Why January is a great time to sell with Andrew Lodge Estate Agents

Industry news :   10 - 12 - 21

In the run up to Christmas we have been busy progressing sales and also bringing some beautiful Farnham properties to market in time for the surge in home searches over the festive period.

It’s a common misconception that market activity lulls in January, ready to resume in the spring. But with demand levels still on the rise, this couldn’t be more wrong for 2022 predictions.

Many see the new year as a chance for a fresh start, and that can mean homeowners are on the hunt to physically change or improve their surroundings.

The number of people window-shopping on Rightmove on Boxing Day last year was 50% higher than the year before.*

To help you decide whether to take action, here are some of the top reasons why you couldn’t pick a better month than January to sell.

People are on the move

Statistics indicate that January is the busiest time of the year for employee redistribution or staff members moving around.

With many of us spending Christmas at home, it can also be the final push needed for first-time buyers looking to move out or a household to decide they need somewhere with more space for the year ahead.

There is less competition

After the holiday season has come to an end, conditions are optimal for serious sellers, as many homeowners tend to take their time listing their property.

This means that if you work with our property experts over the next month, you could get ahead of the competition and really stand out on the market.
