The Best Time To List Your Home; QueensWay Wins Awards

NEW YORK CITY—There are different factors at play that determine how quickly a listing leads to a sale, like how it's described and what time of year it comes to market. The folks at StreetEasy have done some data crunching to determine the combination of what buzz words and when a home comes to market that will have potential buyers most flocking. For Brooklyn, February listings with descriptors like—no joke—farmer's market, exposed brick, and breakfast bar will have buyers buzzing. In Manhattan, the best time to list is in March with descriptor's like "Trader Joe's" and "corner" driving sales home. Find out when's the best time to list and what to say for the other boroughs, here. [StreetEasy]
