Selling in Autumn

March 5, 2018 Uncategorised

Leaves are falling but prices certainly aren’t for the Victorian property market. During this picturesque season there are plenty of opportunities for both buyers and sellers. Here are a few of the many reasons to sell this Autumn…

The cool change.

There is nothing worse than attending an open for inspection feeling hot and bothered, or alternatively resentful and wishing you were down the beach instead. Following a long hot summer, Victorians are likely to embrace the cool change and may be more open to making their next move on the property ladder.

Increased buyer attention.

It’s no secret that Spring is the peak time for Real Estate, and the market becomes saturated with beautiful homes. In Autumn you’ll still have an abundance of prospective buyers, however, you won’t have as many properties to compete with.

The grass is greener.

Summer can really take its toll on your lawns and garden’s. Following our particularly hot January and February, you may find your garden is looking dry, sparse and lifeless, however, this all begins to quickly reverse in Autumn as the milder weather begins to kick in. Embrace those Autumn showers, it’s great for first impressions.

Keep in mind…

Autumn is a disrupted time of year, there’s Easter, Anzac Day, and school holidays so choose your selling schedule wisely to ensure you receive the most optimal price for your property.
