It really is the most wonderful time of year, especially in the VMove office, our Christmas tree is twinkling and we are already putting together some exciting marketing plans for some of our new properties ready to launch in January 2018. I still can’t believe it’s going to be 2018!
Quite often we speak to homeowners who are wanting to make a fresh start in the New Year, whether its upsizing, downsizing or a complete relocation, we hear the same sentences a lot.
‘Let’s have one last Christmas at home’ ‘We will be looking at moving in the New Year’ ‘It’s too much hassle over Christmas’
Here are three reasons (there are tons more) why it’s important to instruct your estate agent in December so you are ready to launch your property onto the market in January…
The Facts say so
Rightmove viewings significantly increase straight after Christmas for property searches as people sit down with the family over a box of celebrations to discuss their plans for the New Year.
According to Rightmove their page views dramatically increase straight after Christmas with over 1.6 million views on Boxing Day and a ginormous 3.3 million visits on New Years’ Day- imagine having your property on the market on New Year’s Day!
Perfection takes time
The perfect launch requires a little extra time and dedication. At VMove we take time to put together the marketing strategy that will get your home sold the quickest and for the very best price. This takes the best effort behind the scenes to make sure that the launch is show stopping.
The perfect launch can take up to three weeks if you property requires professional photography and home staging (our favourite part) so it could be early February before your property is on the market if you only start thinking about it once things have settled after Christmas.
We can be shouting about your home in December
We put major importance on looking after all of our customers and that includes potential buyers in the area. We constantly keep in touch with them so that should the perfect property appear in our sights we know exactly who to match it with.
As soon we meet a new homeowner we are already thinking about who we can tell about it, this includes sending sneak peek pictures, features and snippets of information to spark interest early.
By getting ready to launch in January we can already be talking to potential buyers so that when your property goes live, we can be booking viewings from the start.
… these are only three reasons why it’s important to start planning in December, you could be launched, sold and moving into your new home by spring.
If you are wanting to start talking about how you can get your home sold in 2018 give us a call on 01524 230 722 or send me an email at email@example.com, we would love to hear from you.
Here is to a successful 2018!
Now might not be the right time for you but when it is, here is why I love working for VMove.
