A new study by the online real estate company Zillow finds that the best time to sell a home in San Diego is the first two weeks of April.
The study released Thursday compared the best time to list a home for sale in the top metropolitan areas across the United States.
For San Diego, homes listed in the period April 1 to 15 sold 13 days faster and at a 1.3 percent premium. Saturday was identified as the ideal day to list.
A little farther north in Los Angeles, the best time to list is a Friday between April 16 and 30, with the average home selling 15 days faster at a slightly lower 1.0 percent premium.
Weather patterns affect the best window to sell in different areas. Sellers in sunny Arizona, Texas, California and Florida have more flexibility in the listing timeframe, according to Zillow.
Nationally, the best time to list is May 1 to 15, when homes sell around nine days faster and for nearly 1 percent more than the average listing.
The company said 2017 is likely to be a sellers market because of a slightly lower inventory of homes for sale.
