Thinking of selling a property after Christmas? Here’s why you should consider going on the market before

27/11/2017

If you are planning on marketing your property for sale after Christmas & New Year, you’re probably thinking this to get the madness out of the way first, after all, keeping your property in show home condition at this time of year isn’t going to be easy. But is that that the best approach to take ?

 

The Christmas and New Year period is one of the busiest times of year for property searches on the major property portals.

 

According to Rightmove last year

 

"There were over 1.6m visits to rightmove.co.uk between Christmas Eve and Boxing Day as home-hunters escaped from the cycle of wrapping presents, opening presents, cooking food, eating food, and slumping down in front of a movie and the Queen’s speech"

 

Clearly you won’t want people coming to view your property during these times, and they probably wouldn’t want to view either, but can you afford to not put your property in front of those potential buyers ?

 

We Recommend...

 

Having your property professionally photographed at the beginning of December, then list it live onto the market on the 20th 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.
