Spring has sprung at Holden & Prescott!

Spring is traditionally considered to be the best time to put your house on the market; here are the top five reasons why...

Better weather

  • Freezing weather and shorter days means many buyers delay house hunting until well into the New Year. By March, however, they are more eager to line up the viewings as it gets a bit warmer.

Picture Perfect

  • The lighter, brighter weather that comes with spring can instantly boost the kerb appeal of your property. Having your house photographed in spring when there is an abundance of natural light will show it off looking its best.

Flower power

  • If you have a garden, springtime means the grass is fresh and green, the trees are in bud and the flowers are in bloom.   A well-tended garden is a key feature and can add value to your property. Alternatively, a few colourful pots and planters can accent and lift the outside space.

Timing

  • There tends to be a greater influx of buyers during the spring months which in turn increases the likelihood of receiving offers. Also, families are likely to want to find their ideal property during Spring in order to be settled into their new home before the start of the September school term. 

The Market

  • The availability of long-term mortgage products now that prices are settling.
