Summer Vs Winter: Selling Your Home

Here at Belvoir Birmingham, we've been helping current and potential home-owners organise their sales and purchases for many years, whatever the season, come rain or shine.

Here at Belvoir Birmingham, we've been helping current and potential home-owners organise their sales and purchases for many years, whatever the season, come rain or shine.

A successful sale, in particular, relies on a number of factors to boost interest of the property. A can-do attitude and significant perseverance are needed from everyone involved, boosted by the detailed industry knowledge, advertising skills and general business acumen from your estate agent.

One thing that may not have been considered, however, is the time of year in which the property goes on the market. The weather, people's availability to view, and the general mood of buyers comes into play here, and it is very important to consider the season.

So, should you sell your home in summer or winter?

Summer

Summer may seem like an obvious choice for many reasons. The mood is generally bright and breezy, the trees in your neighbourhood will be in full bloom, and everyone is basically having a nice time. Or so you might think. The reality of property sales during the summer paint a different picture however.

Not only are people often away from home, but they may be hot, bothered and unwilling to seriously consider buying a property when there are other activities (pubs, holidays, walks and general relaxation) that may be on their mind. Though the season seems a convenient one, it is by no means optimised for sales.

Winter

Unfortunately, winter is not ideal either - or at least initially. Christmas has such an enormous impact upon people's moods that it can render them temperamental; they simply have other things on their eminds, particularly finances.

Waiting until January can ultimately provide better results. There is an optimism and 'new beginning' feel to the month, and people may be able to think more rationally about what they can and can't afford, as well as what they want from their new home.

What a Tightrope!

With that in mind, you may wish to consider the spring and autumn, for one, and contact us to seek some expert advice on the property market in the central Birmingham area. We'll do our best to organise a quick, highly satisfactory sale - whatever the season.
