When is the best time to sell your property in East Anglia?

‘When is the best time to sell my home?’. As an estate agent, it’s a question we get asked a lot. And one which comes with a lot of misapprehensions.

Best time to sell

For example, some people believe their property won’t sell in the autumn, or that there’s no point in listing in December.

These assumptions are both wrong.

The way people search for properties has changed. Through the internet, potential home buyers are now able to search for properties 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

So, when exactly is the best time to sell your home?….The answer is, there is no bad time to list your property.

If the time is right for you to move, there’s no point in delaying listing. If you’ve decided now is the appropriate moment to move to a bigger home, if you need to relocate for work, or if you’re looking to downsize then now would be the best time to approach an estate agent to market your property.

Don’t worry if you want to sell outside of a ‘peak’ time.

As we’ve already said, seasonal trends are becoming more even. The bad weather argument that’s so often cited when deciding against listing in autumn and winter can be overcome by having exceptional photography in property brochures and on online portals. The effect of off-putting building work in the neighbourhood negated by listing before the construction work begins.

Always remember, the best time to sell your home is whenever your perfect buyer is looking to buy. And that can be any minute of any day in any month.

That’s where choosing the right Estate Agent to market your property makes all the difference.

Choosing an agent that has in-depth knowledge of the local area, and a wealth of experience dealing with similar properties to your own is far more important than choosing to list at a perceived peak time.

With the right agent and the correct marketing, your property can sell quickly. In any season.
