Optimal selling conditions following the end of the stamp duty holiday

Autumn is traditionally one of the best times to sell your home, and with demand levels remaining high despite the end of the stamp duty holiday, we're on track for one of the busiest years for sales yet.

Is now a good time to sell?

Annual house price growth was at 10% in September, so when combined with a shortage of available properties, homeowners looking to sell are in a promising position to achieve or exceed their asking price.*

Here are the top five ways to get your home sold this autumn:

Having neat furniture and fresh décor

Keeping your house viewer-ready is paramount to securing a quick sale.

First impressions count, so make sure your home is looking its best before any marketing materials or photos are taken, as well as for the actual viewings themselves.

Add some colour to your garden

Gardens can begin to look drab and unloved in autumn, however, there are simple changes you can make to ensure you get the full value from your sale.

Even if you have limited outdoor space, a tub or plant pot can easily brighten up your garden and make it look much more attractive.

Take advantage of natural light

Post-lockdown, bright open space is in demand.

Let as much natural light in as possible before having photographs taken, such as by cleaning windows and keeping rooms well lit.

It may also be worth illuminating any dark corners with lamps to give the impression of natural light.

Be available for daytime viewings

With limited light available in autumn evenings, it’s important to be available in the daytime. Any effective agent should be willing to do viewings when you are unable.

If you’re looking for the right agent, look no further and contact us to see how we could help you today...

Keep your home well ventilated

The last thing you want is your house to be stuffy while you’re having a viewing. Having fresh air circulating is a great way to make your house feel airy and comfortable.

It’s a good idea to open all the windows for an hour or two before the viewing.

With the last rush of sales before the winter months, get your house on the market this autumn. Contact us today.
