Thinking Of Selling In 2019? Here’s How To Get One Step Ahead

Christmas is just a few short days away and most of us will either be rushing around the shops to pick up the last minute presents or grabbing the last pack of pigs in blankets from the supermarket shelves, but there is something else that most people do at this time of year, and it’s an important thing to think about if you are considering selling your property.

Most people are planning on taking a few days off work, eating, drinking, celebrating and putting their feet up at home.

And there’s the important bit, putting their feet up at home.

This might not sound like it has much to do with marketing your house, but the chances are once the presents have been opened, the Christmas dinners been eaten and the Queen’s speech is over for another year, those people will be sat on the sofa with their phone, tablet or laptop in hand and will be scrolling through the pages of Rightmove and other property portals.

We all love a good nosey at properties that are for sale, it’s a natural human habit, but over Christmas and into the New Year, the amount of searches on the majority of portals increases by a huge number.

Last January Rightmove recorded a record number of people visiting the site, 141 million to be precise! So why not take advantage of the increased activity and be ready to go before the rush of New Year property hits the portals.

It could well be worth your time to have your property valued, have the measurements and floor plans done and get the brochure and website listing drafted and approved now, meaning you are a step ahead come January 1st.

Being market ready means you can start advertising your property for sale whenever you wish, letting you relax and enjoy Christmas, safe in the knowledge that you can start your new adventure with just the click of a button and be the first house to the market when the January rush begins!
