Summer is the best time of the year to sell a property. As temperatures rise, sales and listings also heat up. This means in most areas, prospective buyers are abundant. However, there is also more competition with other property sellers during summer.

So, how can you maximize your potential to sell your property quickly and at a great price? Fortunately, there are many things you can do. Here are some recommendations:

Capitalize on the Busy Property Market

Early summer is particularly a busy period for the property market, with June and July being the most popular months. However, the market tends to slow in January because the summer school holidays are in full swing. This means most families have little time for house hunting as they go on holiday or are simply busy entertaining kids. So, if you are targeting families, this is important to consider.

Sell in Early Summer

If you want to sell your property quickly during the summer season, it is highly recommended that you get it on the market as early as possible. If your property is not up for sale by the start of December, you are at a disadvantage. When selling a property in the summer season, you should also keep a close eye on the competition. Make sure to assess the cost of your property carefully to keep it looking competitive.

Boost the Summer Kerb Appeal of Your Property

Make sure to boost the summer kerb appeal of your property. Keep the exterior tidy and neat to make an excellent first impression on potential buyers. Paint your front door, pull up weeds, trim the bushes, sweep the paths, and add summer plants with beautiful plant pots to add seasonal colour. Last but not least, get your garden in order so prospective buyers can imagine the outdoor area of your property on those warm summer nights.

Make the Most of Natural Light

Bright-looking properties sell fast during the summer season. So, make the most of natural light by tying back curtains and opening blinds. You should also remove any obstacles in front of the windows to let the natural light pour in to make your space feel larger and more inviting.

Work With a Seasoned Real Estate Agent

Selling your home on your own may seem tempting. Still, suppose you wish to significantly improve your chances of reducing stress, making more money, and improving the time your property is on the market. In that case, consider working with a seasoned real estate agent. When looking for an agent, keep these things in mind:

• How long has the agent been in real estate?

• Are they full-time real estate agents?

• How will they market your property?

• Will they keep in touch with you regarding the sale of your property?

• Is the agent internet savvy?

Timing isn’t everything when it comes to selling a property, but it can make a tremendous difference in how quickly and at what price it sells.

The summer season is the best time to sell a property, thanks to longer days, great overall weather, and more free time, making buyers more likely to hunt for their dream homes. Following the above-listed guidelines will help ensure that your property is more desirable and sells at the best price this summer.
