Residential Market – East Cobb Report
2019 Data – New Listings by Month Peaks in May

The above chart looks back at 2019 to see which month had the most new listings. East Cobb’s spring market usually starts in March with May peaking as the month with the most new listings. By August, the listings start to level out and of course December has the fewest new listings of any month.

2019 Closed Sales by Month Peaks in July

Historically, the number of closed sales peaks in July. The majority of sales happen between March and September and peak again in December as buyers make one last effort to buy before the end of the year. East Cobb is a very school driven market, so many buyers want to get settled by August.

So what does all this mean for you? There is no absolute right or wrong time. Placing your home on the market in March and early April ensures you do not have as much competition with other listings. An earlier listing may be attractive to the buyers who have been looking and want to avoid getting into bidding wars later in the season. If you feel your landscaping is one of the best features of your home, then you may want to wait until April or early May to take advantage of the best curb appeal for your home.

No matter when you list… prepare your home to look it’s best. It needs to sparkle! Todays buyers insist on move in ready.
