Some sellers feel that if they have “missed” the spring market, they should wait until September before selling their property; but there are solid reasons for marketing your home during the summer.
Firstly, your home is likely to look its very best. Your accommodation will look light and airy, and any views from your home will be accentuated. Your garden will be in full bloom and adds real value to the purchaser’s perception of your home – they won’t just be looking at rooms! If it is a family house, children’s slide / swings etc can only make the house feel more like a home – a real hot button for the family buyer.
Longer, lighter, evenings also mean that the opportunity for positive viewings is extended, especially as partners can view together.
Serious buyers do not let holiday time, sports, etc. get in their way and they are sometimes frustrated by the reduction in choice, as other sellers mistakenly wait until this unexpected selling season has passed. Buyers with children especially may be under some pressure to secure a property before the beginning of the new school year and, as a result, they may be prepared to pay a high price in return for a swift purchase.
September is also a popular time for those moving jobs. These people will certainly be hoping to move in towards the end of the summer so they can get the move out of the way before putting all their energies into their new position.
