DO NOT fret if you’re trying to sell your home as the tinsel’s going up. There are some little known advantages to selling through Christmas and New Year.

With the holiday period being up to ten days, many people have more free time to start searching the housing market web sites and view properties.

There are usually less properties on the market over the festive period, meaning motivated buyers will have fewer prospects to tempt them.

Make the most of the fact you’re one of a special few.

The rental market gets busy at this time of year. Tenancies are coming to an end and people are working out their next step – it’s often time for a new place to rent, or, for many, time to finally buy. Catch them while they’re in transit.

With less work and more merriment, people generally feeling happier and more relaxed over the holidays.

When buyers are cheery, they’re in a better mood to negotiate and more likely to act. The process should be easier on all parties.

If you are planning to put your property on the market, take action before the New Year or if your property hasn’t had many viewings, give some thought to altering your current asking price or discussing fresh marketing ideas with your agent, for example new pictures. Good Luck!
