C&G’s Guide to Selling Property in Spring

When it comes to selling property at auction, timing has a real impact on results - which is why selecting the ideal date should be purpose-built into your marketing strategy. In today’s blog, C&G examine the most important elements to consider when selling property this spring, and provide you with a handy calendar of key dates.

Spring Timing

Spring is often referred to as the selling season in real estate. It is traditionally the time when we see the most property come to market for auction, and is a preferred sales period for many vendors who have decisions to make prior to the end of the year. The warmer days and sunnier weather help to lift the winter blues and motivate purchasers - generally speaking, spring auctions are well-attended as a result. If you are considering selling this season, it is practical to steer clear of school term breaks and public holidays – as these events can impact upon auction day turnout. Remember - regardless of when you choose to sell, the most influential action you can take as a vendor is ensuring that your property is prepared and market-ready.


C&G will assist you with an initial in-depth market appraisal, and if required will provide comprehensive advice about cost-effective cosmetic upgrades may enhance the value of your property. A paint job will lighten and freshen your space, while general maintenance and a professional clean will create a neat and tidy appearance. A fully or partly-styled interior will help your property stand out online and attract your target buyer. A good stylist will work with the existing facade to create a relevant interior that showcases all appealing elements. Spring weather also encourages potential buyers to explore outdoor areas, so if relevant, consider landscaping your garden to increase interest.

Creating a timeline of events helps you stay on track to meet key deadlines and marketing dates.This sense of order around the sale will also help you attract your ideal buyer.
