Many people think that trying to move house over the Christmas period is a big mistake, but in this article we would like to share with you some of the many reasons that this is no longer the case. If you can make your home visible online during the Christmas period, you could be surprised at just how well this could work out for you.
People have lots of free time over the Christmas period; they are often off work for longer than usual. They are also spending more times in their home and with their family, they have the motivation for a change in the New Year and this makes the Christmas period a great time to sell or buy a home.
By making your home visible on all major property portals like Rightmove over the Christmas period you will see your property gets a lot more interest than it could at other times of the year.
Property portals show that there is a massive spike in properties being viewed on Boxing Day.
However, if you are selling your home over the Christmas period you won’t need to worry about us calling you as you’re in the middle of celebrating, opening presents or eating dinner.
We know that Christmas is a busy time for families so we operate a ‘Do Not Disturb’ policy. This allows potential home buyers to click on your property through Rightmove and our website, but not view the property until the home seller is available and wanting people to view their property. In some cases this could be into the New Year.
Once Christmas Day is done, the turkey is eaten, presents unwrapped, chocolate consumed in mass and the Queen has done her speech, people will often turn to their mobile devices and start looking at properties on line.
Where could they be living this time next year?
Christmas time is when people are joined by families and this can often lead to decisions of moving closer to these family members, or in some cases, further away from them. On Boxing Day your property is viewed because people are still on ‘holiday mode’ and want to make changes for their future.
While Rightmove claim that Boxing Day is their busiest day of the year, we would certainly agree here at Letters Group.
