Sell in May?
What a relief, spring is here and hope is in the air after a long, bleak winter. For those looking to move, there’s even better news – spring to early summer has historically been the best time of year to put your house on the market*.
Proven to be the optimal time for selling your home, as gardens bloom, the milder weather in spring draws more people out house hunting and the brighter light helps properties look their best. You never know, competing buyers may prompt a potential bidding war on your property.
Here comes the sun
Although this year has been different, there are sparks of hope and positivity, so with optimism in the air, now’s as good a time as any to consider your options.
As we enter the property market’s golden season, if you’re looking for mortgage advice, please get in touch, we can help you get moving this spring. Here’s to new beginnings.
