Why Is Now the Best Time of Year to Get Sold?

It’s hard to believe we’re only 7 weeks away from Christmas! Many sellers can be unsure if this time of year is a good time to sell… and the answer is yes, it is! In fact, it’s one of the best times of the year in WA to get your home sold!

Why, you ask? To sum it up, Christmas is right around the corner and the kids have just about finished the school year, so families who are looking to move are eager to get into a new home for following reasons:

Christmas Time

Families want to be all settled in, put up their Christmas tree and be able to enjoy the festive season in their new home. Sometimes this can even mean buyers are willing to pay a premium to ensure they can move in time for Christmas Day in their new home.

Back To School 

Families are thinking about where the kids are going to be at school in the new year. The new school year starts in the first week in February, so families moving will want to be well and truly settled into their new home for the start of school.

The number of listings available this time of year often declines, meaning yours can easily stand out from the crowd! So whether you’re selling your home or preparing for a move, this time of year offers many benefits to home buyers and sellers alike.
