Why hitting the property market in winter could prove to be the right move

Savvy home sellers should look to list their property ahead of what is anticipated to be a
busier-than-usual spring market.

Kate Lumby from Lumby Real Estate said there are many advantages to listing in winter due
to continued property price growth and strong buyer demand.

“There tends to be a glut of property coming onto the market once we hit September, but a
better strategy is to go early and get a first-move advantage as there is less competition and
buyers in winter tend to be more serious,” she said.

Lumby Real Estate has been specialising in residential and acreage sales throughout The
Hills and Hawkesbury areas for more than 50 years offering both private treaty and auction
campaigns. The boutique agency has achieved some of Dural’s highest sales results, more
recently 17-19 Vineys Lane and 2 Haven Place.

It can take as little as one week to list a property for sale, giving those currently considering
their options time to get ahead of the crowd.

“The best place to start is having your property appraised and this includes looking at
comparative sales results in your area,” said Ms Lumby, who is a two-time Australian
Auctioneer of the Year Award winner.

Her father Barry, who started the business back in 1968, said he has seen many sellers
waste valuable time and money by leaving their property sitting on the market due to being
overpriced or with the wrong agent.

“It is important to have experience, the right strategy and the right agency behind you so
that you can move on to the next stage of your life.”
