Why is September a great time to sell your home?
September is often awash with properties. It’s a time to reflect and plan for the coming new year.
Why is it so popular?
The schools are back, the routine is back for many families and extended families now childcare is no longer required, it’s time for a new routine. Do you have children? I know with mine, it’s pretty hard to keep tidy while they are off and when they go back to school it’s a little light relief. A time to plan and put together schedules, bedtimes, work times get back to the norm.
September often sees some great weather, it’s still warm, trees are still green and the grass is still growing. Your house will still be looking great, the photographs will still capture that summer sunshine and viewings will more than likely still have a high chance of getting the best of the weather.
Holidays are over
For most, Holidays are scheduled in July and August, this means your viewers will be more available to view. No more holidays getting in the way of sales, surveys, solicitors duties. Sales agreed in September can be much quicker with everyone looking to complete before the cold weather sets in
New Home for Christmas
Imagine sitting in front of your new log burner, in the living room of your dreams with your 6 foot real tree in the corner of your home. That’s right, sell right in September and you could have your dream Christmas with your family round the dinner table in your new home.
Plenty of choice
As September dawns and many people will be looking to move you’ll have a much bigger choice. It’ll be much easier to find your ideal next home.
That’s right, this is always attractive as when the nights are longer your viewers can’t view too late into the evening. That means they’ll come during working hours, so you’re normal daytime routine isn’t disturbed!
Here’s a great reason for selling in the slightly less sunny months – the sunshine won’t show up the dust as much!! Ever sat in a room with the sun streaming through the window and all you can see is the dust on the surface and you’ll have only dusted the day before! Unless it’s a super bright day you ca get away with it.
