An estate agency, specifically Connells in Leamington, has urged those homeowners looking to sell their property at the turn of the New Year to ensure their property is ready for, what is, a traditional New Year rush.
Connells have stated that January is a prime time for people to move home, and buyers are likely to begin looking around the property market for a new home at the beginning of the New Year. New year, new start and all that…
For those selling up, in order to take full advantage of interest from buyers, it will be vital to get your property on the market as soon as possible in January, and of course to make sure your property is presentable, and very sellable!
The branch Manager of Connells, Carly Baskott, has been commenting: “At Connells, we’ve seen growing momentum and interest from buyers in the second half of the year. The January market is traditionally busy and, based on the increasing activity we have had over the last six months, we expect this New Year to be the same if not better.”
It seems apparent that over the past six months buyers have come back to the housing market with greater confidence. This has been helped by better mortgage packages being offered.
Ms Baskott continued saying: “Christmas and New Year is a time for resolutions and new beginnings, and buying a home is often on people’s wish list. Sellers who want to take advantage of this annual flurry of activity should get in touch now.”
Furthermore, landlords may look to bolster their portfolios at the start of the year, and so, if they are buying new properties, it would be wise for them to ensure they are insured with a landlord insurance quote before they begin looking for new tenants.
With the Christmas and New Year period already in full swing, property experts will be keeping a very keen eye on the number of transactions going through during the next couple of months.
