House prices get festive!
At this moment, you’re probably thinking more about turkey, tinsel and those TV ads more than putting your house on the market. But the season’s property market trends will probably surprise you…
Rightmove records bumper house-hunting figures in the time between Christmas Day and New Year.
This steady increase in activity over the festive period completely dispels the myth that you should wait until the New Year to sell. In fact, this is prime time to be getting a head start on the January influx of competition!
It stands to reason that, once the presents are opened and the Christmas pudding has been eaten, with time on their hands and a new year on the horizon, house-hunters would take the opportunity to browse the market. However, they’re often met with a lack of options, with sellers holding back until January. If your property is amongst those available, you’re bound to get a higher level of attention than at a more crowded time.
So, if you are thinking about selling your home in 2018, now’s the best time to get started.
