Turkey, sprouts and property searches. This might be the season of sickly sweet TV adverts with scenes of the perfect Christmas. In our house it’s much more about how to escape the dreadful TV and family arguments. That’s when I turn to my phone and start to daydream of future homes. It seems I’m not the only one: the Christmas period is now a busy old time for Rightmove and Zoopla…
It should be a day of food, fun and festivity but in fact on Christmas Day last year almost a million people visited the UK’s biggest property portal Rightmove. The brilliance of their app means browsing for homes on your phone is easier than ever. Dual screening is the new anti-social behaviour in the living room as TV viewers fiddle with their phone at the same time.
Boxing Day may be the day of cold sandwiches, chutneys, pickles and turkey pie but it is also the day when families are looking for an escape after the previous day’s debauchery. Boxing Day in 2014 saw over three million visitors head to Rightmove to see what was on the market.
Those days between Boxing Day and New Year’s Eve:
There should be a name for these days. With everyone back to work on the Tuesday and some of us having to sweat out the whole week until Friday there is going to be a lot of time to kill for a lot of people. Where better than Rightmove?
New Year’s Day:
All those promises made last night about what is in store for 2016 will be hitting home about now. Buyers all over the country will be taking the day to ready themselves for the year ahead and that means looking at property online before checking the diary and arranging some viewings.
1st Day back at work:
Year after year this is the busiest day of the year on Rightmove. As everyone returns to work they use the company time to search longingly for that next home. This is a day you don’t want to miss if you are looking to sell in the New Year.
The busiest month year after year across all the portals. 110 million visits in 2015!
With four and a half weeks until Christmas there is still time to make sure your property is on the portals for when all of these buyers are searching. If you are looking to sell your property in the New Year, now is the time to get your property up on the market: SELECT PACKAGE
