Buyers for a property can be found all year round however it's not often that a purchaser for your home is out there, just waiting for you to put your home on the market. Timing, presentation and advertising are all required to bring buyers and sellers together for the best result.
The most important part with timing is that when the marketing commences that your home is ready for buyers to view. All the little things (see selling tips) have already been completed before buyers are aware that your home is "on the market".
A well presented home, that is available to view with easy access and is priced correctly in the market place will ensure a great price is acheived in a reasonable time frame.
