If you are looking to move home in the early part of next year now is the ideal time to put the wheels in motion.  With Christmas fast approaching many say that they are too busy to be preparing to launch a property onto the market at this time of the year.  However if you are looking to sell early in 2017 it is worth remembering that the property websites like Rightmove and Zoopla have their highest number of daily visits over the Christmas and New Year holiday period compared to virtually any other time of the year with home movers considering their plans for the forthcoming year.  Jonathan Bye, director of Eric Lloyd & Co, suggests that an option to consider in order to be ahead of the New Year rush is to arrange your valuation and brochure preparation including photos and floor plans etc before the Christmas decorations go up.  Your property can then be “low key” marketed in the run up to Christmas and then set fully live onto the market either just before the Christmas holiday or just before New Year to maximise its marketing exposure during these peak enquiry periods with viewings then arranged to start in January.  If you are considering selling in Brixham call Jonathan himself, Edwin Morgan or Mike Williams on 01803 852773 or Rachel Cowls or Tina Barber on 01803 844466 if you are considering selling in Churston, Galmpton, Broadsands, Hookhills or Goodrington to arrange your free valuation.
