If you’re thinking of selling or letting in the New Year you
may want to consider getting your property on the market sooner than you think.
The Christmas period is one of the busiest times for online
activity and property searches.
To take advantage of the millions of people who search for
property whilst they have time off over the Christmas period, get your property
details ready and launch them onto the market by mid-December.
Rightmove has consistently reported huge viewing figures
over the Christmas and New Year period in recent years, with over a million
people visiting their site on Christmas Day and three million people visiting
on the first working day of the year.
Samuel Blastock, assistant lettings manager for Goadsby Chandlers
Ford said: “The huge number reported by Rightmove are extremely encouraging,
sellers and landlords who would usually wait for the New Year should seriously
consider placing their property on the market before Christmas to capitalise on
the increased activity on sites such as Rightmove whilst their competition are
dragging their heels.”
Chris Pickard, branch manager, also adds, “We have seen
great success in the past with this strategy and launching your property with
an open day scheduled in January could be a very productive approach to maximising
viewing numbers and achieving your asking price”.
