Four reasons why the New Year is an ideal time to sell your property

New year, new adventures, new home?

Are you thinking of selling your property in 2018? You may be wondering when the best month or season is to put your property on the market. The definitive answer is that there is no definitive answer to what time of year is most likely to bring you the most success. In fact, with the property market in Australia and the Hunter Region staying steadily hot, selling your property has never been easier.

However, if you’re looking to extract the best price possible on your property sale, it pays to be a little bit strategic about your approach.

If you think the New Year holidays are a no-go, you might be missing out on a lucrative opportunity that would be difficult to find during the rest of
the year.

Here’s why:

1. It’s common knowledge that the warmer months are ideal for those looking to sell. The weather is warmer and the days are longer, therefore bringing out buyers. But there are also plenty of clever sellers taking advantage of that time, so competition is higher.

With competition a little quieter at the beginning of the year, this is a great opportunity to position your property as the best on the market, and therefore extract an unbeatable price from buyers.

2. Take advantage of the cheerful spirit of the holidays. People buy properties based on emotion, and there’s no doubt that the holiday season is strung with emotion. A powerful campaign will work with the holiday season to remind buyers of their aspirations for the New Year.

3. With many businesses closing and their employees on holiday, people have more flexible schedules. This not only helps sellers to maintain and keep their property clean for open houses and inspections, it gives homebuyers more free time to view your property outside of the standard viewing times.

4. The beginning of a new year often comes with change. People are seeking or starting new jobs and looking for a home to complement a new office and school location. Now is the time to have your property on the market so you can tap into buyers that are determined to find a property like yours as quickly as possible so they can settle in for the year ahead.

There are great opportunities to be found at the beginning of the New Year; so if you’re interested in taking advantage of this lucrative time and market, get in touch with us today.
