You have decided you want to sell but you may be wondering, is now the best time to put your property on the market? Luckily in North Brisbane, the market generally remains steady most of the year. However, there are still differences to consider with each season.

Summer
During Christmas and New Years, it’s a quieter time in the property market. This tells us that buyers want to make the move and settle into their new home before or straight after the festive season. It is why listing your home towards the end of summer can be beneficial. There are still buyers looking to purchase and with a lack of property on the market, this can bring more competitive buyers which results in a healthy sale price.

Autumn
Autumn can be a good time to list your home as buyers are looking to move before the cold sets in. You also get to take advantage of the leftover sunshine of summer. This means your home can be showcased in the best light as people view it. You would be surprised what a difference a little sunshine can make on the perceived value of your property!

Winter
It’s a common assumption that winter isn’t the best time to sell your home. However, in Brisbane, 74% of homes that were listed in Winter were sold. In our area, we’re lucky that our cold weather still brings in some great natural lighting to show off your property.

Spring
The property market in North Brisbane grows in spring with more buyers and sellers. For sellers, this is fantastic with more turn out at open inspections. As we know, buyers want to move before the festive season so spring is a great time to list your home.

Below we have compared the monthly sales in the high volume northside suburb of Stafford Heights. Keep in mind that the best time to list your home would be two months prior to the big settlement months.
