The best month for you to put your NYC condo for sale is now and/or when you are ready to sell. Although there are some times of the year that are busier than others as far as the sheer volume of sales go, there is never a bad time to place your property on the market. During the slow times there are less buyers looking but there are also far less homes for sale. Hence the buyers that are out there during the slower months tend to be more serious and motivated. Those types of buyers are quality buyers. I would dare to say that you have more quality buyers looking in the slow times as opposed to the busy times.
In the end, it all balances out. Aside from that, we always know where the market is today, right now. Tomorrow is uncertain, things can get a lot better or worse in a heartbeat. If you are a gambling individual, you may want to wait thinking you can sell for a higher price at another time, but in the end there is no guarantee.
I would suggest that you have several real estate agents that work in your area meet with you, view your home and then have them share their thoughts with you as to how the market as a whole is performing right now and how much your condo would be worth today. Then you can make the best decision for yourself from there. If I can be of further assistance, please contact me direct. Good luck!
