The Best Time to Sell Your Property

If you live in Adelaide’s north-east – Tea Tree Gully, Banksia Park, Wynn Vale – you’ll know that the turnover of property in the past 10 years has been unprecedented. With subdivisions and property developments at an all-time high, investors recognise the appeal of excellent schools and community facilities.
 
Large family homes and beautiful parks and reserves in the area make for a heady mix of the highly desirable qualities. Adelaide’s changing workforce has also led to an increase in families moving to leafy suburbs that are close to the city.

 
People don’t move according to the seasons. Whilst the spring season brings out the best in a flowering garden, a home can look even more beautiful in cooler months. An open fire in a cosy living room can be more appealing to a family than a gorgeous garden that requires regular maintenance.
 
There’s a long-held wisdom that selling during the spring means more buyers competing for your property and therefore, you get a higher price. However, people looking to sell outside of the spring and autumn peak periods may be more time pressed and likely to meet a vendor’s demands.
 
Another benefit of selling off-season is that the buyer may request a shorter settlement, which means you can move on quicker. That’s particularly appealing if you’re moving interstate, overseas or have already purchased another home.
 
 

Experience Matters

When you’re looking to sell, no matter the time of year, invest in a relationship with a real estate agent that knows the area and the market. Suburbs like Ridgehaven, Highbury, Banksia Park, Yatala Vale, and Vista are changing demographically faster than most suburbs. There’s an increase in young first home buyers who are replacing the established empty-nesters and property values are rising accordingly.
