Don't put off house sale until after the election: Estate agents insist spring is still the best time to sell

Sellers should not delay putting their homes on the market until after the General Election, experts say.

Many people are thought to be biding their time due to political uncertainty, but estate agents insist spring is still the best time to sell — warning that those who miss the boat may have to wait until autumn for a buyer.

Summer is traditionally the most difficult time as many buyers are on holiday.

Clare Betteridge, director at RFR Property, says although the June 8 poll is unsettling, the market will thrive in spring and autumn.

'Homes look their best at this time of year, which attracts offers,' she says.

Robin Chatwin, who is head of South-West London Savills, says: 'Spring has always been a good time to sell your home and I can't see many advantages in delaying if you want to move.

'And buyers want to take advantage of the cheap mortgages before rates rise.'
