Is Spring Really “The Selling Season” ?

Spring is traditionally referred to as “The Selling Season” and with very good reason.

The arrival of the warmer weather heralds a marked increase in the number of buyers looking for that special property to enable them to move in before Christmas.

With the arrival of Spring, the real estate market is set to blossom in a big way. Gardens are looking at their absolute best and sellers are able to present their properties well so that the first impression a potential buyer gets is a very favourable one.

Attention to Detail is Crucial! With many properties coming onto the market it is imperative to go and stand in the street in front of your house and try to imagine that you are looking at it for the first time as a possible buyer. Try hard to pick the faults. It is better for you to find them and fix them rather than have a buyer see them.

Make sure that any minor repairs to the fence or gate are attended to and any flaking paint is removed from eaves or facia boards. Sweep the paths and remove any winter weeds from the garden beds. There are a lot of small things which you can do inside your home to give it that extra “sparkle” appeal. One of our consultants can help with advice and also referrals to local tradespeople.

A few minor touch-ups here and there can make the difference of thousands of dollars in your final selling price.

If you are thinking about selling and taking advantage of the Spring Real Estate season, the first think you need to do is find out just what your property is worth in the current market. Throughout September and October, our team is offering free market appraisals to all homeowners, without risk or obligation.
