Autumn is here and it’s a great time to buy and sell
The nights are getting darker and the crisp summer leaves are falling from the trees – autumn is officially here!
Believe it or not, this time of year is actually one of the most popular times for buying and selling property in the UK.
One of the key reasons for this is that most people want to wrap up a big move or sale before Christmas. While it’s not impossible, and you can often grab a bargain in the winter, November and December tend to be quieter in the property market, so selling and buying in September and October is always popular.
Besides wanting to have your sale wrapped up in time for Christmas, there are other benefits to an autumnal sale or purchase. Summer is one of the busiest times of the year as everyone rushes to get moved and make the most of the BBQ weather, but this also means the market becomes less competitive in autumn and you might find you can get moved much quicker.
Weather can also play a big part in this too. Summer is generally one of the busiest times of the year for the property market as the weather makes for a pleasant move. The same goes for autumn, as temperatures are generally far milder than the winter months which mean you don’t have to contend with the elements – be it sun or snow.
The key to making the most of an autumn sale is to make your property warm and inviting by making the most of any features which make your home appear cosy and warm, so be sure to light scented candles, fire up your wood burner and offer a cup of tea to guests. Finally, don’t forget to maintain good housekeeping by clearing leaves, spider webs and any other autumnal debris out of the way!
