Hands up if you’re ready for Christmas! There’s not long to go until the big day now, and plenty of people here in the office are rushing around getting last-minute gifts for their friends and family.

It’s a lovely time of year, but Christmas is never greeted with much enthusiasm by those who are trying to sell their house.

As I have said before, there is a common misconception that no-one looks at property at this time of year, but the statistics prove otherwise.

Online searches are very high during the Christmas break – Rightmove’s busiest day of the year is 27th December – and I know from experience that plenty of properties exchange hands in December and January.

If your house is on the market, don’t be afraid to embrace the season to give your home an extra sprinkling of festive charm for potential buyers.

Get the Christmas spice scented candles on the go, have some freshly-baked mince pies on the kitchen table, and of course go all-out on a gorgeous Christmas tree.

Your house will hopefully be the place where they celebrate Christmas for years to come, so use each viewing to show them just how perfect it could be.

Far from being a time when no-one looks at property, Christmas could be the extra ingredient you need to show your house to its true potential.
