Some sellers feel that if they have "missed" the spring market, they should wait until September before selling their property; but there are lots of good reasons for marketing your home during the summer months.
For Example: - your house and garden is likely to look its very best with beautiful splashes of colourful flowers and plants. The bright days and long evenings mean that your home will look light and airy, and any views from the house will be accentuated. All of these factors will add real value to the purchaser's perception of your home. If it is a family house, children's slide/swings etc. can only make the house feel more like a home - a real hot button for the family buyer.
Longer evenings also mean that the opportunity for positive viewings is extended, as partners can view properties together.
Serious buyers do not let holidays, sports, etc. get in their way and are sometimes frustrated by the reduction in choice, as other sellers withdraw their homes. Those with children may be under some pressure to secure a property before the new school year and, as a result, could be prepared to pay a high price in return for a swift purchase.
September is also a popular time for those moving jobs. Purchasers will certainly hope to move in towards the end of the summer so they can get the move out of the way before putting all their energies into their new job.
