Estate Agents love Christmas time

and it is not just because of the prospect of office parties or long client lunches. Traditionally the day to day market activity in December with new instructions to sell and rent are at a calendar year low and it is all about getting ready for the New Year. This year the office has been much busier than I would have expected which is excellent news. Several properties have been let within days of coming on to the market and buyers are still making offers on properties for sale.
