January is a tough sell for many people. The twinkling Christmas lights have been packed away, the bills are imminent and cold and darkness abound, but spring is just around the corner and it brings with it the best conditions for those who want to sell their property.
If you buy a home in springtime, chances are good that you will move in during the summer. Almost all buyers want to be in their new homes before the chaos of the schools starting back in September. In fact, you may be surprised to learn that, for that reason, house sales tend to decline during July and August before picking up somewhat in the autumn. As temperatures plummet in winter so do house sales with very few people wanting to move over Christmas. The truth is that there is no better time to sell than spring, so, if you’re thinking of selling your home, January is the best time to start making inquiries.
School holidays are bad news for sellers as families tend to be too busy to search for of view properties. With the Easter holidays out of the way in April this year, sellers will have a good uninterrupted run into Summer. With the longer evenings in springtime, they can also look forward to more viewings.
