The Best Day to List a Home Is… – WSJ.com

Hard to imagine that which day you list your home for sale could make a difference but according to this data, home sellers would be wise to list their home for sale on Friday.

T.G.I.F. One day of the week can mean an extra $5,000 in a home-seller’s pocket.

Last year, homes listed on Fridays sold for 99.1% of the seller’s original asking price, the highest percentage of any day of the week, according to an analysis by real-estate brokerage Redfin.

Nailing the day that a home listing debuts is crucial, says Glenn Kelman, president and CEO of Redfin, which covers 19 markets in the U.S. “You get four times the traffic on the day of debut than any other time of the week, and you only get one chance,” he says. “Soon, you’re yesterday’s news.”
