It’s a New Year – a time to reflect on things gone by and look ahead. Build on the positives and learn from the negatives. Whatever your aspirations for the coming 12 months – whether you want to further your career or change job completely, get healthier or start a family – now is the time to do something about it. And this is no more so than if ‘move house’ is on your 2023 bucket list. It’s cliché, but when it comes to selling your home and buying a new one, there really is no time like the present.
Starting the process and getting your home valued in January/February will mean your property will get in front of those looking to buy in early spring which has long been regarded as the best time to sell a house in the UK.
According to Rightmove (2022), March is the strongest month to have your house on the market with buyer enquiries per property for sale higher than any other month of the year. The weather can play a part in this property peak with longer, sunnier days showing homes in their best light and giving added curb appeal.
Buying a house in spring also means you should complete and be in your new home in plenty of time to enjoy a long summer holiday.
So, if moving house is on your New Year’s Resolution list, don’t delay. Get ahead of the property game to fully capture spring demand and get moving now!
