Is Christmas a good time to sell your home?

‘Tis the season to sell…maximising property portals during the festive period.

With endless to-do lists (gift planning, buying and wrapping, the school discos and food prep to name _just_ a few!) the last thing on your mind may be buying or selling a home. However, reports show that Boxing Day emerges as the busiest day of the year for property searches. The turkey has been devoured, the kids are busily playing with their new toys and your in-laws have finally left. It’s time to take in a deep breath, exhale, and think about the new year to come.

According to Rightmove, they recorded a 23% rise in buyer demand in 2022 compared to the previous year. They have also recorded their busiest ever Boxing Day for site and app visits!

If selling your home is a 2024 goal, leveraging property portals during the festive period can set you on the right road for success.
