Selling your home in the summer

Posted August 8th 2022

Why you should sell in the summer

Longer days, lighter nights, and blue skies. Summer is a great time to put your home on the market, showing it off at its best! Here are our top 5 reasons why you should sell in the summer.


The weather is on your side making your property look its best. Great photographs sell houses and when it comes to lighting, you can’t beat the summer sun. Everything looks better in natural light – it makes rooms look brighter and bigger and shows off gardens and views to their best advantage.  Most buyers look online first so quality photographs taken in the summer will make your home stand out online.

Summer Holidays

It is true that the six weeks of school summer holidays can be quieter as many jet off on holiday. However, extra time off also can give people space to think about their home and any possible shortcomings. It’s the perfect time for a homeowner to start browsing properties online and viewing them in person.

Kerb appeal

First impressions count! Whether it’s your online listing or a personal viewing, the first thing someone will see of your property is the exterior. A home with flowers in bloom and green foliage will always look more impressive than bare branches and a muddy lawn.

More time to view

Longer daylight hours, the more time you have for viewings. The lighter nights are perfect for working professionals to view your home after a day at work.


The warmer weather allows you to open the windows and blinds, allowing the maximum amount of light into your home to show off your space. Having the windows open will also allow air into the property creating a feeling of freshness.
