Spring Is A Great Time to Sell A House

Hi folks,

It's nearly daylight saving, yay, and with it comes Spring and I think it's fair to say that everybody loves Spring. And the important thing for vendors is that buyers love it too. Days are longer and buyers have more energy to put the plans that have been at the back of the mind all winter into practice. Quite simply, buyers start to come out in larger numbers at this time of the year!

There are practical reasons why many people decide to make a new start in Spring and think of looking around for houses to buy. After all, the longer days have another benefit, extra daylight hours make it possible for many people to view a property for sale even at the end of the working day. From a vendor’s point of view, the garden too is starting to look good after the winter slowdown and is more likely than at any other time of the year to ensure that purchasers’ first impressions are good ones. Also, the house can be opened up to the fresh air, getting rid of any stale winter odours or to dry and dispel the odours of any quick paint or repair jobs needed to present the house at its best.

Many people who have been thinking of selling take advantage of the fact that their house and garden are looking good and that purchasers are out in larger numbers by deciding to put their houses on the market. The general optimism and feel-good energy that seems to be commonplace during Spring makes it one of the best times of the year to get the best sale outcomes.
