Ah Spring. The birds are singing, flowers are in bloom and buyers are emerging from their winter hibernation, purses full of jingling gold coins, ready to spend on your property. It sounds like the start of a bad fairy tale -hey? Maybe because it is.
Traditionally spring has been heralded as the best time to market your property. One of the benefits of living in such a beautiful part of the world is that the Sunshine Coast market is not affected by seasonal demand as some Southern property markets may be. With blue skies and a temperate climate year round, all seasons are good seasons for selling on the Sunshine Coast – even winter, which I think was on a Wednesday this year.
“With blue skies and a temperate climate year round, all seasons are good seasons for selling on the Sunshine Coast”
The simple truth is that pricing is driven by supply and demand and in a market with stock levels at an all-time low, competition is very high for your property. Waiting for the spring market may actually be to your detriment as the people who have believed this myth can glut the market, reducing competition and resulting in a possible lower price for your property.
Success in the property market does not depend on the season, but rather a handful of key factors. The right agent who understands the local area, the right price, the right marketing strategy and sellers who are ready and motivated to sell. These are the non-negotiables you must consider to get your real fairy tale ending when selling your property.
