What to expect from our Bacchus Marsh real estate market over Christmas

real estate market 1It’s been exciting over the past few weeks to see more buyers viewing Bacchus Marsh homes and an increase in buyer enquiry for our marketed properties.  Many people mistakenly associate the Christmas season with a drop off in the real estate market, but in Bacchus Marsh we’re happy to say this is definitely not the case.  In fact, we expect to see an increasingly busy Bacchus Marsh real estate market from now until the end of summer.

So why the heightened interest in Bacchus Marsh real estate over summer?

Our discussions with buyers generally reveal two distinct reasons why enquiry and inspection numbers improve during this period.  The first is that families like to buy and settle in to their new home before the start of the new school year.  With the new school year beginning on January 28, 2014, we can be sure to see lots of families on the lookout for their dream home between now and then.

The second common reason we hear is that families are able to make more time to search for a new home over summer, as they often take time off work and don’t have to worry about school drops offs and pick-ups.  With more time on their hands they’re able to focus on house hunting, and get serious about putting pen to paper.

If you’re thinking of selling your Bacchus Marsh home, now is definitely a great time.  With more families on the look-out, and many wanting to settle before the new school year, we’re expecting this to be a season made for Bacchus Marsh real estate sellers!  If you’re thinking of selling, please contact our friendly team at Professionals Arbee Real Estate.
