Is Spring the Best Time to Sell Your Home?

is spring the best time to sell your home

There are many myths as to when the best seasonal time to sell is, but it is important to remember that each neighbourhood and each home is different. Of course, the time of year can play a significant role in the time it could take to sell your house.

Is there actually an optimum season for selling?

Based on research spring tends to always come out on top as the best time to sell. This is usually because the festive season has ended, meaning people have time to do everything they pushed back, along with the improved aesthetic of your home when the garden comes into bloom and the sun is (hopefully) out for longer.

Selling in Spring

The improved weather conditions and in-bloom gardens allows for a great opportunity to showcase your home at its very best. With hanging baskets and a garden with fresh leaves and trees giving potential buyers a great first impression. Warm weather also puts people in a better mood and gets them thinking about the future, making them more likely to get out and go property hunting.

Families with children may also use the spring to start house hunting, allowing them to tie their move in with the school summer holidays.

Putting your property on the market early to mid-spring allows you to take advantage of the increase in potential buyers during this time of the year.
