When is the best time of year to sell your Miami home? 

For home owners in: Coconut Grove, Coral Gables, South Miami and Pinecrest.

Having extensively worked the single family markets for over a decade, I can firmly say that I have recognized trends and behaviors. This is honestly what separates a really good agent from a bad one. Knowing a market does not just mean knowing what houses are truly worth, it means reading the trends and behaviors to be able to make useful predictions, to help your clients act at the right time; not just for buying, but for selling too!

So with this in mind, and given we are a dominant player in the ‘listing side’ of the business – yes, we are well regarded as ‘expert listing agents‘ rather than just being ‘buyers agents‘, we wanted to share with our readers some very useful advice on when to list your home. 

This specifically is for home owners in the single family home markets that are focused around the best private schools: Coconut Grove, Coral Gables, South Miami and Pinecrest.

When is the best time of year to sell your Miami home?

Every year we deal with many relocations and every year in March the dominant private schools of: Ransom, Carrollton, St Stephens (Coconut Grove) Gulliver, Palmer Trinity, (Pinecrest) St Thomas, St Philips, St Teresa, Riviera (Coral Gables) announce the next batch of kids accepted to the school. 

As soon as this happens parents sitting on the fence waiting are suddenly pushed into overdrive and go on the house hunt, full boar with all guns blazing. They are either moving or upgrading from existing homes and they want to be settled before the summer holidays start and everyone goes away until the end of August. That gives them from March to July to get a place.

Given the 45-60 day closing cycle for a transaction, a home needs to be in contract between March and May. This is why every year I see the highest level of business in March.

Don’t believe me? Well, look at the table below that shows the peak transactions per year across these markets. We took all these neighborhoods separately and overlaid them year on year for the last 5 years. 

When is the best time of year to sell your Miami home? 

As you can see, most properties close between April and July and with on average 1 to 2 months of closing time, buyers are most active between March and May

We have only superlatives to describe how wonderful Cris Buzolin was throughout the process of selling our townhouse in Coral Gables. We were away in the UK while the transaction was taking place and Cris handled everything-from clearing out our house, selling contents when she could, arranging the moving and storage and dealing with some very difficult problems which arose. Always patient and very willing to help in every way, Cris is a consummate professional who really cares about her clients and worked extremely hard to get the price we had asked for and make things for us as easy as she could. Nothing was too much for her to handle.Cris and Marianela (who provided additional very helpful assistance to us during the transaction) are part of the team that David Siddons has assembled.When we decided to sell our property, we contacted David and he established the framework for the transaction and ensured that everything proceeded smoothly and in accordance with our wishes. In sum, David Siddons and his team are extremely competent and professional and we are totally satisfied with the service they provided. To repeat, Cris Buzolin in particular, went way beyond what one would expect from a real estate agent. The David Siddons Group has our highest recommendation!

Fantastic group of people to work with!! David and Adriana were responsive and professional throughout the entire process. We weren't familiar with South Florida so David took us under his wing and did a fabulous job giving us a tour of select neighborhoods in South Florida and shared a great deal of information about each. We fell in love with the Botaniko community in Weston and closed the deal with Adriana. If you are buying/selling this is the team you want to work with!! Thank you guys for helping us find our dream home.
