Saunders & Lingard the regional award winning estate agency, which is based in Newton Abbot and Torquay, and covers the whole of the Torbay and Teignbridge areas, know that prospective sellers should be preparing their home now for launching to the market immediately after Christmas.
So before hanging out your paper chains and decorating your tree, with a glass of Baileys in hand and Bing Crosby on the stereo, you should get down to the business of getting your home sale ready for this holiday season!
The Saunders & Lingard team recommend getting your valuation done now and all the photos and details ready before your Christmas decorations go up, then your home will be prepared for releasing to the market. This will ensure that you will be capturing the single busiest time of the year for people who hit the internet searching for their ideal property for 2019.
And talking of the internet, the properties at Saunders & Lingard are now not only seen on the 'Rightmove' and 'Zoopla' portals, but also at the 'On The Market' portal.
Statistics show that websites like these have a huge surge in people looking for properties during the post Christmas jollities. Data released has revealed an increase in people looking for homes online between Christmas Eve and New Year's Day, and even on Christmas Day, many take time out from festivities to send emails to estate agents. On Boxing Day and New Years Day it gets even busier on property portals!
Phew! And once this is done....you can proceed with hanging out your stocking and singing merrily away to 'White Christmas'!!!
If you are considering selling your home now or in the New Year, or perhaps you have been on the market for a while and are struggling to sell? Sue, Sara and Rob will be happy to take your call and organise a complimentary appraisal of your property.
