Why you should list your property before Boxing Day

7th December 2018

Preparing your property for sale during the festive season is a great way to ensure a speedy sale after Christmas.

Rightmove’s statistics show a massive increase in traffic to their website on Boxing Day. There’s a slight decline before the big day, but after Christmas, it lifts. This means there’s a captive audience sitting at home looking at properties!

If you prepare your property for sale in December, Maslen Estate Agents can ensure it goes live on Boxing Day. It’s important to get your home photographed without any decorations, so it doesn’t date the marketing. 

Once we have the photographs and measurements, our staff can make the listing live on Boxing Day. It’s a great opportunity to maximise the audience that are off work. They’re looking at Rightmove thinking about moving in the new year, and be saving properties to make enquiries when the festive season is over.

Don’t worry about being bothered over the Christmas period - Maslen Estate Agents is out of office from 4.30pm on Friday the 21st of December until 8.30am on the 2nd of January. The listing will be uploaded so all you need to do is put your feet up and enjoy the break with your loved ones!

Then, in January when you’re ready, the interest that was generated on Boxing Day and over the holiday season will be turned into viewings. If you’re interested in finding out more about selling your home this December, contact Maslen Estate Agents today.
