When is the best time to sell?

This is a question that we are asked regularly here at my house realty and the answer may surprise you.

Along with the many other considerations you’ll have to make when selling you property, the time in which your property goes to market is a very important one. We are often asked if local events, public holidays, holidays (Christmas and Easter) or even tax time have any effect on the market and if these times should be avoided when launching a property for sale. But, by far the most asked question in regard to selling is if the season has an impact on the sale.

These are all valid questions and all should be taken into consideration when selling your property. Local events, holidays and the weather may have an effect on the number of people through your open inspections for obvious reasons and your agent will talk you through strategies to counteract this. There is also the argument that property looks better in spring, compared to the middle of winter. But this may only be true is you have a specific type and style of garden. 

So, what is our response to these questions? Simply, it doesn’t matter! The best time to sell is when you are ready. Human factor like a growing family, starting a new job, retiring are all far more important than if it’s Spring or Winter. 
With over 15 years of helping people sell one thing is clear to me, if people genuinely want to buy property… they will.
