The Best Day to List a Home Is


According to an article published in The Wall Street Journal, recent research indicates Friday is the best day of the week to list a home. Homes listed on Friday, followed closely by homes listed on Tuesday, spend fewer days on market and sell for a price closer to the list price than homes listed on any other day of the week.
Richard Ryan, a psychology professor at the University of Rochester who has studied how the day of the week affects mood, explains it this way, “Adults who have a Monday-to-Friday work week tend to be more positive and happier on Fridays, an effect that lasts through the weekend… a time when they may be more pro-active in searching for homes.”
So, what is the best day to list a home in the Dallas-Fort Worth and North Texas area?
At Ebby Halliday, REALTORS®, we believe it’s today!
Given the record low inventory of homes for sale in most Dallas-Fort Worth markets, near record-low interest rates available to potential buyers, and a historically low average days-on-market in the area, a well-priced home listed today is very likely to sell quickly and, in many sub-markets, receive multiple offers from which the seller may choose.
