While the timing of listing your home for sale should be determined with your Realtor based upon the right solution for your unique circumstances, we do have some national data that simply can’t be ignored.
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. This is according to Redfin that analyzed a sample of 100,000 homes that sold in 2017 and reviewed the results.
Because homes listed on Sunday perform the worst, they used Sunday as a baseline to compare how much better homes do when listed on the other days of the week.
Homes listed on Wednesday had an advantage of $2,023 in sale price over homes listed on a Sunday, a sale-to-list premium of 0.53 percent. For a $500,000 house, that means you could make $2,650 more just by listing on a Wednesday instead of a Sunday.
For speed, Thursday had a clear advantage, with Thursday-listed homes finding buyers five days faster than the baseline. Homes listed on Thursday also had the edge as far as being more likely to be sold within 90 and 180 days.
