What is Best Week To List Your House in the Spring? (Hint it’s almost here)

Are you thinking about making a move and listing your home for sale in Oak Island or the Southport NC area? If so, now may be the perfect time to start the process. Spring in Southport and Oak Island North Carolina is here and experts say the best week to list your house is just around the corner. Southport Oak Island Realty Group, the top producing Realtors in Oak Island NC are here to help!

A recent study looked at housing market trends over the past several years (with the exception of 2020, since it was an unusual year), and found the best week to put your house on the market for sale in Southport NC and Oak Island NC this year is April 14-20:

“Every year, one week stands out from the rest as that perfect stretch of time when it’s great to be a home seller. This year, the week of April 14–20 is the best time to sell—that is, if sellers want to see lots of interest in their homes, sell quickly, and pocket some extra cash, according to® data.”

Here’s why this matters for you as a homeowner in Oak Island or the Southport NC area. While the spring market is a great time to sell in eastern North Carolina no matter the week, this may be the peak sweet spot. And if you’ve been putting your plans on the back burner and waiting for the right time to act, this could be (hopefully) the nudge you need to make your North Carolina move happen. As Hannah Jones, Senior Economic Research Analyst at explains:

“The third week of April brings the best combination of housing market factors for sellers. The best week offers higher buyer demand, lower competition [from other sellers], and fewer price reductions than the typical week of the year.”
