Righmove has calculated that home movers looking to sell before Christmas need to put their house on the market sooner rather than later.

With the onset of autumn fast approaching, Christmas will be here before we know it and the reality is, that with a home move taking on average approximately 91 days, home owners need to think about putting their property on the market as soon as possible if they want to move this year.

Brighten up your home with September sunshine

It’s easy to underestimate the importance of daylight but nobody really wants to view a house in the dark. Potential buyers want to be able to clearly spot any flaws with the property and see it in its true light.

Having longer days also means that more people can view it after work. You don’t need to be a mathematician to realise that more viewings increase the chance of a sale. It’s just a simple numbers game.

There are obvious benefits to seeing a house in daylight. Potential buyers can check out the natural light in the house, see which rooms catch the setting sun and find out if the garden gets any sunshine. This makes it much easier for them to visualise themselves in the space and it makes all the difference for sellers in terms of getting that sale.
