According to a new ATTOM Data Solutions real estate study, May is the best month to sell your home.

ATTOM collected data on 14.7 million homes sold across the country from 2011-2017 to see which months had the highest return for sellers. May had the most premiums above market value more than any other time of the year nationwide.
