Thinking of selling now or in the New Year?
 
Many people who are thinking of moving at this time of year have one main dilemma, go straight to market or wait until the new year?

Historically the ‘wait until the new year’ option was usually recommended by agents. Get the Christmas and New Year festivities out of the way, get the decorations down, then launch. Although this is still an option there has been a change in house buyers activity, in particular through website search.

With the growth of the major property portals we are experiencing that the Christmas/ New Year holiday periods are becoming one of the busier times on line. Actual viewing figures decline but virtual viewings and click through rates increase. Just because people are on holiday doesn’t mean they stop looking for new instructions and their future new home. In fact they have more time to spend doing so.

The graph below shows the activity through Rightmove over this period last year (2015) with 21,637,677 visitors nationally from Christmas Eve to New Years Day alone
 

At Sinclair we are suggesting 3 options for you to consider –
  1. Book your valuation now. Let us prepare your property particulars, arrange your Energy Performance Certificate (if required) and get you market ready, all before the decorations go up for Christmas. Freeze marketing until the New Year, enjoy the holiday in the knowledge you are ready to go immediately in 2017 giving you the edge over your competition.
 
  1. Book your valuation now. Let us prepare your property particulars, arrange your Energy Performance Certificate (if required), all before the decorations go up. Upload and launch your property before the Christmas break to the major portals including RightmoveZoopla and Prime Location, taking advantage of the activity increase. We will be working in between Christmas and the New Year looking to secure viewings which will be conducted once you are back at work in the New Year, by ourselves if you prefer and in the form of an ‘open house’ if the viewings are in significant numbers.
 
  1. Book your valuation now. Go to market now. There is currently a lack of stock on the market, property prices are strong and we have plenty of time before the holiday period starts to sell your property. You can then hopefully enjoy Christmas knowing that your buyer is in place.
 
There is no one right or wrong option, other than the one that suits you best. All of the options we are offering come with that little extra foresight and preparation in mind. In addition to our strictly no sale/ no fee policy and competitive selling fees, all instructions taken in November and December will benefit from a Rightmove Premium Listing (RRP £250 inc. VAT) offered Free of Charge by ourselves.
