Illawarra Selling Selling Property

The Best Time to Sell in The Illawarra: Welcome to The Summer Collection

Selling a home can be a daunting task, but choosing the right time to list your property can significantly impact the outcome of your sale. While each season has its advantages, there’s a strong case to be made for selling your home in the summer. As the days get longer and the weather warms up, potential buyers are more active and eager to explore the housing market. While summer is undoubtedly advantageous, the holiday season brings its own set of opportunities. Christmas, known for family gatherings and celebrations, often prompts individuals to consider making significant life changes, including buying a new home. The period between Christmas and New Year’s, with Boxing Day at its pinnacle, witnesses a surge in online activity, including real estate listings. In this blog post, we’ll explore why summer is considered the best time to sell your home and how you can make the most of this season to attract prospective buyers.

Curb Appeal at Its Peak

One of the key advantages of selling your home in the summer is the opportunity to showcase your property’s curb appeal at its peak. With gardens in full bloom, trees lush with foliage, and lawns vibrant and green, your home will make a positive first impression on potential buyers. Take advantage of the season by planting colorful flowers, mowing the lawn regularly, and ensuring that the exterior of your home is well-maintained.

Increased Market Activity

The summer real estate market is typically more active, with a higher number of buyers actively searching for their dream homes. Increased market activity can create a sense of urgency among buyers, potentially leading to faster and more competitive offers on your property. Following from Christmas, as families unwind from the festivities and start contemplating the year ahead, there is a notable increase in online browsing for potential homes. Many individuals use this time to plan for the future, including the prospect of a new home. As a seller, leveraging this festive season momentum by strategically listing your property during this time can lead to a spike in online views and, consequently, a higher likelihood of attracting interested buyers. We are now offering an exclusive opportunity to capitalise on this market with offerings to get you sold over summer at the best value.


Another compelling reason to consider selling your home in the summer is the heightened sense of exclusivity in the real estate market. During this season, there is often an influx of motivated buyers actively searching for their next home. However, this surge in demand is often met with a limited supply of available properties. The result is an environment where your home becomes a sought-after commodity, standing out among a relatively exclusive selection. This exclusivity can create a sense of urgency among potential buyers, leading them to act swiftly to secure their dream home. As a seller, this unique market dynamic positions your property as a valuable and desirable asset, potentially driving up competition. The scarcity of available homes can turn the odds in your favour, making the summer season an opportune time to list your home for sale.

Natural Light and Positive Vibes

Summer brings longer days and increased natural light, creating a bright and inviting atmosphere inside your home. Open up curtains and blinds to let the sunshine in, making your home feel more spacious and cheerful. The positive vibes associated with the summer season can have a psychological impact on potential buyers, making them more likely to envision your home as their own.

Easier Moving Logistics

Families often prefer to move during the summer months, especially those with children. The break from school provides a convenient window for relocation without disrupting academic routines. By selling your home in the summer, you cater to a larger pool of potential buyers who are more likely to commit to a purchase during this opportune time.
