Hi, this is Cari McGee with Keller Williams Realty. Welcome to this week’s episode of “Ask the Realtor.” Every week, I answer questions from buyers, and sellers, and pretty much everyone in between regarding real estate.

This week’s question is, “Cari, is there a best time to sell my house?”

Not really. Not here in the Tri-Cities. We are buying and selling all year long. There does seem to be a slight uptick in between May and October, but that’s not a hard and fast rule. For example, in 2017 — May of 2017, there were 392 houses that were sold. And then, in October, there were 385. But then, there were 395 in December.

So again, it’s when somebody’s ready to buy and when somebody’s ready to sell, and that’s the best thing to do. So list your house. Don’t try to guess it out by watching the calendar. List your house when it’s right for you to do so, and I promise you the buyer will be there.

Thanks so much for watching. If you have any more questions for me regarding real estate, by all means, give me a shout via any one of the methods that follow on the next screen. Bye-bye.

Cari McGee

My husband and I came to the Tri-Cities in 1994, and we thought it would be a temporary stop on our way to larger cities. He was a television sports anchor at the time, and we planned to go wherever the "next step up" took us. Twenty-plus years later, we're still here and we've loved every minute of it! We have two children now, and we've found the Tri-Cities area is a wonderful place to raise a family. It's a great place to do outdoorsy things -- I like to hike Badger Mountain or run along the river path. I also love reading ... by a cozy fire in the winter or a beautiful picture window in the summer (with the A/C on!). I've been a licensed Realtor since 2004. I earned my managing broker's license in 2016, which means I can run my own brokerage, or create a team of real estate agents and supervise them. I became a director of the Tri-Cities Association of Realtors Board of Directors in 2016. I am on the Budget and Finance Committee there, as well. I love serving the citizens of this community, and my fellow Realtors, too. Want to talk about real estate? Click here to schedule a meeting with me!
