New Year, New Beginnings

Many home movers will view the new year as an excellent time to make new beginnings. January symbolises fresh starts and resolutions. Homeowners are often motivated in this period to sell their homes and start a new chapter in their lives. There are extensive positive reasons why people will move to Canary Wharf & Docklands, Bow & Bethnal Green, Rotherhithe & Bermondsey and Chislehurst & Bromley in 2024. And while individual circumstances vary, we present some common reasons people sell and buy property at the start of each year.

Will a new property be your new beginning?

Job Relocation: New career opportunities or a job relocation can often prompt individuals to sell their homes or seek new ones. The new year may coincide with a job change, leading to a decision to move to a more convenient location.

Property Upgrades: In January, there will be an increased number of properties for sale for homeowners looking to upgrade their living conditions or invest in a larger or more desirable property. 

Financial Goals: Some homeowners may have financial goals that involve selling their property to downsize, upgrade, or invest in other ventures. The start of the new year can serve as a strategic time to align real estate decisions with broader financial objectives. 

Market Forces: With increased market activity, the new year is a favourable time to sell. There will be the traditional uplift of buyers and sellers in the new year, taking advantage of new opportunities after the festive season by starting searches or organising valuations.

The teams at Alex Neil work hard all year round, and we are ready to discuss your new year's moving plans.
