When is the best time of year to sell your property?

When making an important life decision, it's essential to get the timing just right. You don't want to do anything significant if it isn't the right moment. Deciding to sell your home is a huge decision; getting the timing right could make all the difference to ensure a good sale.

For many years it has been believed that the property market is seasonal, increasing in the new year and then slowing down slightly until Spring. A lull in the summer months and a boost again in Autumn before slowing down again in winter until the new year, and it starts all over again. 

And, of course, there is sense in this belief. It is common to start the year with goals in mind; perhaps moving house is on the cards for you. So you browse the property market and turn these goals into plans as soon as the year starts. This results in an increase in activity in the housing market as a whole.

Also, many property sellers think about when they would like to move and work backwards from there. Perhaps they would like to move in the school holidays, so they start to market their home early in the springtime, increasing the activity in the property market.

Or maybe parents decide that searching for a property will be easier when the kids return to school in September and hope for a new home by Christmas, creating a spike in the activity in the housing market around September too. 

Do the peaks and troughs change so frequently throughout the year that they are no longer relevant? Is the property market no longer seasonal? 

Fundamentally, if the time is right for you, it is the right time. There is no need to wait until the next busy period in the housing market. Particularly when you use By Design to sell your home. 

By Design does not rely on traditional property marketing methods. Utilising technology and innovation to find the perfect buyer for a property means that the seasonality of the housing market has little impact on the success of achieving a sale. 

Pinpointing the ideal buyer for a home does not rely upon that buyer searching through the property portal websites. In fact, many homeowners opt to sell without broadcasting their property on these portals, instead achieving a sale with a discrete marketing strategy. 

The peaks and troughs of the housing market are not something that By Design sellers need to worry about when deciding to move. So, there is never a wrong time to market your home when you choose By Design. 

If you are looking to sell your home, whether you want to publicise your property or would prefer to be discrete, By Design can help you to achieve a sale at the highest possible price with the least amount of stress and upheaval to you.
