When is the right time to sell a house

For property sellers who want a seamless and fast house sale, it’s only natural to wonder, ‘when is the best time to sell a house?’ Is there really a magical month or season where property sales rise? And does it really matter?

The best time to sell a house

Spring is all about new beginnings, and it’s also the most popular time to sell a home.

It’s thought that people are refreshed from their Christmas holidays and New Year celebrations. They have usually used the holiday period to find their perfect home online during the cold months of December, January and February. By the time March arrives, they’ve viewed many homes online, so they know what they want. They’re ready to complete their house sale in Spring!

Increased sales in Spring may be because properties look their best in the springtime! They have better curb appeal due to the green grass, freshly mowed lawns and blooming flowers. There’s also plenty of good light, and mild weather means that buyers are more prepared to go house hunting.

Should you wait until spring to sell a house?

If you’re thinking about selling your home and Spring is around the corner it could be worth waiting. Selling your home during the Spring season means that you will have plenty of people looking at the housing market and that time is on your side. Starting the sales process in Spring means you will be able to hold out for the best offer, which might mean getting the best asking price.

Considering it takes an average of 3-4 months to sell in the UK, selling a house in Springs means that by the time the sale is complete, you will be moving into your new home by the Summer. This means you can enjoy the best daylight and longer days to enjoy your garden, which will soon be coming into full bloom.

However, there are a lot of different elements to consider when it comes to selling a house. Realistically, people are buying all year round and there’s no guarantee of a buyer who will pay more or a faster sale if you decide to wait.

There’s also market value to think about, schools and of course, how much you want to move!
