Every year there is an increase of inventory which comes to market from January through April as homeowners put their houses up for sale in preparation for the spring market. As an example, here is the number of listings available for sale in each of those months in 2010.
January – 3,277,000
February – 3,531,000
March – 3,626,000
April – 4,029,000
You won’t have to worry about this increasing competition if you sell now.
