2019 Brings A New Year…And A New Home?

2019 Brings A New Year…And A New Home?

We’ve been looking at the most common New Year’s resolutions that people make each year. A national newspaper recently reported the top 50 New Year’s resolutions and we definitely feel that a few of these can be found on our own lists of resolutions for the New Year!

You won’t be surprised to hear that number one was to exercise more, closely followed by eat more healthily, cut down on alcohol, stop smoking and spending less time on internet and social media sites.

While we are unable to help you with the above resolutions, which are reportedly found in the top 10 resolutions made by most people across the UK, we can help with the resolution that was 14th most popular on everyone’s list last year. This was to move home!

January can be a really good time to put your home on the market, or go house hunting or look for a home to rent. The beginning of the year is a time that people take stock of their lives. They look at where they are in life, what they have achieved over the last year, and what they hope to achieve in the year ahead.

Homeowners know that spring can be a very busy time on the housing market and want to have their homes on the market before it gets congested and ideally sold by this time. It can be very hard for your property to stand out in a crowd in spring, but in January there is much less of a crowd of properties on the market, but far more people looking for properties.

In the spring and summer months we see a lot of ‘window shoppers’ who are thinking about moving house, but then go on holiday, throw themselves back into work, and the house hunt is forgotten. People think about moving house in summer, but often don’t make the move until much later in the year.

Many of the homebuyers we meet in the winter months are serious buyers and we often find homes are sold to them with far less viewings and they are keen to get moving quickly.

If you have ‘move house’ on your list on new year’s resolutions for 2019, then call us now and we can have a chat about the properties we have available that may be of interest to you.
