New Year - good time to sell?

Date Published 10 December 2019

You'd be mistaken in thinking that the property market goes quiet over Christmas but its one of our busiest periods. People assume that Christmastime isn't a good time to market their property but it's a great time to sell. Traffic to property search engines increases massively over New Year, with people using their time off to browse new homes.

If you're looking to instruct an agent & advertise your property in the new year then this is the perfect time. Having your property ready to go will help when you begin advertising in the New Year.
