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.
Here at Red Fox, thanks to a combination of the market and our unique, fresh approach, we’ve achieved record numbers of sales and listings every quarter since we opened the doors at the end of 2020. That’s been irrespective of the time of year.
You might be surprised to know that one of the lowest selling months in Perth is frequently September, the start of Spring.
In September, everyone seems to be busy. There are school holidays, weekends taken up by Winter sports finals, the Queens Birthday long weekend, the Royal Show, the major sporting code semi and grand finals, and the weather can often be crap.
Many sellers delay hitting the market until October or November, after the AFL Grand Final, as the weather starts to warm.
More competition in the marketplace and more properties for buyers to choose from. You also have a reduced window of opportunity to get a result before things start to slow for the 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.
