Get ready for the New Year Rush

We anticipate the New Year bringing a rush of people looking to buy and sell.

As the Stamp Duty deadline continues to draw closer, we advise buyers and sellers to act quickly as the race is on to complete on property sales and purchases before it’s too late. It may seem unusual to some to sell a house over the festive period, however, the property market is very much still active.

The table below from our friends at Rightmove shows the doubled increase in traffic they saw between Boxing day 2019 and the first working day of January 2020.  People have more free time and motivation to browse the property portals for the New Year, so it can be a great time to buy and sell.

Shifting COVID-19 rules can be difficult to keep up with. However, our agents are up to date with the latest in health and safety regulations to always put your safety and wellbeing first.

Many sellers hold off until after the New Year and miss out on the busy online searching that takes place between Christmas and New Year. It is also a great time to take advantage of our special seasonal selling rates.

Please call our offices today for more information.
