It may seem strange to hear that putting your property up for sale as Christmas is approaching is a good to do! So why is that?
December 2021 moving into January 2022 will be very active months for selling your property and this will be for a number of reasons. Every year at Christmas time property portals such as Rightmove and Zoopla and estate agents like ourselves see huge increases of visitors to our websites during the holiday period.
Rightmove quoted that they see a consistent spike in traffic on Boxing Day year on year.
People have more free time and become motivated to looking forward to bringing in the New Year with the prospective of looking and choosing a new home, and this time of year is time for a lot of people to reflect and decide it is time for change. Remember too, may people have received new gadgets like an Ipad or Tablet as presents so they will be testing them out and for many Rightmove is their go to website for browsing.
Should you decide to put your home up for sale in December then it will need to be listed and visible on all the major property portals which is automatically included within an Edward Mellor property listing.
Get in contact with your local Edward Mellor branch and organise a valuation viewing for as soon as possible. We have appointments for valuations available over the coming weeks, and we can then have your property listed for sale before the Christmas holiday break. (subejct to T&C’s)
Winter months are becoming just as popular as any other month to sell your home. Don’t wait for spring, make it an early New Year’s Resolution and list your property today for sale.
