Think Christmas is a quiet time for people looking to move home?

Thursday 05 Dec 2019

Rightmove traffic at least doubles between Christmas Day and January 2nd – in fact last year’s traffic saw an audience growth of 231% between these two dates – Zoopla and On the Market also see an upsurge in traffic too.

Miles Shipside, Commercial Director of Rightmove quotes  “as you’d expect, everyone becomes wrapped up with Christmas in December but even before the tree has come down, attentions turn back to the search for the dream home – it just confirms that once the celebrations stop, the search begins”

So … what are the advantages of marketing your property in December:-

  • There is less competition on the market for when the Rightmove audience spikes on Boxing Day.
  • Professional Photographs and 3D tours can be prepared just before the Christmas decorations go up
  • Your property will be market ready for the New Year when everyone else is trying to get their home ready to sell.

So if you’ve decided that December is the right time to sell your home, choose a local Independent  Estate Agent with over 30 years’  experience in North and West Yorkshire , 5 star reviews and ‘Fairer Fixed Fees’ to save you money and uncertainty.

A great product range with choice is important too – 3D virtual tours, local area videos, site maps, extensive social media  and ‘hi-viz’ for sale boards all ensure your property is marketed in the most effective way.

Supporting the local community

This year David Phillip Estate Agents are working with St.George’s Crypt in Leeds – we think it is important to support a local charity and for the homeless, vulnerable and those suffering from addiction, Christmas can be a difficult time. We are becoming #cryptmas angels by donating £20 for every new property instruction in December. This money will go towards a range of health interventions including physiotherapy, dentistry, optometry, occupational therapy and mental health support  – we’ve downloaded our Angel wings to support!

So if you are looking to sell, call David Phillip Estate Agents for a FREE market appraisal on 01134 676 400 w:,  a: 86, Leeds Road, Bramhope, Leeds.
