Buyers, however should be looking with great intensity immediately following New Years day up to the sixth full moon of the year.
Both of these are as relevant as the superbowl.
I personally have 5 pre-approved buyers ready to buy homes today, and 2 all-cash buyers.
So I can tell you that qualified buyers are out looking now, and few of them care about the SuperBowl when it comes to choosing a home. It's more likely to be sellers who want to wait til after the SuperBowl so sell!
Some things to consider and discuss with your realtor: 1. Where are you moving / is that home ready? 2. Is your home ready to list on the market now / this week, or are there pre-sale activities that need to happen so it won't be ready for a few weeks anyway? 3. How many other homes are on the market today, that compete with your home? 4. What has activity been like on similarly priced homes in your market? Are there multiple offers, so there are multiple buyers looking right now?
Good luck in deciding your best strategy.
