But traditionally in this area, summer is the best time. You have the added interest that the tourist bring in. So prices go up in the Summer vs. say later on in the year.
It is my experience that the "hot" market time runs from October through April, but honestly, I have had consistent business year round. Fort Lauderdale is a desirable location for northerners who are relocating and international buyers seeking second homes.
I see this post was made a while ago, but if you have not sold your home as of this date, please allow me to answer any further questions you may have.

I just sold a home on the water for 1,122,500 in Harbor Beach (10/29/2013) that was 80 feet on the water. Inventory is shallow right now and with that we have seller's market that force buyers to pay more. I live in area code 33316, Lauderdale Harbors, I would welcome the opportunity to speak with you concerning how to best position your property to sell for the best possible price in least amount of time. KINDLY CALL ME @ 954-557-3416.

Something to remember about our market is that many of our part-time residents that are considering selling will put their property on the market only while they are there to participate. This is one of the reasons why our inventory of homes for sale during our winter months increases greatly. With this said, listing prior to of after the "peak season" although perceived by most as a less opportune time can in reality be a time in which your home could get greater attention because of less competition.
Food for thought....

You never know. Right now there are more buyers and fewer properties which makeâ€™s it easier to sell but giving you a time limit on a property that we havenâ€™t seen and not knowing the price that you would like to market it for, its impossible to estimate.
Here are some recent sales in Harbor beach:
2536 LUCILLE DR, B- 6, Year: 2007 $5,500,000 $4,410,000
30 ISLA BAHIA DR, B- 6, Year: 2007 $5,495,000 $5,100,000

In general, unlike condos., single homes do not have a "season", as far as selling.
However, families with school attending kids prefer to have the kids finish the present school year before moving to a new area/school district....

Harbor Beach is a sought after neighborhood so the interest is there. The condition, price and availability will help decide how quickly your home sells. Also, real estate slows from Thanksgiving until January/ February. The sooner you list it, the better.

The good news is the east Fort Lauderdale real estate market has turned the corner from being a buyer's market to a seller's market, where the number of homes for sale is not sufficient to meet demand With that said, you have more control over how quickly you home sells.
Check out a recent blog post I wrote on this topic: http://luxurylivingfortlauderdale.com/shortage-of-fort-laude
Naturally a home priced aggressively (slightly below market value) will sell quickly. The challenge is to price your home appropriately and apply a unique marketing plan to bring the right buyers.
As a leading luxury Realtor in east Fort Lauderdale, I have a proven track record of selling homes like yours that yield happy sellers and happy buyers. I would be honored to have the opportunity to share my services, experience and professional advice with you. Please contact me.

Actually right now there is such a low amount of inventory in all three South Florida counties, that it is becomming a seller's market rather quickly. Homes that are not short sales or foreclosures, and that are priced right for the market, based on relevant properties in their area, are actually getting in some cases, multiple offers on their homes, in relatively short amounts of time of being listed.
My recommendation would be to get a market analysis done on your home, then, based on comparables, price it right to get it sold for the best price in the shortest amount of time possible for you. I would be more than happy to help you get started if you haven't already begun working with another agent.
And of course, I can always help with your move out of state because of our vast networking with agents throughout the world.
Best of luck with whatever you decide and I hope to hear from you soon!
According to your profile, you've been inquiring about purchasing a home in Deerfiedl Beach, FL, Serenbe, Ga and Greenville, SC (quite a large geographical area) since February 2012. Have you finally decided where you will settle?
The best time to sell any houses - your house - anywhere is always now and procrastinating won't make any difference. When you are ready to make the commitment to sell, it will be just as good a right time to sell your as any other times BUT, as everyone else hereon stated, your house will have to be priced just right in harmony with the comparables.
in order to give you the right answer I would have to know more about your home. Selling a home has not much to do with season. It depends on location (you are in a great one), the home's condition, size and features AND the price. With a Realtor that evalutes your home right, guides the seller right and does good marketing your home can be under contract quickly. If you plan on moving in Spring you should get the house ready for the market. A longer closing time can often be arranged with the buyer or a rent back until you ready to leave.
I would be happy to talk about more details if you wish.

Thank you for your inquiry.
If your Harbor Beach home was priced well, you could expect a reasonably quick sale. On the same token, you can list your home with a long close clause, letting the buyers know that you would not close until the Spring. With this option, you would know that you have a contract and can move when you want to.
I would love to chat with you to go over your options.
We are getting close to our "season" in Florida and it is always a good time to sell.
I will happily set up an appointment time to suit your needs to discuss the sale. I look forward to hearing from you

Ask your Fort Lauderdale real estate agent to present you with the comparable home sales in the area for the last 90 days. If you list your home in Harbor Beach somewhere within the average of those prices, buyers are likely to want to see your home and arealso likely to make reasonable offers.
When you sell your Fort Lauderdale home you should expect to concede a small percentage on price. After all, buyers want to feel that they got a good deal on their new home, and a price concession, even it is only a percentage point or two, goes a long way toward making a buyer happy.
However, if you price your home 15-20% over market, for example -- because you know that buyers will always offer less -- you may find that buyers stay away because they will assume that you are not really ready to sell. Today, on average, seller concessions are running 5% or under on homes that are priced correctly.
If you have very little or no traffic within the first two weeks of your listing, chances are good that your home is overpriced.

Depending on the specifics, highlights, age and price of the home, the range of time for a sale could be
anywhere from 3 months to nine.
I would not be too concerned about having to move in the middle of the holiday season as closing dates are always negotiable.
Email me at email@example.com and send me a phone number and a time and I will gladly discuss further. Looking forward to hearing from you,

Home sales are moving briskly and if the home is priced right, in the right location, the right buyer will come in and make a offer. There is no expected timeframe to say how long it will take to move your home, it can take a few days, a few weeks, or even longer. There are buyers out there in the market now and homes are being put onto the market everyday. I understand your concern to not to move in the middle of the holiday season, but a lot of people make offers during the holiday season, especially if the home has that warm cozy feeling and they can visualize themselves ot their own family there in that home. If you need anything or any other questions please feel free to contact me.
