Residential Sales – Selling Your Property

When is the best time to sell my house?

Traditionally, the best selling time in Ireland to sell your house is the seasons Spring and Autumn. Over the last few years, the early Spring market (Feb-April) has proven very strong as large numbers of buyers chase a limited number of properties. 

In the Spring, many sellers like to wait until after gardens come to life in April/May. This can cause a peak in supply, taking some of the heat out of the market. 

The Autumn market tends to be weaker as concerns around the budget can depress demand at key times. With delays in conveyancing, Autumn sales are no longer guaranteed to complete before Christmas.

Of course, house searchers can now search at any time of day or night, with property alerts pinging throughout the week, weekends, and holidays.

Even though a sale can happen anytime, the calendar month can influence competition, buyer psychology, bank loans, economic uncertainty and, ultimately, your bottom line.

In January and February, buyers are typically more motivated to buy as they feel inspired to have a new place for the year ahead.

Currently, in 2024, we are seeing very strong demand and low supply in the first quarter. There is a lot to be said for progressing matters while we have a sellers market. 

Significant price rises during the year 2024 are considered unlikely. In an increasingly unstable world, crystal balls are no longer reliable. Political factors could significantly undermine prices.

Before selling your house, you should consider getting a house valuation in Dublin.

And here is some helpful information on getting your house ready for the market.
