It might come as a surprise to some, but the real estate market experiences a significant surge during the festive period. Despite the economic uncertainties that last year brought, the real estate market has shown resilience, with buyer demand soaring to new heights. According to recent figures from Rightmove, buyer demand surged by a staggering 23% during last year's festive period compared to 2021. This phenomenon, interestingly known as the 'Boxing Day Boom', seems to be gearing up for another round this year.

Traditionally, January is a time when many new properties get listed on the market.

It seems that the festive celebrations provide the perfect backdrop for people to start looking for their dream homes. Last year, there was a 70% spike in property browsing on Rightmove right after Christmas Day. The period between Boxing Day and New Year's witnessed a record-breaking 150 million site visits! That's a testament to how much activity the real estate market sees during this time.
