If you’re thinking about selling your home, but waiting until summer, here is a little tip on why you may want consider acting faster.

Appraisers look back one year for comparables in order to capture value for current day housing. If prices were the highest in June of 2022, appraisers can use those values until June of 2023. Now is the time to capture those peak values. It is also a sweet spot in timing, for families making decisions about private schools in the fall.
