March could be the month to move

March 02, 2023

Leading property portal Rightmove has suggested that March is the best month to sell your home.

According to Rightmove, March frequently coincides with a rise in homes available on the market, often the highest number in the year. What’s more, there are more properties on the market now than there were in 2022.

So much choice impacts the housing market, creating vast interest from potential buyers and leading to added opportunity for sellers.

If you’re a homeowner thinking of selling your home, by placing your property on the market now you will benefit from optimal online exposure. March enquiries from buyers are typically at their peak, meaning there could be several potential buyers competing for your property. Your property is likely to attract more enquiries, more viewings and possibly an increased amount of offers.

Those looking to buy a new property would benefit from being financially prepared. If your home is already sold stc when you make an offer, the purchase funds will be more readily available, giving your offer far more appeal.

For first-time buyers, with mortgage availability now on the increase, this could be the perfect time to act. It’s best to have a prospective mortgage agreed with your lender before making an offer on a property.
