Why You Shouldn’t Try To Time the Market

Here’s why you should never try to sell at the peak of the market.

When is the best time to buy or sell your home? We get this question a lot, especially since we’re in an unprecedented market. I’m here with my handy-dandy flip chart to help demonstrate a point. It’s going to take a little bit of participation, so bear with me.

You can watch the full episode above, or you can skip to each section using the timestamps provided below:

1:24: — People can rarely time the market perfectly

2:32 — Trying to hit the peak can actually hurt you

3:24 — Prices go up over time, and prices are where they should be

4:33 — The absolute best time is your own timing

5:28 — An example of when my wife and I bought a home

At the end of the day, the best time to sell is when it works best for you. If you have questions about this or any other real estate topics, feel free to call or email me. I look forward to hearing from you!
