As we are all aware, the property market has faced much uncertain over the past couple of years. We are no longer in a period where any house on the market, at practically any price, will almost certainly sell.
This is why it is vital that each property on the market is priced realistically and accurately. This does not mean selling a property at an undervalued price it simply means that if you wish to sell your house then it must be priced correctly. Any unprofessional agent can quote you high valuations and misguided figures, but achieving the sale in this climate is another matter altogether.
When selling your house it is imperative that the final valuation figure that you receive is based on experience and knowledge of the area by highly trained local agents. A useful exercise would be to ask for the values of comparable properties, just so you can get some realistic sale values in your head. The last thing that anyone wants is your property for sale sitting and stagnating on the market for months with little interest because an agent has overinflated its value just to get you on board.
Selling your home is equally as stressful as purchasing a new property so ensure that you do all you can to value your property at its correct price.
As with many different markets, seasonal change greatly influences the selling of property. For instance, Spring is a good time to sell your house as this is the time that many people use to purchase so they can get their children into new schools by September. If you wish to capture these Spring home movers, then you should be looking to put your house on the market by the end of February ready for an active period close to May and June. The advantages of a Spring sale means that you have longer days to fill up your home with as many viewings as possible, with more natural light and in bloom gardens added advantages.
Another season ideal for selling your property is Autumn. Putting your house on the market in early September means you will appeal to buyers hoping to move in before the Christmas period. However, beware as the Autumn selling window is short and the best prospect for selling your home would be in the months of September and October as these offer enough time for the sale to complete before Christmas.
If you still end up searching for a buyer for your property after the Autumn selling window then they will usually be in a stronger position, as post Christmas signals a traditional market slowdown.
In spite of all these factors it ultimately comes down to you when selling your home. If you are motivated and prepared to market your house correctly then selling your property becomes a much easier task. In the end, you are the determining factor.
