When is the best time to sell your property?

Spring and autumn were the traditional selling windows. In July and August most were at the beach and enjoying some time off, but house hunters can now search 24/7, with property alerts pinging through work days, weekends and holidays.

.

Though a sale is possible any time, the calendar month can still shape competition, buyer psychology and ultimately your bottom line.

As we quickly approach September and the back to school brigade leaving the memories of those summer holidays behind us for another year, house hunters focus begins to sharpen in on the market once again.

We expect to see a slight rise in stock levels during September and October but not at a sufficient level to satisfy the local demand.
So, in answer to the question above, now is a good time to sell.

Demand has never been so high and with limited properties available prices are particularly strong.

PREPARATION

The key element in capturing the autumn market successfully is preparation. Start to prepare your property for sale now, if you have not already begun.
Initially high-quality images and video will attract people to click your link. Take advantage of the bright September days to get good quality photographs and videos in the bank for when you launch to the market.

Speak to your solicitor now. Is the title of the property correct, does it comply with planning, and are the maps/boundaries correct?

As soon as you find your buyer, you want to be in a position to advance the sale as quickly as possible, so having your documentation in place is key.

The most important period in any sale is the first two weeks as activity is hottest then. Your property is ‘new’ to the market. It is vital that it is presented correctly with good quality images and video and a strong social media presence.

When it comes to listing your property, time is money. Pick a time when buyers are focused and your property looks its best.

Sales are being agreed in record time at present. If you are considering selling your home, don’t miss the boat, contact us now. We would be delighted to talk to you and advise you in the best way possible.

Buyers, keep an eye out for some new attractive listings over the next few weeks.

Antoinette Cunningham who retired last week from An Garda Síochána and the Association of Garda Sergeant’s and Inspector’s as their General Secretary started her career 33 years ago in Killarney.

Sergeant In charge at Killarney Garda Station Dermot O’Connell paid tribute to her achievements and her unrelenting commitment to improving the policing environment.

As a former Chairman, Secretary and delegate of the Kerry Branch, Sergeant Dermot O’Connell worked closely with Antoinette in AGSI for many years.

“Her support for members of the Association was second to none. Antoinette always pursued what was right and just. Her ability, knowledge and professionalism was acknowledged both internally and externally by other representative bodies and also professional bodies,” he said.

“When Antoinette arrived here at her first station, the late Jack McGrath was the Sergeant In Charge.”
“As many know Sergeant Jack McGrath frequently walked the beat. During this time Jack shared much of his experience with Antoinette who proved her ability as a competent Garda to Sergeant Jack McGrath. “
“Jack was very impressed by her ability even at that early stage, he always spoke highly of Antoinette and followed her career path with great interest.”

Antoinette subsequently transferred to Limerick (Roxboro Road and Mayorstone Garda Stations). As a Sergeant she moved to the Garda College and completed a Master’s Degree in Adult Learning and a BA in Training and Education.
In 2021 Antoinette was honoured by University Galway with an Alumni Award for her significant contribution in the field of policing.

She became the first female member to serve with the Association of Sergeants and Inspectors at Branch level, National Executive level, President, Deputy General Secretary and finally General Secretary.

“On behalf of the Kerry Branch of AGSI I wish Antoinette the very best in whatever the future holds for her and her family,” added Sergeant O’Connell.
