Why November Is A Good Month To Instruct


November. A month of dark evenings, fireworks and bonfires. It’s a month in the property market that can be seen as quiet and uneventful. In reality, that’s far from the truth, with sellers taking advantage of what the month has to offer. Why should I instruct during November, you ask? Here’s why….

Motivation, Motivation, Motivation.

November, unlike earlier months, weeds out the time wasters from the motivated buyers. All the house hunters out there will be serious to move, and move fast. If there is ever a month that indicates quality over quantity, it’s November.

Less Competition

Given the fact that most sellers will wait until the New Year to list their property, listing now means you have the added benefit of having little competition to contend with. Instructing in November gets you ahead of the game, leaving you in prime position to take advantage of serious buyers. After all, to achieve a better price for your home, it's best to market when others are not.

Test the Waters

With potential buyers researching properties in late November/ early December with the intention of viewing over the Christmas holidays, listing in November will enable you to test various prices before the New Year influx begins. Entering the New Year with an accurate price will result in more interest and the potential for a swift sale.
