Why should I sell my property now - we're running up to Christmas?

Buyer and sellers are serious at this time of the year. Buyers and Sellers who move in October, November and December tend to be moving for a specific reason – a new job, a baby on the way, or parents trying to register their children for schools in December – making it a great time to sell a family home. Furthermore, speculative buyers are unlikely to be looking at this time of year. With serious and motivated buyers and sellers, transactions are likely to be quicker and smoother. It may be a cliché, but the age old phrase “quality over quantity” comes to mind.


Stand out from the crowd

With fewer competing properties and buyers, you are sure to stand out. With fewer properties being listed on property portals and websites your home will get more attention from those serious buyers who will be trawling the web while they shelter from the colder weather and darker nights. Likewise, as a buyer, your offer will stand out for a seller with fewer buyers chancing their arm with offers.


Lock in your interest rates

Whilst interest rates are at historic lows, many people are using this time to find the best deals on mortgages. This is a prime time to fix your mortgage.
