17 Dec MILLIONS WILL HOUSE HUNT ONLINE OVER THE FESTIVE SEASON
Do you know millions of people search for property as soon as the last mouthful of Christmas pud has been eaten?
Last year and every year Rightmove have over a million visitors on Christmas Day and Boxing Day. Perhaps partly due to house hunting online being made easier by all the mobile devices. Who would guess that during the traditional family gathering for Only Fools and Horses, Jonny appears to be reading his emails, but actually he’s looking for his first property! Other factors may be that it’s a pivotal time for decisions. Christmas is often the catalyst for divorces, location changes, decision to change job etc. But it’s also a time when everyone has a bit of downtime at home to do those things they haven’t previously had time to.
But if your house happens not to be on the market for all those Only Fools And Horses dodgers, it must be on by the first week in January. January 2015 saw a record breaking 110 million property hunters visit to Rightmove, searching for their next home or investment. Make it your New Years resolution to get a valuation from Place Estate Agents.
