Why winter is a good time to sell your home

Reconsider selling your home in winter

Winter could offer unexpected benefits both in terms of the price you receive and how quickly you make a sale.

There is a widely accepted belief that spring and summer are the best times to sell your home. However, waiting until spring may not always guarantee you the best price – either as a buyer or a seller. According to Luc Tomasino, Director, hockingstuart's Sunshine office, "This is primarily because the volume of listings is at their peak during the warmer months. In a case of supply/demand, supply typically outweighs demand. To stand out in the crowded market, you would need to have something out of the ordinary."

Serious buyers only

Winter, on the other hand, offers a volley of benefits for the seller. A quieter market will mean your listing is more visible to buyers. Another consideration is the fact that winter buyers are typically more unwavering and serious about making a purchase. And, with fewer choices available, the possibility of a faster sales cycle should also not be overlooked as a benefit.
