Why Summer is one of the best times to sell your house

Summer is not just the most pleasant time of year for people who enjoy warmer weather; it may be the best time to sell your property!

There used to be a number of barriers which would impact on the ease of selling a home in summer, but new technologies and the changing nature of life means that these previous impediments are no longer as important.

So, while the property market has long held that spring is the best time of year to sell your property, there is a growing realisation that summer is an optimum time of year to promote your home and attract the interest of potential buyers.

So, why is summer one of the best times to sell your house?

Improved weather.

The thought of moving boxes and belongings on a warm sunny morning is a lot more enticing than carrying out the same move on a damp autumn day, so this is a factor why the summer is a good time to place your property on the market.

Daylight savings time might also play a part in why the warmer months stimulate buying activity. By getting more exposure for your listing through more traffic, you increase the chances to receive more offers.

Moving before the new school term.

Many potential buyers will be keen to have their family settled in a new home before the new school term. Summer is the last opportunity to ensure this happens, so you can see why many potential buyers will be motivated to conclude a property purchase before the end of summer, which is of benefit to people looking to sell their home quickly and effectively.

Your home is looking its best.

If you have a garden area, you should be able to make a positive first impression on any potential buyer. Spending some time in your garden, or hiring a professional to do so, can impress buyers before they even step foot inside your home, and this can be a big factor in ensuring you experience a high level of demand for your property.
