Why Christmas Is the Perfect Time to Sell Your Property
Have a property to sell and waiting until New Year to put it on the market? Based on recent trends we advise against this. Holding off until the New Year is what most vendors are thinking. Understandably, the majority of sellers reckon they’ll get Christmas and all the festivities out of the way before they start concentrating on selling.

SW17 London Best Estate Agent 2023 – Selling Your Property is Easy with Next Step
As an experienced estate agent covering Wimbledon, Morden, Sutton, Mitcham and Tooting we are well aware that another reason the Christmas holiday period is a good time to sell is because most families will be together. And that means being able to discuss any new house move with the main decision makers present in the room.
Sell your London home during the festive period, cash in on cosiness – The height of winter isn’t a bad time to sell your current home. Yes, you can’t get the full benefit of a lovely garden, but you can make the property look cosy, warm and inviting with a log burner, plenty of lamps and jewel-coloured throws and cushions.
Serious sellers choose the Christmas season
House hunters who are actively looking over the traditionally quiet festive period in the property market tend to be those who are very serious about moving quickly. In other words, they are motivated, which translates in to ‘quality buyers’. What do we mean by that? Well, they are viewing property because they want to – or feel they need to – rather than turning up at parties and enjoying all the frivolity of the season. And this means, you are far more likely to get a sale.
