One of the biggest stresses of selling your house is the fear that it will take forever to sell. According to Yahoo Finance There are so many factors that will affect how quickly it goes and how much you’ll make–and apparently one of those things is when exactly you decide to put it up for sale. There’s a new report that reveals the best time of the year and day of the week to list your home to get a fast and profitable sale.

According to the report by Zillow, if you want to optimize your home selling outcome, your best bet is to list it between May 1st through 15th, because homes put on the market during that period tend to get snapped up nine days faster and for at least 1% more than the listing price. In fact, late spring, either April or May, is the best time to sell a house in 20 of the 25 largest metro areas in the country.

And believe it or not, the day of the week that you list a house can also be a factor in how fast you sell and how much money you get. According to Zillow, listings that turn up on a Saturday get about 20% more views in the first week than those listed in the earlier part of the week. In addition, a listing that appears on a Friday will get 14% more views than those listed on a Monday.
