The question of when to sell his largely influenced by the onward purchase. What do I mean by this? Most people choose to move for a specific purpose, be it job relocation, schools for children, more space, smaller garden, quieter location and the list goes on.
As such these conditions hold the key to the best time to sell.
Traditionally spring would be the standard answer, however these days with Rightmove and the digital marketing we have access to on a day-to-day basis it is less important to be dictated to by such an archaic notion. It is possible to sell at any time and still get a good result.
One thing to bear in mind is that this year the property market has seen less availability of new stock than we have experienced in probably a decade…As such, there is a significant supply and demand situation driving prices upwards.
Bear in mind if you are up sizing the longer you wait further out of reach the larger property will become, reversely if you’re downsizing the longer you wait the more money will be left in the pot!
