Is Spring really the best time to sell your home?

I am often asked about when it is the best time to sell a home.  

Most think it is spring.

And yes, it is slightly better but only marginally so. Property Buy

As a summary across all capitals – 21% of sales take place in summer; 26% in autumn; 25% in winter and 27% in spring.

New listings are sometimes higher in spring, than the other seasons, but not always.

Even in ‘holiday’ markets like the Gold or Sunshine Coasts there isn’t much difference between the seasons.

Bigger factors come into play.
