When Should You Sell Your Home?
What is the best time to sell your home? Should you sell now? Is there a specific time that is better for selling your home?
The simple answer is that in today’s s market, you don’t need to wait until there’s a ‘good time’. After all, the best time to sell your property is when you’re ready to move and there are people looking to buy. Spring is typically the best time to sell – families want to move before the new school year, the days are longer and your home will be seen in the best light.
Historical data has shown that there are several quiet months – December and January – during the year when fewer properties are bought. During these periods there tends to be a smaller pool of buyers and as a result competition for property is lower giving buyers more bargaining power. During the winter, sellers and buyers tend to be focusing on Christmas and viewing a property when the weather is poor can put people off house hunting.
In August many people, particularly families, are away on holiday and the market slows down again. However, July is a great month to buy and sell so we have many registered buyers lined up for you.
Once you decide to sell, you’ll most likely want to sell your property within 4-6 weeks. Selling a property takes a good deal of planning so it’s important that you take some time first to make sure you have your home looking its best. That doesn’t mean spending thousands of pounds renovating your home, just to fix the little details that could put off buyers or enable them to negotiate the price down.
By instructing your property sale now, you can ensure that you will be reaching the right buyers at the right time.
If you have seen somewhere you would like to buy you could be settled into your new home by the start of the new school year.
