Put your property on the market now to get the best rent in January

If looking to ‘get let’ in January is at the top of your list of priorities for 2015, don’t delay until the new year to start the process. Make the most of the festive house hunting traffic and act now. Right now.

Finders Keepers sealed a total of 314 lets during December 2013 and January 2014, illustrating that house hunters are still actively searching for their perfect home over the party season. It is important to note however that much of the leg work behind these successful lets had been completed in advance. Potential tenants will typically start making enquiries throughout December. The holiday week is then an opportunity for them to consider and discuss properties with those around them, meaning that they are ready to proceed at the start of business in January.

If you as a landlord are considering waiting until January to contact us, do not underestimate the number of people that will also be searching for their next home on Christmas day itself. Rightmove reported more than 1.6 million visits from Christmas Eve to Boxing Day last year as people escaped the festive merry-go-round of present opening, eating and drinking and channelled their focus towards the new year. Don’t join the mind set of the masses and risk missing the boat.

In short, you need to start taking active steps now to put your property on the market – and on – in order to attract the best tenants. Listing your property with Finders Keepers will mean that you can start your new year with a bang, safe in the knowledge that your property will be reaching its full rental potential.
