When you sell your home, you want it to sell quickly and profitably. And if selling quickly and profitably is the goal, now is definitely a great time to sell.
According to data from the National Association of REALTORS®, in April 2021, a whopping 88 percent of homes in the United States were on the market for less than a month. On average, homes stayed on the market for just 17 days—down from 27 days in April 2020. And not only are homes selling incredibly fast—they’re also selling for incredibly high prices. In April 2021, the median existing-home price in the US hit $341,600. That’s a 19.1 percent increase from April 2020—and the highest median home price on record.
So, what does this mean for you? Homes are selling faster and at a higher premium than ever before—so if you’ve been thinking about selling your home, now is a great time to make a move.
