Spring has sprung, and many joys have come, including longer days, trees in bud, and flowers in bloom.

And if you're in the market to sell a home, you have another reason to rejoice there has been an uplift in the number of buyers looking to take the next step in their lives and move into the next chapter.

Therefore, why is it advantageous to sell during the spring? The following are four reasons why it makes perfect sense to do so:

Improved conditions

Hibernation is a wintertime practice that people, in addition to animals, enjoy. However, by March, they have discarded their blankets and onesie pyjamas and are eager to schedule viewings.

Proper lighting: Light is king!

Your photographs must look as professional as they can be.

When we first market your property, our team will take professional photographs of your property, high quality professionally edited video tours and drone photography can be arranged  for maximum engagement. If changes need to be made we can take fresh photos and revise the details.

The Garden

If your home has a garden, it only makes sense to show potential buyers this valuable amenity in the spring, when the garden is flourishing with new life. Your home's value can be significantly increased by maintaining a beautiful garden, so give it the attention it deserves to keep it neat and colourful. In addition, be sure to take care of the exterior of your property as well.

A positive first impression can be established by adding a few plants and a recently painted front door.

Price and Timeline

A good number of buyers are eager to get the moving process underway in the spring in the expectation that they will be able to complete their relocation before the summer break or the beginning of the new academic year in September. 

Setting the correct price can be one of the most crucial aspects of the selling process. We know you want the best price for your property, and we do, too!

However, setting the price too high will deter buyers, while setting it too low will result in losing money.

We recommend that you set your price in line with other comparable properties on the market; after all, these are your competitors. Our valuers at Butcher Residential will provide you with recent sales data to help you decide on a reasonable price and make an informed decision.

Usually, a property that is priced correctly will sell quickly.
