Selling an investment property can be a complex decision, especially considering the unpredictable economic environment of today. And while there’s no magic formula for determining the best time to sell an investment, there are several factors you should consider.

The wrong time to sell
This likely won’t come as a big surprise: you should avoid selling your any type of property during the winter holiday season. Tensions run high during the holidays and budgets run low. The result? Less people looking and offers that come in low. So, as a general rule of thumb, avoid the months of December and January when selling any type of property.

The best season for selling
Unlike traditional real estate, there is not one season that is best for the buying and selling of investment properties. With the exception of the holidays, investors are always looking for the right property at the right price.

The best day for selling
According to research, Thursday is the best day of the week to list a property for sale. By listing a property for sale on a Thursday, it becomes available for weekend showings- which can be important for that “weekend investor.”
