Is now a good time to sell a house?

If you have the luxury of choosing when to sell, this article will show you the best and worst times of year to sell a house. Follow the advice and you can be confident that you're selling at a time that gives you the greatest chance of achieving the best price, in the shortest time.

forced to sell a house during a quiet month - please don't worry! You just need to recognise that you're at a disadvantage and act accordingly.

Selling a House in Autumn:

"When there are the most amount of buyers actively looking to buy"

Autumn has always been a good time to sell a house. However, it's not as good as the Jan - July period. Still, if you're trying to sell in late Sept or Oct you've nothing to worry about. Remember though, nobody wants to move over Christmas so don't leave coming to market too late. After the 2nd week of November buyers, like bears, tend to go into hibernation.

When to Sell a House - The 4 Seasons Compared.

Winter is definitely not the ideal time to sell. We would actively discourage anyone trying to sell a house towards the back-end of December. If you can hold out for the New Year you'll put your sale in a much better position.

What is the Best Time to Sell a House?

Broadly speaking the best time to sell a house is: This is due to the positive effect that competition has on your achievable sale price. Buyer competing over a property will force out the best offers. When you sell a house, this is a key factor behind getting the best price.

Selling a House in Spring:

Spring is a great time to sell a house or flat! • Gardens are in bloom

• There's plenty of good light and mild weather • Properties look their best

• The market is full with buyers

Spring is a pretty up-beat time of year. In good weather buyers are more prepared to go house hunting. Also, many families look to match their purchase with the end of the school year.

Selling a House in Summer:

High summer has never been the best time to sell a house (especially a family one). School Holidays are the big reason for this. Entertaining kids leaves little time for house hunting. Plus, everyone else goes away on holiday. But remember, it only takes ONE buyer to successfully sell a house!

In reality there are buyers out there 365 days a year. Just some days there are more than others. If you are

Selling a House in Winter:

When to Sell a House - Other Considerations When you sell a house, be aware of any major works that your Council may have granted Planning Permission for. For example:

New roads, major construction projects, the block of flats about to be built next door, the planned mobile phone mast that's will ruin the view from your kitchen etc. If you know about any of these things your buyer's solicitor will find out about them too. You can then expect some haggling over your price to ensue. If possible, it's best to delay selling your house until these sorts of projects are finished.

Experience tells us that buyers tend to find it pretty difficult to deal with the unknown. Give them an opportunity and they will always fear the worst. It just makes the job of trying to sell a house that much harder. Ask a Real Estate Professional about the best time to sale YOUR home! Good Luck!

2012 end of summer tips

You’ve been busy this summer with family & with out-of-town guests. The month of August is quickly slipping away from us, so these last couple of weekends may be your last time to Liz’ Tips really bust loose with your summer party hosting. By: Liz Quinn of Design’in-Mind

Maximum Impact with Minimal Investment Brockville, Ontario

Luckily, planning a last-minute backyard soiree is no big deal if you follow these tips for pulling together a fab bash at your house.

Live outside

Do you have a great deck or patio? How about sprucing it up a bit and making an effort to spend more time outdoors? Hang paper lanterns from your trees. Redesign your patio with some comfortable outdoor furniture, potted plants and a snazzy outdoor Drink Dispensers rug. Build a gorgeous outdoor water fountain. Fire up the grill and make your meals outdoors so you can take advantage of everything Invest in a pretty drink dispenser and be creative with your recipes.. this fabulous season has to offer.. Spike the lemonade with some gin and add some lemon & lime slices.. Or maybe a mango-watermelon punch? Simply add some Indoor Furniture in the Outdoors ice! No need to babysit your guests; they will serve themselves a Create an instant seating space by simply pulling indoor furniture refreshing drink with a dispenser at hand. out onto a porch or patio. It doesn't get any easier than that! Outdoor Chandeliers

Have some Mason jars? Pick up some small-link chain from the hardware store. Make a glass chandelier and hang it from a tree branch. The twinkling votives will add a little magic to the evening.

Eye-catching Textiles

Adding a drop-dead gorgeous textile, like this colourful coverlet, to a rustic outdoor setting can really up the wow factor. It also means you can get away with doing hardly anything else to get the party look established. Add candles in jars for an inviting look..

Deck Chairs Hammocks

Deck chairs are versatile, chic, and perfect for a backyard party. Since they're easily folded, guests can move them from one place to another if they need to wander elsewhere to join a conversation.

Everyone loves a hammock! Provide extra seating by hanging up Bunting a hammock or two from a porch, tree, or deck.

Paper Lanterns

There's no yard needed when you take the party to the rooftop. String some paper lanterns to create a warm ambiance as the sun goes down.

Focal Points for Your Pool

Don't forget to decorate the pool! While these flower balls are likely too intricate for a last-minute party, you could create a fun look in your pool by simply blowing up beach balls and tossing them in. No beachball? Inflate some different colour balloons, put in a bit of water to give them some gravity…and voila!
