Buying or Selling a Home/When to put your house on the market?

Question
We are hoping to move across country in October 2014. When should we put our house on the market? We live in central Connecticut.
Thank you.

Answer
Hard question, probably depends on the market in your particular area. Here in South Florida, a good house in a good neighborhood that is fairly priced sells quickly, maybe 90 days at most to closing.
Ask around, find the average days on market for Conn., clean and fix the place up, and list it for sale. Keep in mind many people want to be in their new home for school year start.
Best of luck,
Ted
