As the decorations are now up in the Eric Lloyd & Co offices, Christmas can’t be far away! Whilst Christmas is undoubtedly a time for celebration and family gatherings the pace in the world of property tends to slow slightly at this time of the year. This provides the opportunity for both reviewing and forward planning. Jonathan Bye, director of Eric Lloyd & Co, will be publishing his annual property review in the first few days of the New Year, however he commented, “2017 is on course for another very successful year for Eric Lloyd & Co with business levels in the first eleven months of the year already exceeding the total for 2016, which itself was a very busy year.” Planning ahead is also a vital activity at this time of the year. Statistics from Rightmove and Zoopla show that over the Christmas period and early January is the busiest time of the year for potential homebuyers carrying out their initial property searches. For anyone considering a move early in the New Year it is vital that the opportunity to tap into this surge of activity is not missed. We have appointments available for free valuations before Christmas. If you like what you hear we can then be ready to launch your property onto the market immediately in January. Call us today on 01803 852773 or 01803 844466. We will be closing for a short break over the Christmas holiday period but open again between 27th and 30th December. Jonathan and Bill and the team at Eric Lloyd & Co wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Prosperous New Year.
