As December is fast approaching, many homeowners think that they should wait to put their home on the market for sale until Spring, as buyers will be too busy preparing for Christmas. This is not true!
Not only will you be helping other homeowners sell their homes before yours, due to the fact that buyers won’t even have the opportunity of looking at yours if you’re not on the market in the first place, but buyers love walking through a home that has the smells of the season from biscuits baking in the oven, to pine scented candles.
Some properties actually show better during Winter. Especially if they’re South facing. Winter sun purchasers often have “South facing,” at the top of their wish list!
Buyers that visit this area during the winter months are generally, serious purchasers. They are usually the type of people that don’t have the chance to take the time off during the rest of the year. Families especially, often search for holiday homes during the school holidays.
Or if your property is currently on the market, and you’re tempted to remove it until January, find your willpower and stay the course.
There is always lower inventory during the Winter. If you wait until Spring to list your property for sale, you’ll be competing with everyone else that has that very same opinion. You don’t want to be competing with your price! Low inventory (fewer properties on the market for sale) = higher price. High inventory = lower price.
Remember, your home won’t ever sell, if it’s not on the market!

Whether you’re thinking of selling or are in the process of completing your sale, there’s one thing that most people dread…. Moving out!
It’s not too bad if you’re selling your holiday home, as most times they’ll be sold fully furnished. But, if it’s your permanent residence, you’ll have accumulated not only additional furnishings, but lots of memories along the way that need to be boxed up and moved with you, on to your new home.
It’s always advisable to start early and having a sort through what you’ll be wanting to keep, and what you’ll be wanting to sell or donate, when your house comes to the market for sale. But I know that this isn’t everyone’s favourite job, and putting it off until you’ve found a buyer seems like a good idea. If you start early enough and do a little at a time, this will definitely help ease any potential stress of the impending move.
But, if time is not on your side and you need to “get moving” literally and physically, then start by putting post-it notes on your items. Use green ones for “go,” red ones for “no” and yellow ones for “maybe.”
If you need boxes, instead of buying them, why not go to your local supermarket and ask them for some. They’re always throwing boxes out and will be glad to let you have them for free.
When it comes to boxing up fragile items, wrap them in towels and clothing. This will save you money on bubble wrap and paper.
Jewellery can slide everywhere, even in jewellery boxes. By threading necklaces through a straw then closing the clasp will keep them from tangling together.
Most importantly with any move, is to be prepared for your first night in your new home. Keep one box to the side with all of your immediate necessities within easy reach. Put in the box: paper plates, plastic cutlery, paper cups, kitchen towel, toilet paper, soap and dishwashing liquid. At least now you won’t be rummaging around going through every box looking for soap! But, more importantly is to keep all your medications to hand.
You do know the easier alternative is to pay someone to do all this for you – whilst you sit back and look forward to the first night in your new home!
