Spring has sprung for homeowners

08 March 2010

Spring is a time for new beginnings. That’s why it’s the busiest time of the year for estate agent Connells.

Its branches are gearing up for the usual rush of buyers looking for a new home as the weather gets warmer, the clocks go forward and the Easter Bank Holiday approaches.

“Spring is one of the best times of the year to sell property,” says Paul Edgington, Regional Director for Connells. “We always have a flurry of activity around Easter weekend so I recommend that anyone looking to sell this year takes advantage of this and gets their property on the market in good time for our spring rush.

“If the number of buyers registering an interest at our branches so far this year is anything to go by, we are expecting an exceptionally busy spring period,” Paul continues. “We’re now seeing more confidence from buyers, better access to mortgages and this is translating into more sales so now is a great time to market your property.”

As the sun comes out and flowers start to bloom, spring is also advantageous from the seller’s perspective. “Spring flowers and sunshine can help make your property look more appealing,” explains Paul. “Longer days also allow for more viewings in daylight hours so potential buyers get a much better impression of your home.”
