As winter finally clears, what does the new season hold for property sellers?
The latest report from CoreLogic RP Data reveals impressive auction numbers from the final weekend of August. Melbourne had 1,024 homes went to auction, with 77 per cent of these preliminarily cleared. This boasts an increase over the previous weekend's auction clearance rates, which was at 74.3 per cent.
As Melbourne's auction market finishes winter off on a high, sellers are wondering if spring will bring results just as strong, if not stronger.
After all, there are several reasons why Spring is traditionally seen as the best time to sell your home.
Families often want to purchase their home before summer approaches, as many plan to spend the sunny season away on holiday. Things like exams and the next year's school registrations are also on parents' minds as the end of the year approaches, pushing them to purchase their new home and move in before then.
The visual appeal of a property's garden plays a big role in its sale. In spring, flowers begin their blossom, giving homes greater sense of beauty and charm. Portraying your property with this advantage will help to attract potential buyers.
The weather also plays a big hand in property sales. In winter, buyers often have to brave through the cold wind and rain that come with the season in order to view a home. In spring, the air is drier and crisper, making it far easier for house hunters to come and give your property a look. More viewers mean more potential buyers.
