Winter is one of the best times to sell a property you own and believe it or not, New Year momentum starts building as early as Christmas Day.
Every January property portal Rigtmove publishes its visitor numbers for the Christmas period, with a peak usually seen on Boxing Day but with over 1 million people home-hunting online between unwrapping presents and eating turkey on Christmas Day itself!
