SO, WHEN IS THE BEST TIME OF YEAR TO SELL?
According to our research, Spring is the best time to sell. This is because people have been researching, saving and doing life admin over the cold winter months. They are now ready to leave the house, purchase their new home and have everything exchanged well before the Christmas holidays chaos.
However, it isn’t a secret that Spring is the most popular season! Unfortunately, this can lead to an over-saturated market and less opportunity to reach a buyer if you’re property doesn’t stand out from the crowd.
With this in mind – regardless of the season, it’s crucial to make sure your home presents as good value for money compared to other similar homes up for sale at the time.
After Spring, we recommend the second best time to sell as Autumn, where the market is still busy, but a little quieter which can mean less competition for buyers. Autumn and Spring also offer the best weather to show-off your properties best features.
Those cool Autumn/Spring days allow potential buyers to both picture themselves snuggling up by the fireplace and taking a dip in the pool.
Now that you know when the best time of year to list your house for sale, make sure you also do your research and keep on-top of industry news, trends and median price reports, so you can enter the market well informed.
