Ask the REALTOR® is a regular video series in which I answer your most commonly-asked real estate questions, with a new Q&A posting every week. If YOU have a real estate question for me, drop me a note here.

This week’s question: Is there a best time to sell my house? Here’s the answer in this brief video, and don’t miss the transcript below.


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.
