News at Townends | 05/10/2018


With clear, starry nights, crisp mornings and the landscape taking on a beautiful rusty glow, autumn is an irrefutably beautiful and unique time of the year. As well as being distinct and attractive, autumn is a great time to put a property on the market.

If you’re thinking about selling your home, take a look at the following reasons why autumn is a good time of the year to put your home on the market.

Less competition with fewer properties for sale

Many homeowners choose to try and sell their property in the spring and summer. As fewer properties typically go on the market during the autumn, there is not the oversupply of homes for sale that other times of the year experience, meaning your home will be up against less competition from other sellers.

Beautiful surroundings

As mentioned above, autumn is a uniquely picturesque season and is a time when gardens, roads and outdoor space are blessed with a landscape of autumnal splendour. Furthermore, the weather can be favourable too during the autumn, with clear blue skies and warm, sunny days.

For potential buyers viewing your property, this beautiful external spectre and favourable climate can work in your favour, making your home and its outdoor space look even more attractive.

People want to secure a new home before Christmas

Another reason why autumn can be a good time to put a house on the market is because many potential buyers will be looking in earnest to secure a purchase, so they can be living in their new home in time for Christmas.
