DECEMBER: To sell or not to sell?

We all know that with Christmas comes an abundance of food, parties and swipes of the card… but have you ever considered that the silly season is just as packed with buyers on the lookout for a new home?

While December is traditionally the time of year for winding down and long-awaited holidays, for some, it’s actually the only chance to find and secure that dream home during school holidays and work leave.

So if you’re thinking of not listing your home until January, but are worried about missing out on a sale, the answer is yes – you could be! And not just on any offer, but on a quick and profitable one – with plenty of end-of-year buyers keen to move in and settle before work and school returns.

But buyers on the lookout for a new home before Christmas and the new year isn’t the only reason that right now is a great time to sell. December is also the time when there are significantly less properties on the market, meaning less competition for yours – and more competition between buyers looking at your home. 

So if you plan to buck the trend (and benefit from current market conditions) by selling this December, the time to start marketing and advertising your property is right now
