Customers ask us all the time, “What’s the best time of year to put a house on the market?” There is no easy answer to this question, but here’s what we know. First, statistically, a listing going active in the early spring tends to get closer to list price in a shorter period of time. With that being said, we sell houses 12 months a year. There are more listings available in the spring, but there tends to be more buyers too. As we close out a year, we tend to “run out” of “fresh” inventory, and as a result, listings tend to languish longer because they are not fresh.
So the answer to the question is simple, pick up the phone, give us a call, and let’s discuss YOUR goals. Your property is unique to you and the market, don’t let generalities guide your decisions, let’s look for answers that make sense for you!
DENVER MLS for the Week of 9/10/18

Price Decrease (1428) WOW, This is a big number!

As you can see above, it was a week with little excitement. One of those 1,653 was ours, one of those 1,236 was ours and one of those 1,463 was ours. We are constantly “in the market”. Don’t hesitate to contact us. It’s a lovely day in the neighborhood!
