It really is the most wonderful time of year, especially in the Open House Estate Agent Leicester office; we are already putting together some exciting marketing plans for some of our new properties ready to launch in January 2019. We just can’t believe that its 2019 already, what an amazing year we have had.
January is renowned for fresh starts and the Leicester property market is no exception. December is a jam-packed month and unfortunately house hunting is often the last thing on people’s minds, that’s why it’s important to get your Leicester property ready for the 2019 property market now and here’s why.
Rightmove viewings significantly increase straight after Christmas and New year for property searches as people sit down and discuss their plans and ambitions for the New Year.
According to Rightmove their page views dramatically increase straight after Christmas with over 1.6 million views on Boxing Day and a ginormous 3.3 million visits on New Years’ Day- imagine having your property on the market on New Year’s Day! People are ready and raring to go come the new year.
One big advantage of listing your property for sale in the new year is that you’ll pick up the house-hunters who were previously searching for properties before Christmas but have taken a break from looking over the holiday period. These house-hunters will likely have firmer ideas of what they’re looking for and will have already viewed all the older properties on the market, so your exciting new property will grab their attention right away. Plus, People browsing through property sites such as Rightmove and Zoopla instantly begin to increase from the first week in January. December can be a manic month for most people, but January is a return to normality.
The perfect launch requires a little extra time and dedication. At Open House Estate Agent Leicester, we take time to put together the marketing strategy that will get your home sold fast and for best price possible for your market. This takes the best effort behind the scenes to make sure that the launch is show stopping.
The perfect launch can take a couple of weeks if you property requires professional photography, so it could be late January before your property is on the market if you only start thinking about it once things have settled after Christmas. Getting off the mark now, can make a significant difference to selling you home quickly in January.
Quite often speak to homeowners who are wanting to make a fresh start in the New Year, whether its upsizing, downsizing or a complete relocation, we hear the same sentences a lot. ‘Let’s have one last Christmas at home’ ‘We will be looking at moving in the New Year’ ‘It’s too much hassle over Christmas’,but many of them are wrong. Make sure your property is ready for the new 2019 Leicester property market now and see it fly off the market in no time at all.
By getting ready to launch in January we can already be talking to potential buyers so that when your property goes live, we can be booking viewings from the start. Getting your Leicester property ready for 2019 now puts you ahead of all your competition. The sooner you act, the sooner you’ll be moving into your new home!
