Is now the right time to sell your home?
There is no exact science in the best time to sell but spring is a strong contender.
The weather is pleasant, gardens are coming into bloom and the optimism of new life fills the air. Longer days with light evenings allow for more flexible viewings and buyers are tempted outside ready to visit new areas.
Good natural light helps photography, makes interiors appear bright and airy, and lifts exterior views to their very best. The better weather motivates buyers keen to find their dream property before summer comes along and the family focus switches to holidays.
The latest figures show the performance of the property market has been remarkable.
Traditionally this is the busiest time of the year and this year is busier than usual with buyer demand up 34% since this time last year. In fact, we have a flourishing market with the strongest spring sellers’ market in a decade. Furthermore, the East Midlands saw asking prices up 2.7% in March, which is the biggest increase of all the regions.
In our view, it is a very favourable time to showcase your property with buyers continuing to flock the market, hoping take advantage of the temporary reduction in Stamp Duty Land Tax to the end of June.
If you’re looking to go on the market, we will be delighted to guide you through the whole selling process, from providing the best marketing and presentation, to helping you and your buyer navigate the legal process to a successful sale.
