The Early Bird

 Andrew Grant LLP in January agreed 88 sales with an aggregate value of £26 m and had nearly 1700 people registered with us looking for properties.
In our Country Homes’ department we have nearly 250 applicants looking for homes above £500K and we’ve already carried out over 200 viewings in January in this price bracket.

George Pickard, Senior Partner at Country Homes said:  
“During the Winter the market continues to happen in our office we have found that although the quantity of appointments falls the quality of the remaining appointments has increased dramatically providing stronger sales with determined purchasers and accommodating vendors.  Many Sellers wrongly elect to remove their properties from marketing over this period with a view to returning in the spring when they feel that perhaps the aesthetics of the property and its garden are more welcoming.”

Over the festive period when families tend to spend more time together there is greater opportunity to talk about the possibility of moving home.  Most people embark on their search on the internet and statistics confirm that traffic on Rightmove surges at this time.

Sellers who retain the marketing of their properties over the winter months may have already secured a buyer and won’t be waiting for the rustle of spring!
