List Your Property For Sale In Time For The Christmas Rush!
Christmas is fast approaching and you are beginning to think....we need more space! Or you have too much space and need to downsize. So your thoughts creep towards the subject of, should we move in the new year? If this is you, then my best advice would be to list your property now!
Property search portals have their highest volume of web traffic over Christmas Day and Boxing Day. It sounds crazy but if you are thinking of moving then no doubt you will be part of that browsing traffic too. The important factor of this is to make sure your property is available for all potential buyers to see within this surge of activity over the Christmas period.
I know what you are thinking, you have too much to do and busy Christmas shopping but why leave this opportunity to pass by. Ok so another reason is, you already put your Christmas decorations up. See this as a positive, does your home look warm and inviting with a spruced Christmas tree draped in twinkling lights and shiny baubles? Of course it does, it is the time of year when home is where you want to be and buyers will be in the same mindset. But you want their new home to be your old home.
There are many aspects of selling a property and you don't want to leave any to chance. Sometimes the smallest of additions can make a difference and it only takes a quick visit from your agent to take new photographs once all the festive cheer is put away.
