This week I thought I would address a question which I am regularly asked – ‘do I need to sell my home before I buy a new one?’ I find people fall in to two camps with 50% of buyers coming to me to find their next property having already sold their home and 50% who have decided not to put their house on the market until they find their next one. So which is the right way to do it?
Marketing your property at the right time of year can have a big part to play in how quickly you sell it. Even in the competitive Bishop’s Stortford area, market it at the wrong time of year and you risk your property sitting out there for weeks, with your estate agent not receiving a single call. Once it’s been on the market for a while then people start to wonder ‘what’s wrong with it?’ Launch it at the right time of year however and you should sell your property quickly and for the right price.
