With the dreary weather, short days and long nights, it can be hard to find the motivation to make the decision to sell your house. But there are great benefits for the brave few who take the plunge! You get a big head-start on those waiting for the perfect pictures in spring or summer, as well as the high demand from ‘New Year, New Home’ buyers.
So here’s just some of the reasons we think January is an awesome time to sell your home…
Serious Buyers Only
In the winter months, most people (maybe sensibly) are hunkered down in front of the fire and the TV. Only those who are ready to buy a property are out hunting at this time of year, saving you the hassle of getting your house ready for viewings for people who have no intention of buying.
Blow Away The Competition
Most houses on the market in January have been on for some time and failed to sell. Creating a new listing for your property in January will allow your property to stand out compared to other stock on the market.
Get A Head Start
Listing your property in January gets your nose in front of the ‘Spring Rush’, typically a busy time as people wait for the perfect time to photograph their property.
In the spring and summer the property market becomes inundated with new properties, making your house just one of many for sale. However, at the start of the year there is a period of high demand and low supply, meaning your property can stand out from the crowd and has less chance of getting lost in the listings later in the year.
Quieter Market, Quicker Results
The period immediately after Christmas is generally the quietest for estate agents, mortgage brokers and conveyancers, leaving them free to give you additional attention. Depending on your situation, in particular the length of your chain, you could find the money from your sale landing in your account far sooner than you would in Spring or Summer.
