Speaking from the buyer perspective - I watched for ~18 months. All the time, all year long.

You get more PEOPLE LOOKING during the Jan-Feb-Mar months, but I can not connect that to more homes sold. Many of the realtors have monthly stats (but again, that is for only homes that are in the MLS (it does not include VLS or FSBO home sales).

Personally, I think the single best thing you can do is to get GOOD QUALITY PHOTOS (including drone photos of the house and surrounding areas).

I know this is a bit off topic, but I wrote in hoping this helps you.

Every month. If you are not on the market you might miss that buyer looking now.

The Market has been the same price wise for a couple of years now. The only thing that changes is the volume of homes sold. Please take a look at 2018 and 2019 Statistics

Lyle has shared some good info here, but remember: This is MLS listings only. It is 1/3 of the story. Another 1/3 are VLS and FSBO homes.

What I do find good here is the SF costs for each area / each type of house. This can HELP get you to the right asking / sales price. IF you take into account the FSBO savings in your asking /sales price, it should spark a shorter time
fro your house to be on the market.

Frankly while it is an intelligent question there is no simple intelligent answer.

You can probably look up the month in which more homes are sold.
The fact is YOU are selling ONE home to ONE buyer not at all an average statistic.

We sold our home in the north in only two weeks. We did it at the worst time of the year December for the north. We did use a broker. I'm sure you will find people who have sat on a home for a year or more. Compared to others, with whatever issues,
we had a great experience.

Selling without a broker? My OPINION, you think you will save the commission. The problem is a buyer looking at for sale by owner, is doing that THINKING they will save the commission.
The problem is obvious, both the buyer and the seller cannot save the same commission.

YOU? If a buyer comes in and wonders who was stupid enough to choose that color paint or put that tree there will you be offended as you chose that paint or you remember planting that tree with ?????????? If a buyer says they will be over at 10:00 and they show up hours late etc etc etc
