All the hustle without the bustle – until after Christmas

It’s still a little-known fact that property searches increase by 50% on Boxing Day and continues to be one of the busiest times for online property searches through to January!

Many people think that trying to move over the Christmas period is a mistake, but statistics tell a different story. Rightmove have seen over 2 million people trawl through property listings on Boxing Day alone and this is down to the fact that people have more free time, more ‘down-time’ and the motivation to make a New Year change.

Mike Jones, Managing Director says: “We’ve seen a spike in online traffic every Boxing Day as well as having feedback from the property portals – Rightmove, Zoopla and On the Market, witnessing the same trend. Newly bought iPads and iPhones need to be put to use and having all the decision-makers under one roof creates the perfect scenario.

At Michael Jones, we understand that Christmas is a time to switch off and spend time with your families, so we operate a ‘do not disturb’ policy. During November and December, we prepare your listing and marketing – and ensure the photography is taken before your tree and decorations go up. Over the festive period, you get to relax (or perhaps not), be merry and enjoy the peace and quiet (or a full, loud, crazy house) – and

when Boxing Day happens… BAM! Your listing is set live. All the hustle without the bustle – until after Christmas.

Plus, as a special Christmas present to you… we will give all instructions received by 23rd December 2019, a FREE Premium Marketing Package worth £500, which includes:

  • Professional photographs taken of your property
  • Detailed floor plans provided
  • Premium listing on Rightmove (worth £250)
  • Listings on Zoopla and On the Market

  • Your own dedicated negotiator to handle all your property questions
