Why you shouldn’t wait until spring to list your home

flowersSpring is renowned as a busy time in the real estate market, and with historically low interest rates available, this year certainly looks to be no exception.

But if you’re thinking about putting your property on the market, it could pay to do so sooner rather than later.

There is a growing number of buyers coming into the market, looking to take advantage of low interest rates on offer and get into the market while things seem to have slowed down somewhat.

The problem that many buyers face at the moment however is a lack of winter stock.

People have a tendency to wait until spring or summer to put their homes on the market, and while this can be a great time to sell and properties tend to look their best in the warm weather, it also means that there is more competition.

Those selling when the market is in full swing need to realise that they will have to work harder to make their property stand out. Buyers are usually less willing to compromise on their property choices or on price when they have a large selection of properties to choose from.

You can still have a great sale in spring, but you need to really pay attention to things like presentation and street appeal to ensure that your home stands out amongst other local properties.

If you want to get in before the peak of the spring selling market hits, you better get in quick!

It can take a bit of time to get your property ready for sale so go and have a chat to the Arbee Real Estate team right away and ask for advice on what needs to be done to optimise your selling price and if getting your home on the market sooner could pay off.
