SALES NEWS: It’s beginning to look a lot like …. house-buying time


Not all of the housing market takes a complete break at Christmas: buyers, in particular, are still busy viewing properties online, according to figures from the Rightmove portal.

Rightmove – which, along with Zoopla, carries full details of all the properties being marketed by East of Exe – typically receives around one million visits on Christmas Day alone, with each person viewing an average of 14 ‘pages’.

A year ago, around 10,000 emails were sent to estate agents via Rightmove onm Christmas Day, requesting details of homes on sale.

There were also around 20,000 visits to Rightmove within the first hour of the 2015 New Year – so between midnight and 1am on January 1 – and then a million more visits during the rest of New Year’s Day. The portal says it expects a similar audience this New Year.
