Should I Wait Until Spring to List My Home? – Seattle Edition

Over on the national blog, we just posted another big analysis of hundreds of thousands of listings and sales. Here are the numbers for Seattle, where winter is still a winning time to list your home for a quick sale, a better chance of selling, and a better price:

  • Seattle Allen

    Winter is the best season for the sellers.

  • pounce

    List it as soon as possible; prices might be down another 10% by summer.

  • Thomas Gamble

    Thank you for this blog. Thats all I can say. You most definitely have made this blog into something thats eye opening and important!

    Prices/values will be depressed even further. Pounce is correct – 10% is the target for this summer.

    I just ran a spectral analysis on the NMLS median king county home prices (1/1993-2/2012), and indeed there is a significant annual cycle in home prices.  Price (opposed to sale: list ratios) is probably the most important thing to sellers, so it may still be best to list in spring.

    This analysis is really need to be appreciated. I also think that it is a better chance for me to sell out.
