Busting The January Property Market Myth

Busting The January Property Market Myth

“Nothing happens in January, does it?”

It’s a question we hear a lot from homeowners locally who are thinking of selling but considering putting things off until spring.

While that statement might be true about the number of events on people’s social calendars, it doesn’t apply to the property market because there’s plenty of activity happening.

The truth is January sees five out of the ten busiest property searching days on the internet, according to the portal Rightmove.

The five dates when new home seeking souls hit the web in huge numbers are:

  • 13th January
  • 21st January
  • 27th January
  • 2nd January
  • 12th January

January is a time when serious buyers re-enter the market. It’s a time when the people most motivated to change where they live get moving and start looking with real intent, as the above stats shows.

So, things do happen in the local property market in January.

We’ve already seen buyer confidence returning following the General Election.

Now is an ideal time to get your home on the market and get noticed by those record internet numbers throughout January.

Plus, if you put your home up for sale this month, you’ll avoid the spring stampede and stand out from the crowd.
