Selling in 2022? Take advantage of January

In our experience placing your home on the market in mid-January can be an advantageous time for vendors to sell their property. Here’s why January is a great time to sell.

With many buyers looking to secure their new home before the holiday season begins, stock levels drastically reduce once we get to Christmas.  Once January arrives, there are drastically fewer listings increasing the chance your property will be seen by buyers. As February begins, the supply goes up again more inventory means more competition, longer days on the market and potentially less money for you home. Strike while you can with a January listing date. 

January is also a time where people take stock of what they want to achieve in the coming year and set resolutions. Often these goals can include buying a new home or investment. Over the summer holidays, people who are thinking of purchasing have had the time to research and are now transitioning into serious, eager buyers. Selling a house in January puts your property in front of motivated buyers, who are actively scanning for the their next property purchase. 

With Summer comes longer sunny days. If you have a deck or patio, selling your house in January is something you should consider to make the most out of your outdoor space and draw the attention of your potential buyers when other options are scarce.
