Why Is September a Home Selling Sizzler?


The property market in the Midlands has been very active since the first lockdown ended.

And even through the traditionally quieter months of July and August, it’s been ticking over.

Now we are expecting a September home selling surge. Why?

Well, a couple of factors make September a wise time to put your home on the market.

They are:

  • Schools are back. With the kids back to school, many people start their search for a new home. And while getting in before Christmas may be challenging due to a backlog in the conveyancing (the legal side of selling a property), many are now looking to move by early 2023.
  • With the summer holidays over, the minds of people thinking of buying are more focused on their future moves. This makes mid-September a great time to put your home up for sale to capture the opportunity of all those potential buyers.

These four tips will help you hit the ground running in September if you are considering selling.

  1. Get three agents around now to give you a valuation based on comparable evidence (this is a very important point).
  2. Prepare all the paperwork required to sell a home (we can help with this).
  3. Sort out any odd jobs around your home that might put people off. You’d be surprised how off-putting potential buyers find even the smallest of unfinished jobs/repairs.
  4. Don’t be shy/afraid to ask any of the agents you’ve called to explain their plan to sell your home and why they are the best option for you.
