Is It A Good Idea To Sell My House At Christmas?
Selling your house in a downward market is always difficult, but Christmas time is another matter in itself. However, with the property market changing, and prices on the increase, does this make it any easier to sell your house during the December festive period? Possibly!
As a general rule amongst estate agents, it’s never usually a good idea to advertise your property for sale during Christmas. Most people aren’t really thinking about moving; they are out buying presents, visiting family and generally in a different mindset to the rest of the year.
However, what happens if you need to sell quickly?
Sometimes it’s not always possible to hold off until the new year, and urgency is a must especially if you are going through repossession procedures.
A good estate agent is a must.
Choosing the right estate agent for your house sale in December is a must, and you ideally need someone who knows the local area. Often, local estate agents have access to genuine cash buyers who they have on their contact lists. These investors may be looking for particular property, and may be exactly your property. You never know!
The best thing to do is ring around a few local estate agencies, and tell them that you are interested in selling quickly, and ask what they can offer you.
Working with a good solicitor.
Lawyers and solicitors are notorious for their ‘lack of’ speed when it comes to property sales. If you have a good solicitor on your side it can make all the difference, and can drive forward the sale of your property. Working with the buyers solicitor and mortgage company, they have the ability to get your sale through a lot quicker.
