Selling your home in spring

Sellers   |   March 25, 2021   |   twentytwo


Spring is here and it is a great season for those looking to sell their home. A new season brings exciting changes.

Especially this year, sellers can look forward to pent-up demand from buyers due to the lockdowns, the stamp duty extension and the 5% deposit scheme. In the last year, priorities changed for a lot of people with many having to work from home. This means there are a lot of buyers looking to move out of city centres and find places with more open space.

Alongside this, the announcement of the stamp duty extension – till the end of June there is no stamp duty for properties up to £500,000 and after that, till the end of September for properties up to £250,000 – means a lot of buyers will be taking advantage of this and looking to purchase.

Aside from these factors, there are more reasons why selling your home in spring is a suitable time.

Reasons to sell your home in spring: 

  • Good lighting

March is the month the clocks go back and it becomes British Summer Time. With more light during the day, this will help for photography when marketing your property and conducting viewings with prospective buyers.

  • Spring colours

With the bloom of spring, your garden and flower beds will have colour, enhancing the aesthetic of your property. Upon entering a home for a viewing, the bright and colourful garden is going to be welcoming and a lot more appealing than the cold seasons.

  • Warmer weather

After the cold winter months, the increasingly warmer weather gets buyers active and with the seasonal change comes life changes. The warmer weather encourages buyers to get viewing, plus it is more comfortable when doing so as they’re not thinking about how cold it is!

  • School term

Buyers with children will take into consideration the school year ending and starting. Therefore, buying, moving and settling in time for the September term would be preferable and for them, it means looking and buying during the spring time.

  • Moving is easier for buyers

Spring is a season where most people won’t be busy and distracted unlike in the winter with the festive period or in the summer with obligations of going on holiday.
