Should you market your home before Christmas?

First Brexit, then Trump and now… putting your house on the market BEFORE Christmas … has the world finally lost the plot?

Well maybe not, as the folks at Rightmove have informed us that, last year, the visitor figures for Rightmove over the Christmas period saw an increase of 225%:

On the big day itself, instead of sitting down and playing trivial pursuit or watching the Queen’s speech, apparently nearly a million of us were looking at new properties, perhaps dreaming of the perfect family home.  As New Year’s day rolled around, the traffic numbers jumped up to nearly 2 million visitors to the site and on the first working day of 2016 over 3 million of us were searching for a new home.

We’re not trying to add to your Christmas ‘to-do-list’, but if you’re wanting to make the move in 2017 don’t wait till the New Year –  act now and give us a call at Robert Leech as soon as possible. We’ll do all the hard work for you and ensure you’re launched onto the market with the professionalism you’d expect from us, ready for the bumper batch of buyers over the Christmas Period.  Now, back to the really important decisions; what to buy Steve from accounts for his secret santa gift.
