Are you thinking of selling your home in the new year, but planning to wait until January?   A lot of people think putting your house on the market during the holidays is a crazy idea - it’s actually not.   If you’re wanting a quicker and smoother sale then launching your house to the market on Boxing Day is one of the smartest things you can do. 


Why? Here are four great reasons…


1. House Hunters are Searching in their Droves during the Festive Period

Between Boxing Day and the end of January, Rightmove says there are more than 150 million visits to their website which means your perfect buyer could be a click of the mouse away if you launch at the right time.


2. Why Not Capitalise on the Boxing Day Buyer Boom?

 Boxing Day is the most popular day of the year for buyers to search for a new house on Rightmove. In fact, web traffic to the property website soars by 70% the day after Christmas. Plus, the number of people browsing properties on Rightmove during the post-Christmas Day period has been increasing every year, with visits on Boxing Day last year 54% higher than the previous year.


3. Get Ahead of Your Competition

By launching your house to the market on Boxing Day you will get your property ahead of the January rush of people putting their houses on the market.  By the time they take action at the beginning of 2023, your property could already be sold!


4. A New Year, New Start

After Christmas people start looking for a change and new adventures. For many people this means moving to a new house so it's important to have your property in pole position to be found online. By launching to the market on Boxing Day, can really help you to do that.
