When it’s time to sell your house, you want to do it right and make the process as smooth and lucrative as possible. The time of year you choose to put your property on the market does make difference. August aside, each month sees plenty of house sales, however, January is a particularly good month to display your ‘For Sale’ sign.
Why is January the best time to sell?
- New Year, new start
The joy of selling in January is that the new year brings new starts and new beginnings and many people are feeling fresh and looking to the year ahead. Due to this, companies such as Rightmove report a boost in activity during the first month of the year.
- Less competition
Many still believe January isn’t the time to sell. This reduces your competition. Demand is still high in January, however, and with the market being less saturated, your property is more likely to stand out.
- Less hassle
If people are viewing your house in January, they are genuinely interested. Why else would they come out into the cold? During August, when many people are taking a well-earned break, it’s likely they just to fancy a nosy around your property.
So if you are ready, make sure you see in the new year with a polished property on the inside and out and get the ball rolling.
