Boxing Day Buzz: Why Putting Your Property Up for Sale Before Christmas Sets the Stage for a Prosperous New Year Sale

Boxing Day marks the busiest time of the year for website traffic on Rightmove and Zoopla. According to Rightmove’s property expert Tim Bannister, “Boxing Day is traditionally the start of activity ramping up into January and the spring selling season after Christmas, as people return to their search or consider a New Year move.”

The onset of the new year typically witnesses a surge in the property market as individuals set resolutions for change. By having your property listed before January, you position yourself ahead of the competition, catching the eye of motivated buyers looking to make a fresh start and capitalising on the Boxing Day peak.

Boxing Day Buzz: Why Putting Your Property Up for Sale Before Christmas Sets the Stage for a Prosperous New Year Sale

In this blog post, we provide five proven Redrose tips to prepare your property for a New Year Sale and make it stand out from the crowd.

Prepare Your Property for a New Year Sale with Redrose Estate Agents

Tick off these personalized pointers, and your journey to a successful property sale will be well underway.

  1. Winter Wear and Tear

The winter chill has set in, and your property might have faced its share of challenges. Redrose advises a meticulous examination of your property—scan for any dislodged roof tiles, assess if exterior greenery needs trimming, and ensure your boiler is functioning optimally.

Highlight your property’s best features by addressing minor issues before marketing it. A tip for property viewings: keep the entryway clear of snow or ice to make that crucial first impression a positive one!

  1. Post-Christmas Declutter

Christmas festivities can leave a lingering disarray. Redrose suggests you find a home for the influx of gifts. A clutter-free environment aids potential buyers in envisioning themselves in your space, contributing to a more positive viewing experience.

 

  1. Consider Thoughtful Redecorating

Looking to enhance your property’s appeal? Redrose recommends strategic redecoration as a cost-effective investment. Small details often missed in everyday living, such as chipped paint and tired furnishings, can stick in a buyer’s mind. Explore easy, inexpensive changes like a neutral paint job or tasteful accessories to breathe new life into your property.

 

  1. Embrace the Warmth

Selling in the early months means combating the cold. Redrose suggests creating a warm and inviting atmosphere for potential buyers. Ensure each room is comfortably heated. Illuminating living spaces with lamps and adding extra cushions showcases the homely and cosy side of your property.

  1. Maximize Space Appeal

Redrose encourages sellers to showcase the value their property offers. Investigate similar properties in your area, then elevate your home’s appeal by utilising space to its full potential. Whether it’s a home office, a revamped kitchen, or a children’s play nook, presenting additional value will attract discerning buyers.
