Is Christmas a Good Time to put my House on the Market?

"When should I put my house on the market?"


It’s a question we get asked on a regular basis, and as with many things surrounding property sales there is no easy answer!


But there is a common school of thought that now is not a good time to be looking to move because “no-one looks for houses over Christmas”.


Not true!


Did you know that one of the busiest days of the year for online searches, typically on Rightmove and OnTheMarket, is December 27th?


So if you are looking to move in the new year, you need to get your property ready for marketing now, with the aim to list it on Rightmove just after Christmas.


It’s a clever tactic because lots of people will wait until January before contacting estate agents to start the ball rolling, but if you can launch your property in that “downtime” between Christmas and New Year you will be ahead of the pack.


After all, those house-hunters will be chomping at the bit to get viewing as soon as they can after the Christmas break and you want your house to be top of their list.
