The benefits of selling your Gold Coast property in summer

By Andrew Bell

While spring is known as peak homebuying season across Australia, there’s no reason to wait for next spring to sell your property. In fact, there are some very real benefits when choosing to sell your Gold Coast property during the summer.

Shopping for a home is simply more enjoyable in good, warm weather, and there’s no better time to showcase your Gold Coast home’s features than on a sunny day. Here are just a few of the many benefits you may enjoy when selling your Surfer’s Paradise property in summer.

Less competition

The Gold Coast market can be a competitive one, which is great news for sellers overall. However, that also means that during the most popular buying and selling months – the spring – there’s fierce competition to sell a property in a flooded market.

Springtime sellers will have to make their properties stand out from the crowd as buyers visit property after property during those months, requiring extra work to entice buyers to commit to a purchase. During summer, however, buyers won’t have as many options to choose from and will be operating in a less chaotic market. There will still be plenty of homes up for sale, but sellers won’t be up against as much fierce competition as they would just a couple of months prior.

Use the summer’s good weather to your advantage when selling your home.

Good weather

There’s nothing like a sunny day to showcase the beauty of a Gold Coast property. Prospective buyers will be able to see the potential for days on the beach in the future, and will be able to envision their lives in a property that’s walking distance from the ocean, with clear views under blue skies.

You probably love the Gold Coast in the summer. Others will, too, and by selling in summer, you’ll be able to give buyers the full Gold Coast experience on a beautiful day.

Showcase ocean views and natural light using summer’s blue skies.

Showcase your entire property

Gold Coast properties shine in the spring and summer, giving you the opportunity to showcase your entire property during these warmer months. Keep your garden watered and maintained when selling, give your outdoor furniture a sprucing up and put your entire property on display. Buyers will be able to picture themselves sitting outside on summer evenings with friends and family, imagine themselves tending to such a picturesque space and coming home after a long day outside enjoying summer weather.

You’ll also be able to use the elements to your advantage to show off your property. If you live in a high rise with large windows that catch the morning or afternoon light, there’s no better time than summer to show off that feature. Similarly, you’ll be able to welcome prospective buyers into a cool environment on hot summer days. Greet them with a cool drink to give them the vision of the comforts of home on hot summer days.

It’s a great way to show off your entire property during the months many move to the Gold Coast to enjoy. It may not be as busy as spring, but with less competition and the elements working for you, summer may just be the right time for you to sell.

No matter the time of year you’re trying to sell, it’s important to work with the right real estate professionals to help you sell your property quickly and with as little stress as possible.
