Unexpected buyers over Christmas

Christmas is already in sight and it might be tempting to assume the market will slow down and that it might be best to wait until the New Year before selling.

However, year on year we see an increase in the number of buyers registering with us to find their new home during November and December. Also, over Christmas we always see a huge spike of buyer activity, as people who are anticipating a move in the New Year start to spend their “time out” browsing for properties. They inevitably fall in love with one of our beautifully presented instructions sooner than expected, so our viewing figures over Christmas aren’t bad either!

We certainly recommend that you avoid falling into the trap of waiting until the Spring to sell. The sheer volume of properties flooding on to the market at the same time in March and April can create an imbalance of supply over demand and prices can actually weaken. Serious buyers are still very active over Christmas, when their time off work allows them to view more properties.

It is now less than 6 weeks until the big day, so if you are thinking of selling in the New Year or even waiting until the Spring, why not bring it forward a few weeks and take advantage of this surprisingly buoyant time of year. You will then be in a strong position to take advantage of increase in supply early next year, taking your pick of the properties available safe in the knowledge that you secured yourself a buyer when the competition was at it lowest.
