According to property agents, there are several times of the year when one can get a better price on the house than at others and when they sell comparatively quicker than other times. It is a well-known fact that the sale of properties is highest during the spring months, from April to July. It has been observed that the number of houses that sell during spring and summer months are double the number of houses which are sold during the fall and winter months. One of the reasons for this is because parents tend to take advantage of the time when the kids are off school.
However, this is not necessarily the best time to sell. This is because of the simple reason that everyone has the same thinking and they try and sell their homes during this period. As a result there are a number of properties on sale in the same peak period. In winter months, the number of houses for sale is much lesser than what they are in the summer months. According to estate agents, if one sells his house between Halloween and New Year’s, there are chances that the house will be sold faster and fetch a price closer to the asking price. According to agents, the autumn buyers have waited through the entire busy season for a better deal.
