When it comes to the property market, there’s a general perception that spring is the best time to sell, but is this really the case? Depending on the layout of your property, as well as its location, you may benefit from selling in another season.

Winter

Winter offers vendors an opportunity to take advantage of the reduced number of properties generally available for sale during the cooler months. Winter can also be a great time to sell if your house is north or west facing, so take advantage of the warmth and brightness in your home if this is the case. Keep the house warm and cosy, but make sure it’s welcoming and not stuffy.

Autumn

Autumn can be a busy time in the real estate market but the key to success in this season is to ensure your property is welcoming irrespective of the weather. Work with Melbourne’s variable temperatures and conditions and keep your house comfortable no matter what.

Summer

Late summer tends to be a quieter time in the market, which could mean that more buyers have the chance to see your place.

Properties that are dark and cool, for example those with predominantly south-facing windows, will be at their best in summer as they provide a welcome respite from the heat.

Spring

And then there’s spring. A popular time to sell, and both buyers and sellers traditionally come out of the woodwork in this season. A clever way to stand out from the pack is to make your outdoor spaces shine.

Ensure the house is light, bright and fresh. If possible, open up doors and windows during open for inspections to let the spring breeze in.

Regardless of the time you’re selling, it’s essential to make sure your property is sparkling clean – inside and out – and any niggling maintenance issues have been taken care of. De-clutter your home and furnish it in a simple yet stylish way, so that buyers are able to visualise their own belongings in the space.

No matter the season, professional photography and a strong marketing campaign will help you get the best results. SOME KIND OF SELL FOR THE RELEVANT AGENT? E.g. No matter the season, professional photography and a strong marketing campaign managed by the team at XYZ will help you get the best result.
