Monday, October 8 is the best day of the year to buy a home.
In a quirky new study, RealtyTrac analyzed 32 million home sales over the past 15 years then compared average sale prices to average estimated market value at the time of sale to determine whether buyers paid a premium or bought at a discount.
The number crunchers found that, out of 2.7 million sales over the last 15 years that closed in October, buyers realized an average discount of 2.6 percent below full estimated market value at the time of sale.
Following October, the best months to buy were February, July, December and January.
The worst month of the year to close on the purchase of a home is April.
The best weekday to close on the purchase of a home is Monday followed by Friday.
Thursday is the worst day of the week to buy a home.
The best day of the year to close on the purchase of a home is October 8.
The worst day of the year to close on a purchase of a home was Jan. 19.
Rocker John Bon Jovi has just purchased a pad at luxe West Village condo building, 150 Charles Street, according to city records.
In a rare move for a celebrity, the Bon Jovi frontman bought the four-bedroom, 4.5-bath apartment under his real name (John Bongiovi) and not an LLC, as many celebs and well-known figures often do.
150 Charles Street is a cozy nine-unit building near the Hudson River and Hudson River Park in the West Village.
The building also has its own private green space — more than 33,000 s/f of it, according to the website.
There’s a full staff, private covered driveway and parking, a 75 ft. lap pool, hot tub and plunge pool, gym, sauna and massage room, a children’s playroom, and a lounge with juice bar. In March, Bongiovi sold his six-bedroom penthouse at 158 Mercer Street in Soho for $34 million, two years after putting it on the market.
