You can’t be blamed for assuming that buying a house would be on the bottom of most people’s shopping list at this time of year, but there are actually many benefits to buying or selling a home over the Christmas holiday period.
With the latest interest rate cut, extra time off from work to look at properties and influence from visiting family and friends, the decision to buy a home over Christmas is often a popular one.
For sellers there’s the knowledge that those looking and buying over the Christmas period are serious motivated buyers. They have usually set themselves a deadline of finding a property before the new year and are therefore keen to make a deal before the years end. Lifestyle changes are common at this time of year and buying a new property is often a part of the change.
So don’t write off the idea of looking for a new home or selling your property over Christmas. It could turn out to be the perfect time for you!
