Is it better to sell before or after Christmas?
If, for some reason, you don’t manage to list in time for Christmas, don’t worry as Boxing Day is also a great time to list your home. In fact, in recent years property sites such as Rightmove and Zoopla have declared it one of their busiest periods as the nation leisurely browses the web and people start planning towards a new year and a potential new home.**
Is December a good time to sell?
December can be a quiet period for the property market, but once Christmas passes it does get much busier – Rightmove consistently attracts over three million visitors on Boxing Day. Smart sellers will use this time to their advantage and of course, we’re here to help you attract as many viewings and potential buyers as possible.
Don't get caught out in the spring rush
It's advisable not to wait until spring – it may seem like a great time to sell but there are disadvantages to listing at this time of year. The trend is for more sellers to list in April, May and June making it more competitive. Plus, sellers often price their properties optimistically due to the heightened activity making it more expensive to buy.
Avoid the uncertainty of 2022
2021 has been a strange year, to say the least! Despite the UK heading towards a return to 'normal, it’s difficult to predict what’s going to happen to the market as a result. For now, all the signs are positive with house prices rising, but it may not last forever. Sell now to take full advantage of the current climate.
