Market your property this Christmas

01.12.15

We know, sounds crazy! Right?

Well, Rightmove seem to think it’s a splendid idea; especially being as, last year, they had over one million visitors to their website on Christmas Day alone, and it appears that millions of property hunters visit the site throughout the whole Christmas period. It seems that, as soon as the dinner’s been eaten and the Queen’s speech is over, people jump straight back into the property search. Perhaps it’s because the Christmas period is actually the only free time they have had to have a proper look at the market. Or, maybe they feel that they make their best decisions after a couple of glasses of mulled wine. Either way, the statistics show that December and January are not as quiet as you may think, and that it may just be a great idea to pop your property on the market for the festive season.

When you think about it, it makes sense to get your property out there for people to look at over the festive period, when everyone is home from work and generally not as busy as usual. People tend to just find themselves half watching what’s on TV and half browsing through properties for sale on Rightmove and Zoopla. Well, it makes sense to us, anyway.

If you are considering putting your property up for sale, simply contact us to arrange for a visit from our Sales Director for a valuation. Similarly, if you have a property to rent out, our Lettings Manager will provide you with an estimation on rental income and guide you through marketing the property through us.
