when is the best time to sell or let your property in sk6?

One of the main questions we are always asked is: when is the best time of year to sell or let a home? While there is no absolute optimum time to put your property on the market, seasonal patterns can affect buying, selling or letting habits.

The summer months saw 25.4% of properties sold in Marple and The Bridge.
