Why List on Thursdays?

Updated: Oct 19, 2023

Originally in my career, I didn't use to target a specific day of the week to list. Later, my dad suggested that all agents in our company list on Thursdays. My dad's opinion is important since he's sold likely over 5k homes, more than 20 times the volume of most agents in their careers & possibly more than any agent in SE VA alive. Now that I know that Thursdays are the way to go, I'm not going back.

Here are the main reasons why Thursdays are best, per Redfin data:

Entered into MLS on Thursdays, Not Just Listed on Thursdays

Listings Not Possible to be Listed on 2/3 Worst Days to List at Many Brokerages

Thursday Listings Optimize a Saturday Open House

Thursday Listings Give Time to Buyers Looking to Come in Town

Thursday Listings Optimize Tuesday Deadlines & Diverse Work Schedules

Tuesday Deadlines Reduce the Chances that Sellers & Buyers Will Need to Extend Inspection Deadlines
