I have been in the business over 2 decades, my largest sales record for one month was a January, so you never really know. Typically April, May & June will bring out the most inventory, but keep in mind the home of your dreams could hit the market tomorrow - seller's relocating and many other scenarios where sellers don't wait unti the 'hot' months to list. I would advise to affiliate yourself with a Realtor who you are comfortable with, knowledgable on market conditions and will move fast when it's time . Our marketing tools allows us to program your search criteria through our Multiple Listing Service so you will be notified when new listings hit the market. If it's a great deal and a special home, if you don't move fast ...you'll miss out! You know the ole saying..."when you snooze?", ouch!
