‘Tis the season to be jolly… (and also a great time to sell your house)

Contrary to popular belief the extended Christmas season could well be one of the best times of the year to capture the right buyer.  After all what could be more appealing than a crackling log fire, a beautifully decorated Christmas tree and the smell of that upmarket pot pourri wafting throughout the house!  Even if the skies are grey and the gardens are looking rather sad everything else will look positively rosy – after all estate agents don’t stop selling houses just because Christmas is round the corner!  Get ahead of the competition who are waiting for the early spring bulbs to flower and you could well be on your way to moving in good time before Easter.

In this modern age of high tech mobile devices most folk who dutifully sit down after their generous turkey lunch to watch the Queen’s speech can’t help but multi-task and find themselves surfing the net on their new gadget.  Rightmove reported over one million visits on Christmas Day last year with the momentum increasing into the New Year with 110 million hits in January!  Christmas is not only about families being together celebrating the festive season collectively but it is also a time when plans are formulated for the coming months and what better time to ensure your property is out there for all to view – why keep it under wraps and risk missing out?
