There’s one day of the year when the stars align for sellers and it’s not too far off.

If you’re planning on selling up anytime soon, you’d be mad not to capitalise on this opportunity.

Behold the Boxing Day Home Hunters

You may think the festive season isn’t a great time to take a property to market, but you’d be wrong.

Why? Internet traffic booms on property portals on Boxing Day.

Zoopla recorded a 70.5% spike in activity on the 26th of December last year. Rightmove and the rest of the portals also report similar surges.

On Boxing Day, people have time to think about their future and look at what’s on the market.

But That’s Not All!

Those who are perusing property portals on Boxing Day are motivated to move.

Christmas sets all sorts of big life decisions in motion. Some couples decide to cement a relationship by moving in together; others conclude that it’s time to part ways.

Some recognise that they need more space, while others admit it’s time to downsize.

With this pool of keen buyers, you’d think there would be an abundant supply of sellers. But surprisingly, many people delay putting their property on the market until the New Year.

This means the savvy sellers who get their act together in time for Boxing Day enjoy maximum exposure but less competition – it’s a win-win.
