Since people have more free time to look for properties and plan for their New Year, the festive period may be an appropriate time to buy and sell properties.
Here are our top 3 tips for buying and selling over the festive period.
Tip 1: List on property portals
Make sure to list your property on the main property portals such as Rightmove and Zoopla if you are looking to sell your home during the festive period. Potential buyers are more likely to have more time to search for properties online throughout this season.
Rightmove has stated that Boxing Day tends to generate more internet traffic and therefore, you should take advantage of this period by listing on property portals if you are keen to sell your property.
Tip 2: Arrange viewings in the daylight during the winter
Since it gets dark quickly during the winter, you should arrange viewings in the daylight as it will provide potential buyers with a better experience and true representation of the property.
Tip 3: Take high-quality photos of the property
If you have a high-quality camera, you can try taking photos of the property during daylight hours. It is important that you set up your camera early in the morning during the winter because natural sunlight will result in better photos. If you do not feel that you have the necessary photography skills, you can look into hiring a professional photographer as the quality of the photos will play a big role in whether your property will sell or not.
