Question about when is the best time to put a house on the market...

My husband and I will be selling our house the next few months and I've gotten conflicting reports on when is the best time to sell it. We live in CT so I know I shouldn't put it on the market now since it's so cold and ugly outside. Some people have told me that it should go on the market in March to catch the early spring house hunters. Other people have told me to wait till summer to catch the families trying to relocate while their kids are out of school. Our house is a 6 bedroom 1910 Victorian so it would appeal to familes as well as old house buffs. However, we live right next to an elementary school. Should I wait until school is out so prospective buyers (without children) won't be put off by the swarm of urchins next door? I'm afraid if I contact a realtor right now, they'll try to convince me to sell it asap even if it's not the best time.
Any suggestions? Thanks!
