Deciding when to put your home up for sale can be a tricky business, especially if you don’t know the market well. But, by timing it correctly you will stand a better chance of achieving your desired purchase price, and of getting a sale as quickly as possible.
Broadly speaking, the best time to sell is when the highest number of buyers are actively looking to buy. This means that you will have the positive effective of competition on your side, forcing buyers to give their best offer.
January is a slow month with less buyers actively looking over winter. However, come February it is all go in the housing market and this remains relatively constant until June/July, when the school holidays kick in and put many families off house hunting.
