Why listing your home before Boxing Day is the key to a swift sale.

As Christmas approaches, so does the number of people in search of a new home. Every year, Boxing Day marks the beginning of this house-hunting dash, with millions kicking off their search. However, if you're contemplating putting your property on the market, here's a compelling reason to act before the festive chaos begins.

Beat the festive rush and get your house on the market before Boxing Day to take advantage of the many buyers starting their search before the New Year. According to Rightmove, one of the UK's leading property websites, last year witnessed a staggering 46% increase in houses being listed on Boxing Day alone. The demand for property valuations also experienced a notable uptick, with a 29% increase in requests during the week following Christmas. This surge coincided with a 20% rise in online property views on Rightmove, as individuals began planning for a fresh start with a New Year, new home on the horizon.
