Thinking of Selling a property after Christmas?
Thu 01 Dec 2016
If you are planning on marketing your property for sale after Christmas & New Year, it’s probably because you want to get the mayhem out of the way first, after all, keeping your house in show home condition at this time of year isn’t going to be easy.
Is this actually the right thing to do?
The Christmas and New Year period is one of the busiest times of year for property searches on the major property portals.
There are over 1.6m visits to property portals between Christmas Eve and Boxing Day as home-hunters escaped from the cycle of opening presents, cooking food, eating food, and slumping down in front of a movie and the Queen’s speech.
Clearly you don’t want people viewing during these times, and they probably wouldn’t want to view, but can you afford to not put your property in front of those potential buyers?
Here’s what to do:
Book your market appraisal now. We will discuss a marketing strategy and launch onto the market on the 21st December but start viewings, during the 2nd or 3rd week in January.
This way, you get the best of both worlds, your house gets seen by the HUGE amount buyers looking to kick start their property search in the New Year and you get quality time with your loved ones over the festive season… perfect.
So, if you’re thinking of selling your property either before or just after Christmas, get in touch now and we will produce a bespoke marketing strategy to ensure you receive optimum price.
Call us (we are open 8 – 8 Monday to Friday and until 4 at the weekends) or message us to arrange an appointment.
