The biggest wave of new homebuyers will be among millennials, who are mostly first-time buyers.
In a Harris Poll survey of 2,000 U.S. adults, more than one-fifth of Americans between ages 18 and 34 said they plan to buy a home within the next 12 months. Already, millennials make up the largest share of homebuyers at 36 percent, according to the National Association of Realtors, which released the number in March 2018.
In the Chicagoland area, the best time of year to sell a home is April and May.

Tax refunds come in late winter or early spring, making funds more available for repairs and renovations. Warmer weather and longer days mean more potential buyers are our searching for a new home.
The snow has melted, and curb appeal improves as trees and flowers bloom. Highlight your home’s best features with a standout deck, patio, porch or yard.
Additionally, a spring sale makes the timing of a closing date more ideal for buyers with school-age children. A spring sale allows kids to finish the school year just as buyers close on a home.
Despite the fact that inventory is usually at its highest in spring, prices are also at their highest too. Higher home price sales mean better comps. When there are fewer sales at other times of year, your home could get matched with a bad comparable.
Spring is not only an ideal time to sell, but also to buy! Springtime gives you the opportunity to sell your home quickly at a higher price, which can help with the purchase of your next home.
