You may have heard that winter is not the best time to sell. There is however some positives and some negatives to consider. It is important to remember that there is less stock, motivated buyers and cooler days to deliver great views. It is possible to get a great price for your home.
Less stock – this may simply be a myth as in Sydney we don’t have horrible snow days when people can’t leave their house. There are still plenty of homes available during a buoyant market.
Motivated buyers – People making the effort to look at homes in the cooler months are more likely ready to buy. Particularly if your inspection day is a rainy day!
Cosy living – You can show off just how cosy your home is during the cooler months. The warmth from a fire or ducted air conditioning shows your home at its most welcoming.
Buyers have to brave the weather – You may not get as many people through but the people who do come through will be genuine.
Wet weather can reveal issues in your home – Older homes may show damp issues or water issues. However, a serious seller would always repair this first.
Less natural light – Your home may not look its best in lower lighting
What about the other seasons
You may have heard that Spring is the best time but really, the best time is when you are ready to sell. It is the best time when you can present your property in its best light and overall presentation.
