The best time to sell your home in San Antonio

Early June is the best time to sell a house in San Antonio, according to a new Zillow report.

Why it matters: Sellers need all the cash they can get to make their move more palatable.

State of play: Homes listed during the first two weeks of June fetched a nearly 2% premium — good for a $5,400 boost for sellers, on the median home — over homes sold during other times of the year.

The other side: Buyers who want to avoid peak pricing should consider shopping in late December.

  • Homes listed in the last two weeks of the year sell for a 3.9% discount, which translates to $11,000 in savings on the median home.

The big picture: San Antonio mirrors the national trend of early June being the best time for sellers, a Zillow study shows.

  • The shift was largely due to mortgage rates that cooled slightly in June, bringing buyers off the sidelines.
