When it comes to selling your home, many people start with the date they want to be moved out by and then calculate back from there.  There is a great variance around the country when it comes to average length of time a home is on the market, and of course, each home should be judged on its own merits, but it is not out of the question to suggest that selling your home can take around two to three months.

As we move towards August, it is obvious that if you are looking to have your house sold and then be settled into a new property by Christmas, you don’t want to leave it much longer to start he selling process. If everything ran smoothly, you could probably place your home on the market in October and have matters concluded in time for Father Christmas, but most people prefer to leave some leeway when it comes to property transactions.

Summer time is an appropriate time to consider selling your home

At Deakin White, we are pleased to say that we have helped many people sell their home and if you have a deadline in mind, we will do our best to meet this deadline. The sun may be shining, and memories of the World Cup are still fresh in our minds but if you are determined to sell your home in time to be settled for the festivities, this is the ideal time of year to start taking things seriously.

As we are in the middle of the summer, it may take a while to start the process. Many professionals are on holiday and you may not get the immediate support you are looking for. We are here all year round, so you can rely on us to assist you at any time of year but placing your home on the market requires the work of many professionals, and this can cause delays.

Make your home attractive to the right buyer

Right now, you should focus on making your home as attractive as possible. When it comes to selling your home quickly, an attractive home at the right price will usually sell faster than an unappealing home or a property that is overpriced. At Deakin White, we will do our best to ensure that your property is correctly valued, and we will do what we can to help you improve the appearance and value of your home.

Even with a limited timeframe, there are steps you can take to improve the value or appeal of your home; and it is vital that you present the home to the right buyer. We understand the local property market and we know what buyers are looking for homes in the area. If you want to speed up the process of selling your home without compromising on quality, present your home to meet the needs of the most likely buyer and at Deakin White, we know the local property market.

In the summer time, you can present your home and garden in an effective manner, so there is a bonus to selling your home at this time of year. With a clear strategy, you can present your home in an effective manner that appeals to buyers, and we will ensure that all viewings and negotiations are handled to your benefit.
