The Springfield residential real estate market is still going strong. So you want to give some thought on when you list your home.
According to Redfin, to sell for the most money, you should put your home on the market on a Wednesday. To sell the fastest, list on a Thursday. Avoid Sunday, which is the worst day to list.
Most real estate agents will advise you against listing your home right before a holiday weekend. This is probably true for big holidays like Christmas and Thanksgiving. But we have found the more minor holiday weekends popular for home buyers, especially for people moving to the area. Memorial Day weekend, for example, can be a very busy time for showings.
Regardless of when you list your home, you want your home to look its best and be available for showings during the first 48 hours after you list it. That's when your home is likely to generate the most interest.
Most important, as always, is your home's price. If it is in good shape and priced right, it will sell any day of the week!
We would be happy to talk about your home and neighborhood in more detail if you want more information.
