With only eight weeks until Christmas, it’s not all Christmas jumpers, mince pies and Secret Santa in the office, it’s actually a key time of year to get ahead in terms of your property.
The property market experiences a boom in the New Year as traditionally people have kick-started their desire to be in a new home by the following summer. Maybe it’s more living space, bedrooms or a designer kitchen, or maybe it’s the opposite and you want to down-size so you don’t have to host Christmas again! Whatever your motivations, industry experts don’t recommend waiting until the New Year; instead they advise you make the most of December in preparation.
Inviting an established, trusted Estate Agent to value your home before Christmas means you are well-equipped with the knowledge and facts to make a smart decision at the start of the year.
Leading property portal, Rightmove reports that it has a record amount of website traffic between Christmas and New Year. This is just one example of people thinking about selling, buying, letting or renting in New Year.
We therefore recommend striking whilst the iron is hot and if moving in 2019 is on your radar, invite Lovett Estate Agents to provide an up-to-date market appraisal of your property in December. They know what has sold in your road, they understand the market, they can suggest any home-improvements to command a higher-selling price, and so on. Once you have gathered an up-to-date valuation you can mull it over with your nearest and dearest, check you are paying competitive rates and sign the paperwork to instruct Lovett ready for 1st January.
There is no point missing out on vital marketing time in January so plan ahead, use November and December wisely, so you can be ahead of the market and start 2019 mentally prepared.
“Book your complimentary market appraisal with Lovett before 1st December and receive a Hamper worth £100.”
