Being savvy when it comes to selling your home, whether you've got another property lined up or you're moving into a retirement home, can make the difference to whether you clinch the sale.
Taking the seasons into account is crucial, according to advice from the National Association of Estate Agents (NAEA).
For example, homes which are energy efficient, such as those with quality insulation can sell faster just after winter.
On the back of a cold winter, home-buyers will be looking for a place which keeps in the heat and on the back of rising utility bills, an impressive Energy Performance Certificate will benefit a sale too.
Statistics show that the spring and summer months are the most popular for buying a new home but the change in weather does not mean that potential buyers won't be thinking about the cold months that will follow.
Another tip from NAEA is if you're showing your house in summer but you have a fantastic space for big winter coats or boots then show it off - take in all weather possibilities into account.
