The Jersey Shore by Karl Hess: May and June Best Months to Sell Your Manahawkin Home

May and June Best Months to Sell Your Manahawkin Home

May June Best Month to Sell

If you’re thinking of selling your Stafford Twp Home, May and June are the best months to put your house on the market.

May of 2017 saw $13.8 million worth of homes sold in Manahawkin. June of 2017, $14.5 million worth of homes sold.

The previous year, 2016, $7.3 million worth of homes sold in Stafford Twp. In June of 2016, it was 12.5 million dollars’ worth of homes sold.

So far this month (May 15, 2018), $5.2 million dollars’ worth of homes have sold… it could be much more, but there is a severe inventory shortage.

 What’s Your Manahawkin Home Worth?

According to a newly released study by ATTOM Data Solutions, selling your home in the months of May  or June will net you an average of 5.9% above estimated market value for your home.

For the study, ATTOM performed an “analysis of 14.7 million home sales from 2011 to 2017” and found the average seller premium achieved for each month of the year. Below is a breakdown by month:

Best Month to Sell Your Manahawkin Home

ATTOM even went a step further and broke their results down by day.

Top 5 Days to Sell:

  • June 28th – 9.1% above market
  • February 15th – 9.0% above market
  • May 31st – 8.3% above market
  • May 29th – 8.2% above market
  • June 21st – 8.1% above market

It should come as no surprise that May and June dominate as the top months to sell and that 4 of the top 5 days to sell fall in those two months. The second quarter of the year (April, May, June) is referred to as the Spring Buyers Season, when competition is fierce to find a dream home, which often leads to bidding wars.

One caveat to mention though, is that when broken down by metroATTOM noticed that while warmer climates share in the overall trend, it turns out that they have different top months for sales. The best month to get the highest price in Miami, FL, for instance, was January, and Phoenix, AZ came in with November leading the charge.

If you’re thinking of selling your Manahawkin home this year, the time to list is NOW! According to the National Association of Realtors, homes sold in an average of just 30 days last month! If you list now, you’ll have a really good chance to sell in May or June, setting yourself up for getting the best price!
