Midsummer Sunshine

  • This week marks the summer solstice, the longest day of the year. Making the most of the longer days, the housing market sees property sell faster in June than in any other month of the year.
  • Based on the time a property is listed to when it goes under offer, analysis of the past five years of data from the Rightmove index indicates that property sells on average within 59 days in the month of June.
  • This is more than ten days quicker than property across the winter months, December to February.
  • In daylight hours, the summer solstice is 8 hours, 49 minutes longer than the December solstice.
