SALES NEWS: Buyers are already on the prowl for early-bird sellers


If your New Year’s resolution is to move house, you might want to do so sooner than later. 

Rightmove – one of the two major property portals on which East of Exe advertises all of its homes – recorded a 22 per cent increase in visits over the Christmas period compared to the same time a year ago. 

There were almost 31 million Rightmove page views on Boxing Day and 44 million on December 30.

It says it is now on track this month to exceed January 2015, when it recorded one of its highest-ever monthly total of visitors and page views. A spokesman claims this is a sign that “the housing market is kicking off 2016 with buyers on the prowl.”

Those wanting to prepare their homes to launch to the market in the near future should consider asking an estate agent for expert advice now, on how to present their property to attract the optimum asking price and encourage the maximum number of viewings.
