Start by thinking about the first of February. Generally speaking, January is a good month to rest a listing as the area is pretty dead. December is not bad though as you have visitors to the area & investors finalizing their tax strategy. You want it back on the market though as soon as the weather turns. There are plenty of balmy 70' days in February to lure buyers out & there is a tendency for them to want to find something to enjoy over the spring & summer. Do your spring cleaning early, plant some pretty early spring flowers, get it on the market & sell that puppy!
