ATTOM’s newly released Best Days to Sell A Home Analysis reveals that the months of May, June and July offer seller premiums of 10 percent or more above market value, based on home sales over the past 11 years – with the top 15 best days to sell in the month of May alone.

According to ATTOM’s latest analysis of more than 46 million single family home and condo sales between 2011 and 2021, the Spring and Summer months continue to prove more profitable for home sellers. The report suggests that if you’re thinking about selling your home and motivated by a higher home seller premium, now may the time to sell.

The new analysis found that the Top Five Days with the highest home seller premiums included: May 23 (18.3 percent); May 27 (17.0 percent); May 16 (16.8 percent); May 20 (15.4 percent); and May 19 (14.9 percent).

The analysis also showed how seller premiums faired throughout the year broken out by month: May (12.6 percent); June (10.7 percent); July (10 percent); April (9.2 percent); March (8.9 percent); September (7.9 percent); February (7.9 percent); August (7.9 percent); December (6.3 percent); January (6.2 percent); November (6.1 percent); and October (5.2 percent).
