When to sell a house?

There are many factors to think of when considering when the best time is to sell your property. When you decide to list your house can often have a bearing on the speed and success of the sale.

  1. The market

It is always important to consider the current economic climate and state of the housing market when you are planning to sell. Always get professional advice on when is the most likely time that you will get the best price for your property.

  1. When it feels right for you

There are many reasons why you may feel like you wish to sell. There may be a change of circumstances and you may wish to downsize and free up some extra money, or you may simply want a change of scenery by moving to a brand-new area!

Ultimately, you must make sure you are 100% certain that selling is the right option for you. It helps to take the time to rectify any problems or make any minor improvements before putting the property on the market – a lick of paint or replacing a broken fence can go a long way towards making your house more attractive to prospective buyers.

  1. Think about the right time of year

Although there are positives and negatives to every season, there seems to be a general consensus that Spring (March-June) is the best time of year to put a house on the market. It is hoped that the weather will begin to improve, and the garden starts to prosper – often making your home look at its most appealing.

Autumn is also a good time to sell, as if the weather is still dry and pleasant your home will look attractive, and people will be looking to move with a good amount of time before Christmas approaches.

Summer is not usually a recommended time to try and get a swift sale – as people are generally busy going abroad or spending time with children over the school holidays, and Winter is equally risky due to the already hectic festive season. This being said, January could be a good month, as buyers are usually thinking about the coming year and the changes they wish to make.

  1. Other considerations

Conditions are largely specific to your situation and area. For example, you may want to check whether the council has granted any planning permission or major road works as this could impact potential interest on your property.
