Buyers for a property can be found all year round however it's not often that a purchaser for your home is out there, just waiting for you to put your home on the market. Timing, presentation and advertising are all required to bring buyers and sellers together for the best result. The change of season is often considered to be the best time to sell ie: Spring leading into Summer or Autumn leading up to Winter. Historically, the lead up to Christmas and Easter are peak selling periods. These are times of market optimism and more potential buyers will be out and about. Prior to placing your home on the market, allow an additional two weeks to prepare both the property and the marketing material.
