Selling a house in Donegal depends on many more variables than the time of year but Spring is always a popular choice for vendors.

If you are thinking of moving this year, Spring is a great season for putting homes on the market.

And with Sherry FitzGerald Rainey’s free property valuation, we can help put you in the strongest possible position this season.

Selling your home in Spring has traditionally tended to yield great results. It lacks winter’s distraction of Christmas and summer’s holiday season when buyers can often be out of the market.

The longer daylight hours and improved weather between March and June give the vendor a great chance to showcase their property and provide buyers with a perfect opportunity to view.

For buyers it’s a great time to settle on a purchase ahead of the school holidays, allowing plenty of time to complete the transaction, make the move and get the children settled in their new home ahead of the new school year.

Spring brings a whole new seasonal light. Nature, it seems, is doing its best to lend sellers a helping hand.

We’ve blogged previously on a few simple steps to increase the value of your home. Spring is the perfect season to put these into effect.

Upping the kerbside appeal of your home is key – fresh leaves on the trees and flowers in bloom will add to the appeal but be sure to spruce up all aspects of the garden.

The outside of your home is the first thing would-be buyers will see so make sure it’s at its full potential.

Inside, it’s time for the Spring clean – your chance to make sure your home is attractive as possible to potential buyers. Make your home as spacious as possible, and if it’s time for a refresh then get the paint brush out.
