As spring draws closer, the days are getting longer and the air is getting warmer. With longer days and better light, now could be the best time to put your property on the market. Marketing your property will almost certainly be easier in the spring months with more natural light creating a spacious feel to your home and longer days giving you more time to hold viewings and show your house at its best. With this in mind, we’ve put together 3 reasons why Easter could be the best time to put your property on the market.
A season for change
Spring is a time for new beginnings and often means that families feel the urge to change their house and/or location. Now that we’re coming out of the winter months, house hunters are more motivated to attend viewings and start taking their search for a new home seriously, meaning that it’ll be more likely that you’ll be able to sell your property quickly, and at a good price.
Traditionally families start looking for their new home during the Easter holidays so that they can move during the summer holidays and be settled into their home by the beginning of the school year. If you have a family home, then this could be the best time to put your home on the market and take advantage of this.
Throughout the Easter holidays, online property portals experience a huge increase in activity because house hunters have more time on their hands, so listing your property during this period is a great way to take advantage of the online buzz.
A good idea can be to host an open house. This can be a great way to speed up the process. In addition, with viewings for an open house typically being held over the weekend, this will mean you’ll have more time to do other things and will be able to avoid having to repeatedly clean your home for viewings that would otherwise be stretched over a few days.
This can be an effective way to create a lot of interest in the lead-up to the open day and this may mean that you’ll have a lot of people submitting an offer quickly for fear of missing out. Every person who attends will be given an appointment time on the day, so you’ll be able to cut out any time-wasters. Following an open house event, sales are often agreed upon just days after due to the sense of urgency that is created.
Lighter spring days
Properties look a lot better in the spring with better lighting and everything in full bloom.
Gardens are often a huge selling point for families with young children so putting your property on the market in the spring will help you to show your garden at its best which could be a key factor in getting an offer for your property.
Similarly, the increase in natural light will help your property to look better in photographs. Having well-lit and aesthetic photos of your house makes all the difference when marketing your property and attracting potential buyers. This will also save you time painstakingly editing the photos which could in turn mean that your estate agent will be able to list your property faster.
