When you put your house on the market can impact how long it takes to find a buyer and the price you achieve. Selling at a good time will give you the best chance of achieving the best price in the shortest time.
Spring is widely regarded as the best time to sell your property because of a few different reasons.
Winter is over!
The winter months typically take a little longer to sell a house, for obvious reasons.
Spring signifies a fresh start and this is great motivation for people that have been thinking about buying a property for some time.
At this time of year, buyers are out and about taking advantage of the nice weather that usually comes along with spring. Buyers will start looking at properties outside their immediate area.
More potential buyers
Many people will start to consider their new home options once the new year has come.
This means estate agents start to fill their books with people looking to buy in specific locations, marketing your house in the spring takes advantage of these potential buyers.
Is your house near a school?
With the average home sale taking around 8 weeks if you purchase your property in spring there is a good chance you will be in before the end of the school year.
For buyers with young families, this may be particularly important because of the regulations around catchment areas and school places.
