Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - BUCKS PROPERTY -

T’S not too late in the year to give your property a great chance of sell­ing early in 2016 ac­cord­ing to Gibbs Gille­spie’s Ger­rards Cross of­fice.With the Christ­mas hol­i­days fast ap­proach­ing many peo­ple feel now is not the time to put their property up for sale.

How­ever, branch part­ner, Clive Ed­wards, ex­plained that this be­lief is be­com­ing more and more mis­guided.

He said:“A fairly new tra­di­tion among our col­lec­tive fes­tive must dos is peo­ple reach­ing for tablets on Box­ing Day. Not the type you take to cure the ex­cesses of the day be­fore but the elec­tronic ver­sions you swipe rather than swal­low.

“For the past five years property por­tals in the UK have recorded huge num­bers of visi­tors on De­cem­ber 26. Peo­ple are at home, with time on their hands and want to have a look to see what prop­er­ties are up for sale.

“It’s also a time peo­ple start to think about mov­ing. For many, find­ing a new home is at the top of their New Year Res­o­lu­tions list.

“You still have time to give your property a great chance of be­ing seen by th­ese Box­ing Day browsers.

“If you want to sell in the New Year get us to list your property now be­fore any fes­tive dec­o­ra­tions go up. Pho­tos in Jan­uary show­ing Christ­mas trees tend to make a property look odd.

“Ob­vi­ously you don’t want peo­ple walk­ing round your home while you tuck into your tur­key, or as the fam­ily sits around play­ing board games or im­mersed in their new gad­gets.

“But hav­ing your property on the property por­tals over Christ­mas gives it a much bet­ter chance of sell­ing ear­lier in the New Year.

“The first two weeks of Jan­uary can be very busy with peo­ple vis­it­ing prop­er­ties they have seen on­line dur­ing the Christ­mas break.”
