People often ask – ‘When is the best time to sell your home?’ which very much depends on your circumstances, such as - looking to move quickly, the need to upsize due to a growing family or you just think it’s time to move. But why is January a good time to sell your home?
Most people think that winter is typically one of the worst times to sell. There are supposedly fewer homes on the market and less people looking to buy. However, after New Year and in the first few weeks of January there is a significant spike in demand and views for homes listed online increase. After the excitement of Christmas, people often have time to think about next steps - like finally finding that dream home.
For 2nd January – 8th January Rightmove had more than 10 million more views compared to the 26th December to the 1st January* so by being prepared and getting your home ready to go on the market, your home will be in prime position for all those looking to buy in early January.
