Three reasons why autumn is the best time to sell

Three reasons why autumn is the best time to sell

Spring is widely considered to be the best time to sell property. With warmer weather, flowers in full bloom and homes looking their best, is it any wonder? But autumn presents an equally strong selling opportunity. Here’s why:

1. Active buyers

After the Christmas/New Year period, prospective buyers begin to return to the market as new properties become available. They’re prepared and ready to go, having used the holidays to research the market and organise their finance.

2. Less competition between vendors

Regarded as an off-peak period for selling, less listings come to market which is great for vendors. House hunters are forced to fight harder over fewer options, driving prices up.

3. The weather is optimal 

Much like spring, autumn weather is ideal for house hunting. The cool, dry and sunny conditions bring buyers out in droves, resulting in strong attendance numbers at open for inspections and auctions. It’s also great for gardens, giving homes a cosmetic boost.
