Why It’s Important To Know When To Sell
There are many personal factors that will determine when the best time will be to sell your property. Of course, we will be able to work through these with you, but we will also be keeping a keen eye on external factors. It’s important to be aware of these things for two main reasons - they will, in part, determine the price of your Leamington Spa property and how long it will take to sell.
Price - Our valuation will give you an accurate, well-informed asking price, allowing you to plan for your next living arrangements.
Speed - In some cases, a quick sale is required, when asking ‘Is it a good time to sell a house’ we need to be aware of your preferred timescale.
When Is It A Good Time To Sell A House?
It is a good time to sell a house when…
You can benefit from the patterns of the property market - The market rises and falls for many reasons, but it tends to keep following the same patterns year after year - some months are busier, some quieter. If you can get your property on the market to take advantage of these peaks and troughs your sale will be a success!
The market is stable - Although the market follows these fluctuations, there are other factors that will determine how prices and demand change, government policy for example. You should aim to sell when the market is quite settled.
There is high demand - When more people are looking for a house at a certain time in your local area, your sale will be faster and you will also be more likely to achieve, if not exceed, your asking price! This is good news for Leamington Spa property owners…

The Spring Rush - Every spring we see the market burst to life just as the fauna and flora do! This is a very busy period for us and something that you should take advantage of if possible! Learn more about why springtime brings a boost here.

"It has truly been a pleasure dealing with your colleagues who assisted in our purchase of 23 Beverley Road and the sale of 39 Brookhurst Road. This customer experience (including when we purchased 39 Brookhurst Court last year) has undoubtedly given us the confidence to approach eHB for our future real estate needs. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to Clive, Juliana, Chris and Louise. They were polite and courteous and we were very pleased with the level of professionalism and strong work ethic that they demonstrated at all times. In our experience, we found eHB working to a very high standard of customer care and this, we believe, is the key differentiator that must be maintained by successful companies in a competitive market. Clive, Juliana and Chris invested time in learning about our particular needs and they impressed us with their strong dedication to customer service. Their relaxed and informative style gave us the confidence that our sale and purchases were in safe hands from the outset and, of course, we are totally happy with the outcomes. In particular, they were diligent and meticulous in their approach and we found this to be very reassuring indeed. Your colleagues did an excellent job. We would be grateful if you could convey our heartfelt thanks and appreciation to Clive, Juliana, Chris and Louise. Well done! Kind regards Mushy & Laraine "
