Why Winter is a Good Time to Sell

A market that continues to perform well despite adverse economic conditions means savvy sellers should consider listing now, rather than wait until spring.
Why Winter is a Good Time to Sell

Keen sellers should take advantage of the current rising housing market to avoid increased competition during the spring selling season.

Core Logic’s Home Value Index rose for the second consecutive month in May, with prices lifting a further 1.2 per cent nationally. This is despite adverse economic conditions such as rolling interest rate rises since April 2022. A further rise this week took the official cash rate to 4.1 per cent.

The local auction market has also regained traction, with clearance rates edging up considerably on last year, along with the number of registered bidders and overall attendance.

The display of market strength is a reminder to sellers to list their properties now, rather than wait until the traditional spring selling period, when you will be selling in competition as more stock comes to market.

Continued unprecedented levels of domestic and international migration to the Gold Coast, and the current severe shortage of housing stock, places sellers in an excellent position to achieve a premium result.
