An article written by Tim Glaze showcased that according to Redfin homes listed midweek sell for an average of $1,700 more than homes listed on the weekend, based on homes sold above their list price from July 2020 through February 2021. And they sell faster, too.
Potential buyers may have already filled their weekend with other home tours, said Redfin Chief Economist Daryl Fairweather. That’s especially important during the pandemic when it’s more likely that buyers and their agents are required to book individual appointments to tour homes.
This means that a home listed for sale gets 100 views on its first day on the market, it would get 61 views the day after a price drop. Additionally, homes listed for sale midweek sell for an average of 1.6 days faster than homes listed on the weekend.
