Chart of the Day When is the best time of the year to buy or sell a home? Today's Chart of the Day answers that question plus demonstrates that timing your home purchase or sale could save you a significant amount of money. To create today's chart, we compared each month's 1990-present 'national' average selling price to the entire 1990-present average to determine if home prices carried a premium or discount for any given month. As the chart shows, home buyers were willing to pay a significant premium during the summer when the weather was generally good and the kids were out of school.
Notes: - Calculations based on inflation-adjusted median selling prices for US single-family homes. - Are we in a housing bubble? Find out with the exclusive charts of Chart of the Day Plus.
