get that question a lot.

Well, should I be concernedin February or March about getting tenantsfor my property if it's so cold outside? Will people want togo out in the snow to come and see your property? Is August a better time? Is the summertime a better time? The answer is frankly,it doesn't much matter.

Obviously, the holidays could bea little bit of a slow period.

Right around Christmas,people aren't going to want to moveand pack up boxes right during the holidays.

However, right after theholidays, and right before tax time is the besttime to find tenants for your rental properties.

Why? Think about it for a second.

Why would that be? Why would that be? Well, refund checks–refund checks– if that's what you said,then you're absolutely right.

And what we find happens is thatmany people want to front load the amount of rent they can puttowards their rental property.

So a new tenant wants tomove into the property, loves the property,and they know they're in competitionwith another tenant.

This is what happenson our properties we get into– I don'twant to say bidding wars– but we really can take the creamof the crop on our properties.

So the person that'sable to put up five months, sixmonths worth of rent and to move into thisproperty, chances are, they'reprobably going to get picked to rent the property.

And why can they do that? Because the tax man– sothey're going to get money back from the government,typically, and they're going to get a big nicecheck from the government.

And rather than spendingthat money on things they don't need, theywant to front load the amount they canput down on their rent.

And very often, we'll gettenants in March, and April, and frankly, February,because people want to do their taxes earlyso they can get those refund checks– they will put downfive, six, seven, months.

We actually had someone paytheir whole year's rent in one fell swoop thanks totheir refund check.

So the springtimecan be a great time, and the winter timeright after Christmas can be a fantastictime to get tenants into your rental properties.

So don't fear the winter.

Old man winter isnothing to fear when it comes to rental properties.
