A Great Week to List. Home is Here.

Thinking of making a move, now may be the perfect time to start the process. Experts say the best week to list your house is around the corner.


Preparing home to list within the week.


A recent Realtor.com study looked at housing market trends over the past several years (with the exception of 2020, since it was an unusual year), and found the best week to put your house on the market this year is April 14-20:


“Every year, one week stands out from the rest as that perfect stretch of time when it’s great to be a home seller. This year, the week of April 14–20 is the best time to sell—that is, if sellers want to see lots of interest in their homes, sell quickly, and pocket some extra cash, according to Realtor.com® data.”

Here’s why this matters for you. While the spring market is a great time to sell any week, there is predicted to be a sweet spot. And if you’ve been putting plans on the back burner and waiting for the right time to act, this nudge could be one you need to make it happen.


As Hannah Jones, Senior Economic Research Analyst at Realtor.com explains:


“The third week of April brings the best combination of housing market factors for sellers. The best week offers higher buyer demand, lower competition [from other sellers], and fewer price reductions than the typical week of the year.”

Time is of the essence. Be sure to lean on the professionals. KGR is the perfect go-to when it comes to figuring out a plan to prep your house and get it on the market.


We are able to offer advice to balance the target listing date with what is needed to be done from a repair and renovation standpoint. Our team of experts will even help with prioritization. If the home happens to be in good shape, we can focus attention on small things... easy to do making a big impact.


For example, an article from Investopedia says:

“You won’t have time for any major renovations, so focus on quick repairs to address things that could deter potential buyers.”

If the property in need of assistance calls for attention outside the time frame, all is well. The window of opportunity continues to be open even when one week ends and a new season begins. Spring is peak homebuying season and sellers currently drive the market.
