Homeowners who are contemplating a house move before next spring (2022) should be appointing a selling agent sooner rather than later before this year’s end.

That’s the message coming from Shouler & Son's residential sales professionals who are issuing this advice to homeowners looking to secure the best advantage in what looks set to be a busy first quarter of 2022 in and around the Melton Mowbray and adjoining Rutland, Leicestershire and Lincolnshire property ‘hot spot’ areas.

The residential team confirms that it has already undertaken a series of market appraisals and house valuations in the area this autumn for sellers who are getting ahead of the first part of the new year - traditionally a busy time in the house buying and selling market.

Another benefit to those looking to sell their home in the coming year is that by engaging an agent now, professional marketing materials can be produced and photography arranged before the festive break.

As Simon Johnson, Partner, Shouler & Son - who has over 34 years experience of selling homes in the area - explains, preparing now for January viewings has many advantages.

He says, “It may sound like a trivial point, but to have photography taken ahead of decking the halls – or the sitting room – for Christmas will present the house at its best visually for launching to market in January.

While daylight is limited in these months of the year, the best agents will always ensure professional photography shows a home in its best light.

In making their move now to prepare with their agent for selling in the first part of the coming year, homeowners put themselves in the best position to capitalise on that well-motivated set of house hunters who are quick off the mark as soon as New Year’s Eve celebrations have worn off.”
