Is there a perfect time to sell your house? Apparently so! A sunny Wednesday at 1.51pm is the time, according to recent research from Privilege Insurance.
The month of March is also the most popular month in the year to make your house sale.
Besides the time of the day and week, there are other tactics that you can use to sell a property the research reveals. A good tidy up comes in at the top by four in ten of us (38%). Other selling tricks include buying fresh flowers to brighten up a space (12%), making sure pets are kept outside (9%) and ensuring that noisy children are also kept away (8%).
Previous Office of National Statistics figures (2018) show that two million of house owners will even turn to baking bread to help induce a sweet aroma to entice prospective buyers.
Christian Mendes, Head of Privilege Home Insurance, said: “Selling a home can be a very stressful ordeal, so it’s great to see we have found the time when people are most likely to sell their home.
“However, it’s important not to underestimate the impact of small home improvements such as a lick of paint, or a new piece of art on the walls, which can make all the difference when it comes to the finer details.
“On the day people are due over to view, the fine aroma of freshly baked bread, or just-brewed coffee can be the ultimate clinchers to help seal the deal too – so it’s definitely worth going the extra mile.”
