When is the right time to sell?

At this time of year, I am often asked

‘Is now the time to sell my property or should I wait until the Spring?’

In truth, the answer can vary significantly. This month I can identify three houses where I have advised the vendors to wait until Spring – for three different reasons, some personal and some property related. Those cases though are in the minority – in the vast majority of situations I have advised to go to the market straight away.

Most people move because of work, education, financial or family reasons. These triggers do not fit into a Spring / Summer window; they are applicable at the moment they occur. When you need to move you need to move! So, if you have a house to sell, it is more logical to place to the market and let the market decide – rather than trying to second guess the habits or circumstances of buyers.

If you are going through the same dilemma with your own property – please contact me and I will be happy to advise.
