Research has been conducted by Moneypenny, showing that the number of calls increases by 10% the day following a bank holiday.
Joanne Tattum, business relationship manager at Moneypenny, told Property Reporter: “When people are away from the stresses of work, they’re given time and space to think about their personal lives and take care of some ‘life admin’.
“As a result, it’s extremely common for the days following holidays to be used to contact professionals such as estate agents to help take care of matters like looking for their next home or putting an existing property on the market.”
Jason Dyer of JTM Homes agrees, finding that calls to the north London estate agency increase after public holidays. “The August bank holiday week is especially busy for us,” he says. “People often take time away from work during the school holidays and have extra time to think about their plans and browse potential new homes online.“
He adds: “It’s easier than ever before to be online and stay connected whilst you’re on holiday, either abroad or within the UK. Many people find properties they like online and want to book viewings as soon as possible.
“With this in mind, we encourage all our vendors to have their properties ready for viewings immediately after the bank holiday if possible, making the most of this increased interest. It’s especially important to understand what potential buyers value and we help our vendors to make the most of these trends.”
It’s not too late to make the most of the expected surge in interest after the bank holiday. Contact the friendly experts at JTM Homes. We’ll get you moving, fast.
