Selling your property in the ‘Off-Season’

When it comes to selling your home, a lot of people refer to the Autumn and Winter Seasons as 'off-season'. Quite often sellers hesitate or totally avoid listing their properties during these months as they commonly believe that it is the worse time to sell, however, this is not necessarily true. There are many advantages to selling your home in the off-season and we can name a few.

House hunting seasons really starts towards the end of summer as people are returning from their vacations, fewer events such as weddings, public holidays and tournaments occur which means there are fewer distractions when it comes to searching for a new property.

Another point which would work to your advantage is inventory levels, as many sellers believe that you should not list your property in the off-season, there are typically fewer properties on the market. The main advantage of this is, that there is less competition when it comes to selling your property, therefore, selling your property at a more preferable price.

Buyers commonly are a lot more serious when it comes to purchasing in the off-season. Over the course of the summer months, they are usually browsing the market for their ideal property and are not really ready to purchase. These buyers usually have some form of motivation when it comes to the purchasing of a property, such as relocation or job changes. This can benefit you as they would be looking to move in as soon as possible.

Planning appropriately is also one of the best things you can do, in order to promote selling your property in the off-season. You’ll have more availability with photographers and agents like us who can advise the more efficient and effective way to sell your property.

Contrary to what many people might tell you, there are no good or bad times for selling your property. Buyers looking to purchase homes remain on the lookout for a worthwhile property throughout the year. Traditionally, the volumes peak during the months of good weather conditions i.e. February to June. This is because people want to be in their new homes before school begins. In addition, people usually purchase property mainly in the spring because they want to use their tax return for making a part of the down payment. Similarly, volumes of home sales are at their lowest during the winter months.
