Launch Your Property Over Christmas For Stress-Free House Hunting

The festive season is upon us and while many are busy decking the halls and enjoying the celebrations, homeowners who will soon be selling their homes and house hunting have a golden opportunity to get ahead of the game. Without any shadow of a doubt, there is a colossal surge in website traffic between Boxing Day and New Year's Day, with most estate agents seeing a 50% increase in visits. In fact, Rightmove reported it to be one of the busiest periods for traffic all year. With that in mind, we believe those who want to sell their house in the new year shouldn’t miss out on this opportunity.

The Boxing Day Boom And Strategic House Hunting

This surge presents a unique window of opportunity for those looking to sell their homes. At ehB, we suggest our clients take advantage of this peak period by having their property launched online during this crucial week for house hunting. Our Managing Director, Edward Bromwich, says, ‘There's a massive spike in activity when Rightmove traffic goes into orbit’ as people are at home considering their property move for the new year. And as we share our properties on our own website, as well as RightMove, OnTheMarket and WeAreTheMarket, our clients' properties are sure to be seen by as many people as possible.

Ensuring your property is listed during this week is like getting a 5-minute head start well before your competitors have even tied their shoelaces! As Ed puts it, ‘You'll have beaten all those who are relaxing on their sofas with a glass of sherry and old James Bond films, thinking that maybe they'll put theirs on the market 'some time' in January.’ But don’t worry, that doesn’t mean you won’t be able to relax with your family this Christmas because our team will book viewings for the new year.

Beating The Tree

To ensure your property is among the first to catch the eyes of those in the throes of house hunting, we suggest a strategic move - arrange a valuation with our team ASAP and we will take photos before the focal point in your living room becomes the Christmas tree. Think of it this way, you were likely going to do a pre-Christmas tidy and declutter as it is, this is just an extra step before the decorations come out again.

Launching your property during this high-traffic period not only maximises visibility but also positions you well ahead of the competition. ‘By the time they wake up and decide to sell, many of those that hit the market over the festive season will have attracted a lot of viewings,’ explains Bromwich. We want our clients to get a valuable head start.

Stress-Free House Hunting

You don't need to show anybody the house before Christmas, allowing you to enjoy the festivities undisturbed. Instead, your property will be launched in the period, setting the stage for a proactive start to the new year. This means that you can start house hunting without worrying about your current property going on the market. While others are still contemplating and rushing to get the decorations down, you'll be ready to welcome potential buyers in the new year at a time that suits your lifestyle.

If you're serious about selling your property and want to make a lasting impression on the bustling property market, consider our strategic approach. Don't let the Christmas tree steal the spotlight in your marketing literature – beat the rush and be ahead in the race for a successful property sale. Contact us online or call 01926 881 144 to get the ball rolling!

"'My wife and I recently had the pleasure of working with Rachel to secure an apartment rental through EHB Residential. Not only was the apartment immaculate upon our arrival - with every small detail taken care of, Rachel worked hard to make the whole rental process as smooth as possible. p. Rachel shows a genuine interest in the needs of both the tenant and landlord. For us, this created a 'win win' situation where we were able to move into our dream apartment with minimum fuss while the owners of the property can rest assured that their investment is safe under Rachel's diligent management. p. I would highly recommend the services of Rachel and EHB residential.5* experience ' "
