New Year New Home? Why Wait…

It’s nearly that time of year again, the festive adverts have started on the telly (already!) and thoughts are drifting towards the oncoming Christmas. Traditionally now is the final push for those already in the process of moving to get everything in place ready to be in their new homes before Christmas, but what if you are just thinking of making a move? Wait it out until the New Year right?

Not necessarily.

Why wait? Now is a great time to get your property valued, get it clean, tidy and ready for photographing without the added pressure of discarded Christmas trees, bins full of wrapping paper and all those extra Christmas presents cluttering up the place!

With all those people potentially waiting until the New Year to get their houses up on the market, there is likely to be less competition for those who take the plunge early and get marketing now. And whilst the supply of properties coming to the market may be lower, we have found that the demand from potential buyers is as strong as ever!

In fact here at Hannells, between the 1st of October 2017 and the 1st of January 2018, we instructed sales on 390 properties for a combined value of over £68,000,000! That’s hundreds of people who definitely didn’t wait!

And if you do decide you don’t want to actively market your property until after the Christmas period, we can have all your details ready, your brochure looking lovely and a list of potential viewers ready and waiting for you! Giving you a great advantage over anyone waiting until the New Year.

So call your local Hannells Branch now and let’s have a chat about how we can kick start your moving experience! Or why not click HERE to book your valuation!
