It’s a question we get asked on a regular basis because there is a common school of thought that now is not a good time to be looking to move, seemingly fuelled by the idea that “no-one looks for houses over Christmas”. Not true!
Did you know that one of the busiest days of the year for online searches is typically in the last week of December? So if you are looking to move in the new year, you need to get your property ready for marketing now.
It’s a clever tactic because lots of people will wait until January before contacting estate agents to start the ball rolling, but if you can launch your property in that “downtime” between now and Christmas you will be ahead of the pack!
After all, those house-hunters will be chomping at the bit to get viewing as soon as they can after the Christmas break and you want your house to be top of their list.
Our teams would be delighted to assist by providing free impartial advice and guidance around your home sale.
My team wishes you a very festive Christmas.
