The spike in online searches in the week between Christmas and New Year for consumers looking for a property to buy or rent creates an ideal opportunity for sellers and landlords to list their properties online now and not to wait until the New Year.
Traffic on Rightmove increased 195% between Christmas Day and the first working day of the New Year in 2016/2017 as would-be movers start preliminary searches and the same is expected this Christmas.
The market has changed and gone are the days when November and December were the quietest months of the year. However, a number of sellers and landlords are still waiting until the New Year to list their property online so are missing out on this surge of property searches. We want our clients to get off to a flying start in 2018 by listing with us now in time for the seasonal rush.
