More homes sell in the Spring than any other time of the year

Spring is almost here and lots of Lancaster homeowners are getting their homes ready for marketing in the Spring. Easter is early this year which is bringing many homeowners moving plans forward. Lots of homes are getting valued, I can this confidently having already booked 250 valuations so far this year and it’s only early March!

Spring has long been acknowledged as the best time to sell, with flowers blossoming, the sun coming out and gardens springing back to life. It’s no wonder people’s thoughts turn towards moving home!

In the past five years (excluding 2020 due to Covid), springtime has bloomed with 27% of home sales, the highest proportion of any of the four seasons happening in this period.

During spring, properties found new owners in an average of just 51 days, significantly quicker than the 61-day winter average.

With buyer demand levels currently 7% higher than last year, now is a great time to get your property on the market!

If you are thinking of moving, can we chat? 28% of all home sales so far this year have happened with our agency – we have the buyers! Can we help?
