Springtime is now upon us and we’re feeling the urge to freshen our homes up after winter, whilst outside the predictable sunshine and showers will result in longer lawns and attractive bursts of colour in our gardens. For many who have been waiting for winter to release its grip the arrival of spring signals the time to take action and prepare their home for marketing.
Although there is a 12-month market for property sales the ‘Daffodil Season’ has long been a popular time to sell your home with many positive aspects associated to the season. The days are longer, brighter and warmer giving more inclination and time to effect improvements and have your home looking its very best prior to marketing.
With the average house sale taking approximately 14-16 weeks from sale agreed to completion, marketing in springtime gives the opportunity of a summer move, making the best of fine, dry weather but with no guarantees when it comes to the Great British climate!
It would be wrong not to acknowledge the elephant in the room and this year, with Brexit looming, the waters are somewhat uncharted. However, the current market is showing an increase in activity levels with new properties coming to the market almost daily along with proceedable buyers.
There will always be people who need or want to move and if you are one of them, we would invite you to get in touch. As the traditional agent with a modern approach to selling property, we would be delighted to help you to spring into action!
