Right now South Australia’s event calendar is at its peak. Adelaide’s biggest motor race for 10 years in a row, the Clipsal 500 has just finished, The Fringe Festival with The Garden of Unearthly Delights is in full flight, The Adelaide Festival of Arts is commencing and WOMADelaide is just around the corner! We’re experiencing the ‘Festival Season’.
While this is a perfect time for locals to be out and about experiencing the Arts scene, the real win for SA is these events are a huge draw card for interstate and overseas visitors. This is fantastic as it gives our local economy a huge boost and very importantly, exposes your property to a lot more potential purchasers who are out and about, getting to know our great state.
Many vendors are often hesitant to advertise their property during this time, thinking purchasers will have ‘better things to do’. The reality is that people are out and about, not home doing chores, so make the most of it! While a lot of the boys were at Clipsal last weekend, the girls were out doing the initial house hunt. If more cars on the road and heavier traffic is frustrating you during this time look at the positive side… your home is potentially being viewed by more buyers driving past.
There’s no time like to present to put your home on the market. Over the next few weeks show off your property to all the locals enjoying their weekends and the visitors who are thinking of an investment or an interstate move. After all, what better way to fill in time before going to see a Fringe show than looking through a property?
