Selling your property in Spring

Spring is a popular season to sell property

Timing is an important ingredient when selling your property and the Spring is historically a season when aspirational homeowners enter the market.

Considering the response to the Coronavirus Pandemic over the last 12 months, we have seen some variance in the seasonal trends in the property market and the underlying trend is positive. Covid-19 notwithstanding, the month of March sees the clocks spring forward creating even lighter mornings and evenings.

These facts allow the increased daylight hours to couple with nature’s bloom creating an environment that increases many properties’ aesthetics and ease of viewings. Blooming Wisteria surrounding windows, flowering plants on balconies, thriving gardens abundant with colour and freshly mown lawns. These components all accentuate “kerb appeal” enhancing first impressions and lending credence to why we believe it to be a great time to buy and sell property!

As we all follow the Prime minister’s “cautious but irreversible approach” out of lockdown, we invite those considering the sale of their property to contact our teams for an initial conversation prior to booking a Covid safe Property Valuation & Market Appraisal.
