It’s well known that people are usually put off selling their home during the winter season, perhaps due to not having the time to spend contacting estate agents in what is already a very busy and sometimes stressful time or the belief that there will be a lack of interest.
However, statistics show that there is an overall 20% increase in people looking for their dream home between Christmas Eve and the New Year, with Boxing Day being the peak day reaching a 21% increase in visits to Rightmove.
The question is, how important is it to get your house on the market before the New Year? Rightmove had a record 21 million more visits to their website in January 2016 than the same period in 2015, reaching 127 million views overall. So, having your property on the market during the Christmas period, when everyone is unwrapping fancy new iPad’s, phones and tablets could mean lots of interest and lead to the sale of your property quicker than Father Christmas can get back to the North Pole!
Making sure it looks fabulous before going on to the market will, as ever, increase your chances of a speedy sale. Contact Elaine today on 01332 987740/07967636718 to arrange a consultation.
