Our friends at Rightmove have released data that shows property searches doubling over Christmas and New Year!
These trends most likely exist because after Christmas is done and dusted, moving house is the next big thing on people’s ‘to-do list’ and they’re ready to start making plans for the year ahead.
So what does this mean for sellers?
If you’re looking to sell early in 2020, you need to ‘beat the Post-Christmas rush’ and get your property on the market to take advantage of the amount of potential buyers rushing to view properties in the New Year.
There’s no need to panic though, if you instruct us by mid-December, we can get it all sorted by Christmas – putting you in a great position to capitalise on the surge in online viewings.
We can make sure your property looks great online, with premium listings on Rightmove, Zoopla and On The Market, as well as our own website. We offer professional photography and video tours that will stop buyers just ‘scrolling’ past your home.
Traditionally, sellers worry about the festive period being quiet, but often we find that the buyers who are in the market at this time of year are serious about moving and in good buying positions. With over 55 staff across our 5 Shropshire offices, we have the manpower to proactively contact these buyers, deal with large volumes of enquiries during the festive period and accompany viewings whilst you are busy over the Christmas holidays.
