Selling Your House? Don't Wait for the New Year!

Mon 19 Dec 2016

If you’re thinking of entering the property market, our advice is don’t wait until the New Year!

Many think that buyers stop looking at houses during the Christmas period but actually, from our experience, this is the time when people go online to search for a new home.

What the Experts Say 92% of Relocation Agent Network member estate agents, who responded to a December survey, recommend that prospective sellers go to market before the Christmas break. The key reasons identified from the survey were:

1. There’s an increase in the number of people visiting online property websites during this time (as suggested by 50% of survey respondents). So once the dinner has been eaten and the tin of chocolates is being passed around, lots of people spend their time searching online for their dream home.

2. Serious house hunters continue their search over the Christmas period (47% of survey respondents). Don’t miss out on these group of home buyers by waiting until January 2017.

Who Are Relocation Agent Network? A national network of estate agents, Relocation Agent Network is well placed to comment on all-things-property. Each of their members (including Brown & Cockerill) have been handpicked and specially invited to join, after thorough checks identify them as the best estate agent to represent the Network in their local area.
