If you’re considering a 2020 move, you may want to act now to reach the widest audience of potential buyers this season.
Online viewings peak at this time of year, with many people taking time to relax at home during the Christmas period, spending their free time exploring the online property portals for their next home. What better way to spend Boxing Day?
Leading property portal Rightmove experience roughly 141 million visits every month, but when the Christmas holidays arrive, there is an unprecedented surge in visitor traffic. Last year, their views increased by a whopping 231% between Christmas and New Year’s Day, with momentum continuing throughout January.
Rightmove expect the number of new properties coming to the market to slow down in the lead ip festive season, yet demand remains strong. This presents a clear opportunity for those wishing to optimise their chances of a quick sale, where sellers can act now to get ahead of the competition.
If you’re looking to move early in 2020, you’ll be best placed to have already achieved a sale on your own home, or at the very least have the ball rolling so that you are ready to buy.
“If you want to buy a really special home, you need to be sale ready, so find your own buyer first.”
– Senior Client Manager, Paul Phelan
