Why January is the time…

Putting your house on the market early in the year can reap huge rewards and kick start your New Year. But why January is the time to put your house on the market?

Urmston Estate Agents, VitalSpace achieved record enquiries during the Christmas period and it appears Spring may have already of sprung in the local property market.

During early January, millions of house hunters take to browsing estate agents websites in search for inspiration for their next big move. Even during Christmas, families gather round the glowing yuletide laptop to register with us. Looking back, some of our best sales results have been achieved during January and February when buyers often have a tendency to offer strongly to secure houses due to limited stock supply. Motivated sellers should have their home advertised online and marketed early to ensure they don’t miss this audience.

Over the past decade, searching for your new home seems to have been starting earlier and earlier. Surprisingly, Boxing Day the busiest day for people looking at homes online. Fed up with chocolate and turkey, people start dreaming of what the new year could bring, and buying a new home is high up on the agenda.

This trend continues throughout January, with buyer enquiries more than doubling from the month of December to January. This new early-bird market has grown due to a variety of factors and placing your houses to the market in January will mean beating the spring influx which is when many choose to put their house onto the open market.

Typically, the Spring market will become saturated dominated by high supply and high demand, which means you’re home will simply be one of many houses available for sale. Why not consider selling in a period of high demand but low supply, which will mean your home stands out from the crowd and with less risk of getting lost in busy market.
