Spring is in full swing and we’re starting to see warmer weather, longer days and blossom on all the trees. The spring months are seen as one of the best times of year to sell your house for many reasons, and here’s why…
Some call it ‘Spring Fever’ but the sudden change of season has a scientifically proven impact on the body. There is an increase in restlessness and excitement, making us want to redecorate or spend more time outdoors.
Longer, brighter days
With longer and brighter days, there’s more opportunity for viewings later in the evening which is when most people are able to attend. The brighter days and evenings also show your property in the best light as well as making it more appealing to prospective buyers.
Garden in full bloom
A lot of people will start revaluating their gardens as summer approaches, thinking their garden is too small for all those garden parties they’d like to host – so people will be on the hunt for their dream summer garden.
A new school
By making an offer on a house in the spring, buyers will be in their new homes by summer and as the new school year rolls around, perfect timing. This is another reason why spring is the ultimate time to pop your house on the market, lots of people are looking!
Lacking in space
It’s quite usual for us to be in full spring cleaning mode at this time of the year and a lot of people realise that they’re lacking in space as they start moving things around, another effect of ‘spring fever’.
We also offer to give £250 of our selling fee to your chosen local school upon selling your property. This is just one of the many ways we give back and help support the local community.
