Everybody loves Fridays, but now with a recent report by real estate brokerage Redfin, home sellers and Realtors have another reason to declare Friday the best day of the week. It’s the best day to list a home on the market! According to the Redfin analysis, not only do homes listed on Fridays sell fastest (an average of 81 days), but listing on Friday can also mean an extra 1 percent in a home seller’s pocket!

In 2012, homes listed on Fridays sold for 99.1% of the seller’s original asking price. Compared to Sunday, the worst day of the week to list a home for sale, listing a home on Friday could mean the seller getting almost $5,000 more on a $500,000 home. Homes listed on Sunday in 2012, sold for 98.4% of the seller’s original asking price.

“Nailing the day that a home listing debuts is crucial,” says Glenn Kelman, President and CEO of Redfin. “You get four times the traffic on the day of debut than any other time of the week, and you only get one chance. Soon, you’re yesterday’s news.”

So, what makes Friday so special? Most adults work a normal work week from Monday to Friday and therefore tend to be happier, more relaxed, and more optimistic on Fridays. Experts believe that with people being in a good mood as they look forward to the weekend, they have more energy to be proactive in searching for homes.
