Period between Christmas and New Year a great time to get your property ready for January sale.
Homeowners who are planning on selling their home in January could benefit from a quick sale at a high price by taking advantage of the period between Christmas and New Year to get their home ready for sale.
Many homeowners will often spend time at home over the Christmas period which can be the perfect time to finish off any home improvement projects and make sure everything in the home is immaculately presented, to ensure that they can maximise the value of their home when January arrives.
Sellers can also give themselves an advantage over their competition by ensuring that as many legal documents and paperwork are in place as possible.
The recent Government changes to the stamp duty rules could also encourage those who had previously been delaying buying a home until after the election in order to see how Government policy panned out, to now reconsider and look at buying in January.
This means that it’s important that homeowners are ready to hit the ground running when people return from work after the festive period.
Stephen Ludlow, Chairman of Ludlowthompson, says:“Homeowners that can get their homes ready for sale over the Christmas period can steal a march on the competition when the majority of people come out of holiday mode in January.
“Many people take the opportunity of spending time at home over the Christmas and New Year period, which is an ideal time for finishing off any outstanding projects around the house.
"Potential homebuyers mayalso be looking at bringing their purchasing decision forward as a result of the new stamp duty rules, which means that staying one step ahead of the game could be vital in getting the sale price you might want.”
