The Best Times to Buy a House in Pennsylvania and New Jersey

Online real estate maven Trulia has released an interactive map documenting the most and least popular times of year to buy homes across the country. Pennsylvania’s three most popular months? April, March, and July. In Jersey, July, April, and June make up the top three. More broadly, Pennsylvania’s peak months are March-May, while New Jersey’s (outlier alert) are June-August. One possible explanation (provided by me, not Trulia): people in Jersey like to conduct home searches while relaxing on the Shore. Hence the July crush. Photo of map below, interactive map here.
