Brushing off the Winter Blues

Isn’t it amazing how much better we feel when the sun is shining ? On my drive to work this morning I felt more alive and ready to jump into the day. My fingers and toes are crossed that this is the start of the turn from the very cold weather that we have been having and we are now on the upside of the ride into spring!
Even over the last weekend whilst still cold, the sun came out to play and we noticed the increased attendance at open inspections for both sale and rental properties. If you are planning on putting your home on the market we suggest now is the time to consider it.
If you have started thinking about your move, and kept an eye on the market, you will have noticed the reduced number of real estate pages in The Advertiser. If you are trying to buy, you will have seen that there is a limited supply of the style of home that you are probably looking for and plenty of buyers trying to secure them. Come September hundreds of homes hit the market together and there is a plethora of choice for buyers.
So, consider placing your home on the market in August. There are less properties for sale so the quality of yours will stand out, hopefully creating competition between buyers for your home. You may then sell at a better price. You know exactly how much money you have to spend, you are cashed up, and then, when all of the homes hit in Spring you are in the ideal position to select from a larger range with better bargaining power.
It’s just a thought .…….. So if you would like some further advice, any of our sales partners would be more than happy to talk to you. Just give us a call.
