Buying and selling over Christmas

Top Selling tips from the Guild of Agents

Many people think that trying to move house over the festive period is a mistake, but that is no longer that case. People have more free time and motivation to make a change in the New Year, so it can be a great time to buy and sell. Guild agents share their top tips.
