The busiest time of the year for the real estate market is from now until mid June. People have made the decision to move this year and want to get moved before summer vacation or to cordinate with the end of the school year.
When listing your property it will likely take 30-60 days to get and offer. This will depend on pricing and if you price too high it may take longer. The completion and possession dates (when you actually move) will be on average another 45-90 days. The whole process can be as short as 30 days (rare) or as long as 6 months with average being in the 3-4 month range.
