Winter can also be a good time to sell.

As buyer activity slows during the Winter months, there are many vendors who choose to rest the marketing on their properties over the Winter months, and then look to re-present to the market in Springtime. Whilst this concept has some merit, there can be exceptions to this.

For example, in the current market, there are less than four houses publically listed for sale on the beach side of the Great Ocean Road in Aireys Inlet. Considering that this is one of the most sought after areas along the Great Ocean Road, it would make sense for any vendor in this area to put the property up for sale now. Yes, there will be more buyers looking in Spring, but there will also likely be many more houses for sale in competition as well. Also, there will be many new buyers enter the market in Spring, who won’t necessarily know that the property was for sale through Winter.

Don’t be afraid to be different from the norm. You just might find that you get the price you were seeking in August rather than January.
