Your local agent can tell you how quickly they think your home will sell and based on that info you can decide when to list your home. I would not suggest setting your expections so tightly as today's market can sometimes be difficult to manuever. Talk with your agent about your motivations and how you would like to see things happen and I'm sure she will do her best to make that happen for you.
Good luck to you!

I am hoping for a local Jackson realtor to define specifically the "spring season," since I am well aware that every market is different. I will be pricing my home to sell and have realistic expectations.
My mom was a realtor for many years and I have a background in interior design and furniture so my home will be staged, clean, and uncluttered.
Unfortunately, my home selling depends on my job move next summer that is not completely solidified as of yet, however, so far it is looking that I will be moving in the early summer.
Additionally, my employer is not aware of my plans, and Jackson is a very small town so I am unable to reach out to a realtor.
Looking for some local feedback from Jackson. Thanks in advance!
Planning to close in May to August is a bold idea in the market today, I am not sure what your market there is like but homes on the market for 3-9 months is very common here and many never sell. You can figure that it will take a minimum of 45 days to close a deal and maybe another 2 weeks to do all the countering back and forth. So to close in May you need an offer in March and to close in August you need one by June. I would plan to get the house listed in February and that way it has a chance to get out and on the internet where buyers can see it.
