Spring has sprung. The clocks have gone forward, the weather is brightening up, and we’ve officially hurtled our way through a quarter of the year already. If you’re thinking of selling your home then now may be the time to act and here’s why:
1) It’s hunting season for buyers
The market pace typically slows over the festive period, including the colder months of January and February. Historically, the market picks up in early spring. Buyers & sellers are over the Christmas expenses, the weather is on the turn and people dream of being in their new home for the Summer.
2) Your home is ready for it
You’ve just finished the annual ritual of spring cleaning, so why not put it to use? Your garden has never looked so good – the flowers are blooming and the leaves are back. Spring is the most beautiful season and it’s a great time for showcasing your home and luring people into new beginnings.
3) It’s convenient for you
With Winter & Christmas done, you have a brief respite before summer arrives and you (and everyone) shoots off onto their summer holidays. Spring gives you time to enjoy the process of selling your property and finding a new home, without having to worry about too many important obstacles.
4) The weather
The days are longer, the light is better and believe it or not, Spring provides the perfect light for your home which will reflect well when it comes to marketing your home. It gives the perfect backdrop to your home’s photos – blue skies, newly bloomed flowers that will increase your kerb appeal and leave a lasting first impression. If you’ve missed the mark on Spring, worry not! At Chalk Street we use professional real estate photographers to ensure that your home looks outstanding whatever time of the year.
