More competing properties can adversely affect your price. Big data tells us that in Boston, the best time to sell is between March Madness and the Master’s. Call a wise and trustworthy RE/MAX Leading Edge agent to prepare your home to get a head start,” reports Linda O’Koniewski, CEO of RE/MAX Leading Edge. “Also, we are eager to see if buyer behavior changes with the new tax plan.”
