If you're looking to make a change in the new year, now is the time to prepare. Deciding to sell your home is a big decision, especially during the holidays. There is a big misconception that the new year is the best time to put your home on the market but 20 years of historical data from Coldwell Banker Premier Realty tells a different story. In real numbers, 23% more homes have historically sold in December than in January and 48% more homes were listed in January than in December. This widely unknown seasonal trend proves that the holidays are the best time to sell your home.
