5 Reasons To Sell Your Home This Summer

It is no secret that summer is over and the kids are back at school before we know it. July and August are likely your busiest months of the year but this goes hand in with the housing market. We have outlined 5 reasons why summer is the best season to sell your home.


  • Kerb appeal. A home is the most attractive to a buyer when the sun is shining, flowers are blooming and the trees are green! Why not add planters and hanging baskets to make your property feel more homely?


  • Great moving conditions. Selling during the warmer months makes it easier to move on the day. Longer days means you have more time to move into your new home, especially if you have had a late completion!


  • Better hours for viewings. By having longer days means you have more time for viewings. We have found that a lot of buyers prefer evening appointments but they cannot see the full potential of a home whilst it is dark outside.


  • It’s a seller’s market. Putting your house on the market in summer could mean better photographs, more viewings, and potentially a better price for your home. Buyers tend to have more time around summer and this always works in the seller’s favour.


  • Be in your new home before Christmas! Who wouldn’t want to be settled in to their new home in time for Christmas?
