When is the best time to sell my home?
There are all sorts of myths about when is the best time to sell, but each neighbourhood and each home is different, so read on to find out when is the best time for you.
Is there an optimum season for selling?
Spring always comes out on top as the best time to sell. This is probably because people aren’t away for the summer holidays or busy with Christmas celebrations.
Another good thing about spring is that your home will look better when the garden is coming into bloom and the sun is (hopefully) out for longer.
- Summer has never been the best time to sell a home. A lot of people go away and if you’re trying to sell to families, you should remember that they’re either going to be away or having most of their time taken up by child care during the school holidays
- Autumn can be a good time to sell. If the weather’s mild your home will still look good and there are no major holidays to contend with. Make sure you’re ready to move quickly if you do find a buyer though because after October the market tends to slow right down
- Winter can be a difficult time to sell, especially before Christmas. If you’re not going to be ready to put your home on the market before December, it’s probably worth waiting until January when people are starting to think about the year ahead.
