5 reasons to sell a home in the summer
We've got something you'll definitely want to share with your sellers.
Now the General Election is over (and that guy you've not seen in years stops filling your Facebook feed with his weird political views), we're going into what could be 2017's best season for moving house.
Edward Norman (left), partner at Surrey estate agent Roger Coupe is a major advocate for the 'Summer Sell'. Here, he brings together his top reasons why you and your sellers should act now.Summer Sell: for home improvements
EN: "During the warmer months, buyers know they can make immediate home improvements upon completion," says Norman. "Be it redecorating or an extension, the dryer months are prime DIY time, and provide the best opportunity to move forward with the least amount of disruption."
Summer Sell: you've never looked so good
EN: “The outdoors is now in full bloom, and a great looking garden can be the decisive factor for prospective buyers. In the summer, gardens are an added extension to a property as the area brings another room to the home. Having a space that is full of colour and brimming with life helps people visualise themselves alfresco."
Summer Sell: more daylight, more viewings
EN: “Longer daylight hours mean there’s more time for viewings. Buyers who can only visit a property at a weekend during winter will be able to view after work in the light. And, with the sun still shining until late, rooms will be filled with natural light.”
