June may be known for weddings, but it is also the best month to sell a home in the Orlando MSA, according to a new ATTOM Data Solutions analysis of area sales from 2011 to 2017. The numbers show that homeowners who sold their homes in June enjoyed the biggest premiums above estimated market value — a median of 1.5 percent — than any other month.
