I

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - BUCKS PROPERTY -

SAW an ad­vert the other day which was pro­mot­ing a Christ­mas event in a restau­rant. At first I was hor­ri­fied. Fancy pro­mot­ing a fes­tive event in late Au­gust? We’ve just en­joyed a great sporting sum­mer (even if the weather was typ­i­cally in­con­sis­tent) and our Team GG still aren’t ready to con­jure up thoughts of the colder, darker months just yet.

But this ad­vert did get us all think­ing. With­out mak­ing a rod for our own backs, most sales take around three to four months to com­plete, all be­ing well.

We get a lot of peo­ple com­ing in to us in late Septem­ber and early Oc­to­ber say­ing they want to be in their new place for Christ­mas.

In our ex­pe­ri­ence, au­tumn and win­ter house hun­ters are usu­ally the most mo­ti­vated and se­ri­ous peo­ple in the mar­ket.They have a deadline for when they want to be in their new homes which of­ten makes the sale smoother to trans­act.

This mo­ti­va­tion of­ten gets the process mo­tor­ing along. Solic­i­tors are prompted, sur­vey­ors are pushed for ac­tion and the ‘fes­tive fan­tasy’ can be made a re­al­ity due to ‘where there’s a will there’s a way’ power.

If you’re think­ing of mov­ing and want to be carv­ing up the turkey in a new home it’s time to be like that restau­rant I men­tioned and act NOW.

We guar­an­tee to give you a free, hon­est and ex­pert val­u­a­tion of your home and it’s al­ways our plea­sure to an­swer any prop­erty re­lated ques­tions you have.

Christ­mas may feel as though it’s a long, long way away at the mo­ment but you’ll be pulling crack­ers, hav­ing left­over turkey sand­wiches and watch­ing re­peats of be­fore you know it.

Call us on 01753 888866 or pop in to our of­fice at 26 Pack­horse Road for an in­for­mal and friendly chat about your prop­erty re­quire­ments.

TIMETO ACT: Fiona Lewis Wall says that any­one who wants to move be­fore Christ­mas needs to get in touch now.
