Many sellers mistakenly think that Winter is a bad time to sell – but the sales stats for Perth show that’s not true. In fact, July often tops the table as the highest selling month of the year, with August also typically making the top 50% of monthly sales transactions.
One of the lowest selling months of the year in Perth is frequently September, the start of Spring, which ironically is thought by sellers to be the best time of the year to market their home.
In September (depending upon COVID!) you typically have school holidays, weekends taken up by Winter sport finals, the Queens Birthday long weekend, the Royal Show, the major sporting code semi and grand finals, and the weather can often be crap.
So that means hitting the market after the holidays in October or November, along with everyone else that’s waited. The result? More competition in the marketplace and more properties for buyers to choose from. You also then have a reduced window of opportunity to get a result before things start to slow for Christmas and Summer holidays.
Unless you have an amazing garden that only really pops in Spring, or a super impressive pool and outdoor entertaining area that is really going to help sell your property in Summer, Winter, when listings get tight and buyers are scratching around for good quality properties like they are now, is a fantastic time to sell.
