Thinking of selling your home in North Leeds in the New Year? – then get your house Market Ready before the decorations go up

Thursday 15 Nov 2018

Thinking of selling your home in North Leeds in the New Year? – then get your house Market Ready before the decorations go up.


If you are thinking of selling your home in  North Leeds in the New Year, then now is the time to start looking to get your property Market Ready for the following reasons:-

  • Many people have put up decorations before December 15th, but you need to ensure that when photographs or virtual tours take place, your property is free from anything relating to Christmas decorations or Christmas clutter!
  • Because most people think that the beginning of the New Year is the right time to market their home – true, this is one of the busiest times, then why not be Market Ready for just before Christmas when there is less competition on the market.
  • Christmas  is a time when all the family are generally together and talking about plans for the future, make sure your property is seen on the main property portals Rightmove, Zoopla and Prime |Location over Christmas – Rightmove’s viewing figures go through the roof starting on December 27th
  • All Estate agents will be back to work by December 2nd – this is one of the busiest weeks of the year in Estate Agency – make sure your market appraisal is not taking place in a rush amongst all the other people wanting to market their property at this time too.
