A word from Anthony Webb

Melbourne’s real estate market typically experiences a noticeable shift with the change of season. Traditionally, autumn and spring are the preferred times of year to sell property while the weather is mild, and gardens are vibrant and full of colour.

However, after a tumultuous two years of repeated lockdowns and a heated market, the distinction between seasons is starting to blur, and we are finding there is no right or wrong time to sell your home. If you are in the position to sell your home, you should consider the current market conditions rather than the weather.

So, what can we expect from this year’s autumn market?

After an influx of new listings toward the end of February, Philip Webb Real Estate expects a busy second half to March. Campaigns in April could be affected, with Anzac Day, Easter and school holidays falling within the month. However, if a serious buyer is interested in your home, they will be there, regardless of holiday plans. Online auctions also give potential buyers more flexibility and the confidence to bid on a property remotely.
