Christ­mas could be best time to sell

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

MANY home­own­ers will be wait­ing for spring be­fore putting their prop­erty on the mar­ket but they could be miss­ing a trick, ac­cord­ing to Ed Stoyle, head of res­i­den­tial prop­erty sales at Carter Jonas York.

Win­ter, in­clud­ing Christ­mas, is the per­fect time to sell as fewer prop­er­ties are avail­able and only the most com­mit­ted buy­ers are view­ing, says Ed.

He adds: “The win­ter months, and in­deed the Christ­mas pe­riod, can be more pro­duc­tive than peo­ple re­alise.

“Dur­ing the win­ter, agents rest prop­er­ties that failed to sell while few new ones ap­pear, so homes mar­keted at this time will nat­u­rally en­joy a much higher pro­file.”
