4 Fantastic Reasons You Should Sell Your House This October!

It is generally acknowledged that the most popular times for families to move home are Spring, early summer and Autumn. If you give this much thought it’s pretty obvious why. No-one much fancies viewing (or conducting viewings) over Christmas and most parents don’t want to be dragging their children around with them during the school holidays! Term time therefore becomes a prime time to sell your property.

But more than this, specific months can be great for selling your home. Here are 4 great reasons why October is a great month to get your home on the market;

1: Summer holidays are over, schools are back, kids are taken care of and there is still enough light in the evening to do weekday viewings after work!

2: Christmas is still two or three months away. Ask any agent or house builder and they’ll tell you that Christmas becomes a great deadline target for house buyers! They might not want to move in at Christmas – but an exchange of contracts before the Christmas break can give you an extra reason to celebrate and time to prepare for a move in the new year!

3: It may still be light(ish) in October, especially before the clocks go back, but cooler evenings can make for more liberal use of lights, central heating – and even that feature open fireplace. Autumn does wonders for making a home seem warm and welcoming!

4: Outside, the garden is still green or shades of autumn. Either way, gardens look great in the autumn – and the lawns in less need of a cut too – always a bonus when you are undertaking regular viewings!
