Beat the Back to School Sales Rush!The month of August is one of the quietest times of year in the property industry.As a large chunk of South East London and indeed the UK's population makes a dash to the coast or jumps on a plane to chase the sun, the market goes on holiday too.Many people thinking of selling their homes wait until September before calling in agents to give them valuations.However, there's a very strong case for making plans for your property while the sun shines and beating the back to school rush.We always recommend people call us in before September. Mid August is a great time to do it. Why? Well to get your property ready for market isn't a five minute job.To do it properly, like we do at Benjamin Matthews Estate Agents, takes a little bit more time. A professional photographer needs to visit and capture your home in its best light.Floor plans and accurate descriptions need to be drawn up and uploaded on all of the powerful property portals. Interested buyers on our database need to be notified – all of this gives your property an edge if it's done before the September rush.By having your property ready to be marketed from the 1st of September you will be two to three weeks ahead of people putting their homes on the market after the summer break. You'll be ahead of the game.This can be the difference between your home standing out or being just one of many hitting a crowded market when the kids have gone back to school in late September or early October.Please feel free to give us a call today and beat the post holiday back to school sales rush.Thanks for reading,Ben,Want to get a SOLD or LET sign outside your property quicker?
