Why List in January?

With the New Year fast approaching, if you have been thinking of selling, January is a very opportune time to do so. Why?

• Peak Tourist Time – the Sunshine Coast enjoys masses of tourists both intra and interstate in January, many holiday in the Coolum/Mount Coolum/Yaroomba/Marcoola area, and some love it here so much they make a decision to relocate…this is certainly not a ‘new story’, there are many instances of this, and in this mindset they will often actively visit open-for-inspections whilst holidaying.

• It’s mid-summer and a fabulous time to showcase your home’s amazing alfresco entertaining area, sparkling pool and desirable aspect…you can style your home to look sensational, with ‘lifestyle’ the focus.

• The festive season is over, and everyone starts to focus again on the year ahead – many resolutions and plans are made, and for some people this involves a move, and in fact, this is a genuine phenomenon with statistics revealing that January has the highest level of online property searches in most years…you want to make sure your property is online in this period.

• There is sometimes less stock in January, as the well-priced stock gets sold in Spring, and the leftover stock is now looking a little stale to active buyers – less stock can create a greater sense of urgency in decision making for buyers.
