No Time Like the Present

 

It’s beginning to feel more and more like Christmas, with the lights twinkling in Sloane Square, Santa in his grotto at Harrods (and, magically, managing to make appearances elsewhere) and hotel lobbies competing in the tree stakes.

If you’re considering putting your house on the market, you’re probably thinking of waiting until after Christmas, but in actual fact there are plenty of good reasons to do it right now.

We ourselves have seen a flurry of activity over the past week or so on the sales side – those shrewd enough to know an opportunity when they see one – and buyers who have been sitting on the side-lines cautiously are coming out and making offers with a view to sealing a deal before the end of the year.

There are only a couple of days over the holidays when most of us are tied up with family, the rest of the time is spent browsing the sales, for next year’s holidays and… guess what? Property. Whether for a new home or an investment. The market place is less crowded as, there are of course, many people away on vacation, and the vendors who have been marketing their properties all year wish to draw a line under it and sell before the New Year.

So, rather than procrastinate for another couple of months, why not seize the moment and start 2017 with a spring in your step, having sold your house or bought the perfect property.
