Thinking about putting your house on the market before Christmas but think it’s the wrong time? Think again.
Although we know that Christmas is probably going to be a bit different this year, one thing’s for sure is that there will still be lots of people going online over the holiday period, whether to search for a few post-Christmas bargains, something to spend their present money on or, for many, to find a new home – and we’ve got evidence to prove this.
Last year the property portal, Rightmove, recorded 150 million visitors to its website in the days after Christmas and, at Your Move, we saw similar spikes in online activity with an incredible 1m visitors to our website from Boxing Day and into the New Year (*).
It’s for that reason that, if you are thinking about selling, now might be the perfect time to do so to get ready for the post-Christmas homebuyers boom and to take advantage of Your Move’s support because, despite the current challenges being faced, we’re committed to ‘getting the UK moving safely’.
For example, as well as ensuring our normal lines of communication remain open, you can still visit our branches – with a pre-booked appointment – and get face to face advice from our local teams and information about the great marketing packages we offer. To support sellers we’ve also introduced safe valuation processes, 360° virtual viewings for buyers as well as advice and guidance on what should happen at physical property viewings, whether conducted by you, as a seller, or by one of our colleagues. We’ve even got videos’ to explain our approach, as our special Coronavirus section shows, as well as a special Q&A that sellers might also find useful.
And, the advantage of being a large national brand, is that we also have a specialist team in place meaning, unlike many agents, we’re able to continually monitor developments so we can quickly and effectively respond to changes that may be introduced in relation to Covid-19 and ensure the marketing and sale of your property can continue, whatever.
So, whilst you might not get everything you want for Christmas this year, you can get a head start in selling your property with the help of Your Move and, let’s hope, the chance to make the start of 2021, a much happier one.
