When’s the best time to sell your house?

Posted on Tuesday, August 14, 2018

You might be holding back on putting your house on the market while economic uncertainties continue, however we at Flatmans feel like this is still a great time to go for your dream home.

The autumn, in particular, gives you a great opportunity to get your house on the market. You may have heard that the best time to sell your home is over the summer, when you can take advantage of the increasing daylight and warmth to show off your home and garden. However, this is an outdated view. Seasonal selling, like completing on a Friday, is not the only approach. 

After the summer break, it’s a great time to think about moving to a larger home, downsizing, or finding a house that fulfills your needs. Is your old house holding you back? 

Prospective buyers are also ready to start looking in earnest for their next home with the expectation of getting in there by Christmas – and you could join them!

Use the last few weeks of the summer holidays to give your house a thorough clean and declutter. Take some time to analyse the market – where do you want to live? What do you want from your new home? Perhaps a bigger garden, a garage, better transport links or a bustling community feel – only you know what suits your family best.

You may also want to look at any little jobs you could do to make your home look more welcoming to viewers. It’s always a great to tidy up the garden, front and back, while the weather is still pleasant, and you could also review any DIY jobs you may have been putting off!
