top-notch guidance on when and how to sell your property fast!

Mulling over the idea of selling up, listen up!

Rightmove has your back with some top-notch guidance on when and how to take the plunge back into the property market and sell your property fast!

According to the portal's deep dive into property listings since 2012 (excluding the pandemic-ridden 2020), February emerges as the superstar month for listing your home. Why, you ask? Well, homes listed in February have a stellar track record of finding buyers faster than a speeding bullet – clocking in an average of just 51 days. March isn't far behind at 52 days, and January holds its own in the mix.

But it's not just about speed; it's about success. A whopping 66.4% of homes listed in February go on to seal the deal with a buyer, securing its spot as the prime opportunity, neck and neck with April and edging out March by a hair's breadth at 66.3%.

February listings also take the crown for being the most likely to finalize a sale and the least likely to be pulled off the market by the owner. March, standing tall in the rankings, tells us that those gearing up for a spring sale are setting themselves up for success in 2024.

And here's the exciting scoop for this year: Buyer interest is up by eight percent, and sellers are stepping up to the plate with an 11% increase in new property listings.

Tim Bannister, Rightmove's property maestro, wisely reminds us that the best time to move is when it feels right for you. However, if you have a bit of wiggle room, the data sings praises for kicking off the sales journey early in the year. It's historically the time when buyers flood agents with inquiries, making it a sweet spot for sellers.

Ready to dive into the property game? Rightmove shares some golden nuggets:

  1. The Driveway Drama: Impress your potential buyer within the first 20-30 seconds. The front driveway, garden condition, external paintwork, and the front door matter more than you think. Don't lose them before they even step inside.
  2. Heartfelt Homes, Not Transactions: Make it feel like a home, not just a property. Warm it up; a well-heated entrance hall can make a world of difference.
  3. Declutter Like a Pro: Temporary storage is your new best friend. Clear the mess, let the space shine, and deck it out according to the season. If it's spring or summer, amp up the garden's appeal.
  4. Fix the Fuss, Not a Full Overhaul: Small issues can make or break a deal. Don't risk losing thousands over a minor repair. Skip the grand kitchen overhaul; the new owners might have different plans.

Here's to a smooth and successful selling season!
