What's the best season to buy/sell a house? (You may be surprised!)

It's the question of the day... when's the best time to buy or sell a house.  Well, logic would tell you that the best time to buy a house and the best time to sell a house would be two distinctly different times, and that would be a good general statement. 

Let's start by checking out a graph showing the number of closing each month since January 2008...

Suprisingly to most, December has been a VERY high month for the last two years.  Not so surprisingly, May through August were high months in 2008 and 2009.  Of course, a tax credit was supposed to end around the end of both years, and then ran until April 30, 2010 which may have contributed to a 'less than desirable' summer season. 

The best months vary from year to year and are certainly affected by outside influences, including government incentives, grant programs, interest rates, the overall economy, and much more.  So, if you are looking to sell, it's really when is the best time for you with your individual needs and goals in mind.  If you are looking to buy, it's finding the perfect house for your needs at a price you are comfortable with.
