House Hunt: See Why Fridays are the Best Day to List Your Home for Sale

A Wall Street Journal report says a home that is first listed on a Sunday will likely not be seen until the following weekend. See nearly $12 million home on Jett Ferry Road in Sandy Springs.

 

Sundays may be an ideal day for buyers to visit open houses but it’s the worst day to debut home listings, a Wall Street Journal report said.

Friday is the best and most profitable day to list your home and guess why. It’s a happy day for prospective buyers. Richard Ryan, professor of psychology at the University of Rochester, told the WSJ that because people are happier on Friday, they tend to make a more proactive decision when they see a home they like. Whereas a home that is first listed on a Sunday will likely not be seen until the following weekend. 

Redfin real estate CEO Glenn Kelman told the WSJ that homes listed on Fridays vs. Sundays can mean a difference of $5,000 for the seller.

Tuesdays are also goods days for home sellers. Buyers start planning home tours early in the weekend.
