Winter is the Season for ...

Thursday 03 Jun 2021

Past trends show that Spring is a very popular time to sell a house and like the weather, the competition is heating up. However, on the Coffs Coast, with our very temperate winter months, there is every reason to list your property now and showcase it in the glorious winter sunshine. To make the most of the season’s timing there are a few things you’ll need to do now in preparation.

Start your preparation now by decluttering and cleaning – presentation is paramount!  If your home is not presenting at its best it could languish on the market. Increase your curb appeal by tending to the gardens – rake the leaves, trim the bushes to let more light into the property and mow your lawn diagonally (it gives the appearance of a larger yard). Complete your pre-sale repairs now.  If you can do a lot of  the work yourself you can aim for a better sale price.

While the longer days and increased market activity in Spring make it an attractive time to sell it also means there is more stock on the market for buyers to choose from and getting your property to stand out from the crowd may be more difficult. Hence the appeal in listing during our lovely winter months, while stock is less but buyer demand still more!

The team at First National Real Estate Coffs Coast has the experience and the reputation to guide you through the sale process, help your property stand out from the crowd and achieve the best price. Start the conversation with us now if you are thinking of selling soon.
