>Market your home over Xmas

Wandsworth & SW London Homeowners!!

For those of you who have a property to sell, would you market it over the festive period?

For most the answer would probably be no for obvious reasons, but on reflection its not such a bad idea according to Rightmove as December the 27th is the peak time for buyers looking on their portal website!!

Yes it sounds bizarre who would want to view a property over the festive period its traditionally a quiet time of year as many agents would attest. However, this isn't the point, this is more about getting yourself ready from the upturn of buyer enquiries over the festive period.

According to Rightmove, the number of buyer enquiries during the Christmas period is usually high. In fact, Rightmove claims that its visits over the Christmas period were its busiest ever with what it calls ‘buyer demand’ up 23% compared to the same time a year earlier. The number of new sellers coming to market was also up by 21% on Boxing Day, compared to December 26, 2020. This was the highest number of new sellers on Boxing Day Rightmove has ever recorded. 

With an upward trend of buyer enquiries - why would you wait - when keen house hunters are looking to buy over the festive period? 

The advantage of marketing now is to capture a bigger audience over the festive period. Lots of properties come onto the market in January, so yours being marketed by December 27th with viewings after New Year's day, puts you one step ahead of the competition. Put your property ahead of the competition by capturing a bigger buyer audience now!!
