Petersfield property owners are you ready to list your home?
Saturday the 17th of March 2018 was St Patricks Day and all over the world, people were celebrating with a Guinness and wearing green. If you follow rugby, it was an apt day for Ireland to clinch a Grand Slam in the 6 Nations Rugby tournament but if you are considering selling your home in Petersfield, was this the date Petersfield property owners should have listed their property?
An online estate agency made a major announcement that the 17th of March was the optimum day for people to list their property to make a sale. As you would expect, there was some logic to this thinking but equally, and again as you may expect, there isn’t too much logic or reasoning. The starting point for this company came with the fact that in 2017, June was their busiest month of the year. The firm then took the average number of days to sell a property, which was 96, and subtracted this amount from the beginning of June. This simple equation resulted in March 17th being the date that they believe would help sell your home.
There is still time to find the ideal date to list property in Petersfield
Of course, the national average differs from the average time in certain locations. The average time to sell property in Petersfield, according to home.co.uk, is 91 days, which is five days fewer than the national average. This means if you believed that this approach is accurate, there is still time to list your property on what may be the most effective day. By this logic, Thursday the 22nd of March 2018 is the day when Petersfield property owners should list their property to make a sale.
Then again, if every prospective seller listed their property on the same date, the market would be flooded. This may mean that your property is overlooked in the marketplace, which means that following this example could harm the chances of selling your home.
Petersfield property owners should focus on the essentials when selling your home
While you probably shouldn’t pay too much attention to gimmicks in the marketplace, there are things you can do to sell your home in a more effective manner. One of the best steps you can take is to work with a skilled and experienced estate agent. The advice and guidance provided by a specialist with knowledge of your local area is an essential component in selling your home.
Local reputation and knowledge counts for a lot when it comes to the property market. Yes, it can be helpful to be aware of expected peaks in the market or to make decisions based on when prospective buyers are likely to be active, but ultimately, property owners shouldn’t be swayed by fads or trends.
