Moving Home For Christmas?

The online property portal Rightmove has recently announced that the average asking price of newly-marketed properties has shown a seasonal drop of 2.3% (£7218) this month due to new sellers launching a ‘late summer sale’ to try and find a buyer more quickly.

Where has this year gone? With only 18 weeks left until Christmas, purchasers who are wanting to move by Christmas will have to get their skates on.

Figures now suggest it is taking on average 13-18 weeks from agreeing a sale to moving in, so any buyers wishing to complete prior to Christmas must have the necessary funds in place, which could be cash, the sale of their own property, or a mortgage offer.

For those ‘new to the market’ buyers, typically an extra eight weeks can be added to the above time. Father Christmas will be sliding down our chimneys sooner than we think, so wouldn’t it be nice to see if he can fit down your new chimney, not your old one!
