Kent is a popular county to live in, and it’s a great place to move to if you’re hoping for a fresh start in a beautiful place.
So if you’ve been thinking of moving home for a while, now is a good time to just go for it.
Christmas is fast approaching which means the time for buying a new home before the new year is fast running out. The average settlement on a property contract is 42 days, and there are just over 70 left until Christmas.
But what’s so great about moving into a new home before Christmas? Here are some of the many advantages of buying a new home in Kent before Christmas.
You’ll get to join in with your new community’s festivities
Wherever you decide to buy, you can be sure that the village, town or city you move to will have a lot going on around the festive period.
Joining in on these festive activities is a good way to throw yourself into the community, and meet other locals.
Once you feel a part of the local community, that’s when you’ll start to feel truly at home.
You’ll get in before the quiet winter market
When the Christmas period hits, there aren’t usually many houses on the market. Not many people want the hassle that comes with a move over the special holiday.
So if you leave it too late, and try to buy over the Christmas period, you’re less likely to find the home of your dreams.
The new year will be a completely fresh start
If you’re hoping for a completely fresh start with your new home, it will be nice to have the whole year to enjoy it.
Moving before Christmas means that when the new year comes around, you’ll already have gone through the uprooting part of moving house and you’ll be ready to start enjoying your new lifestyle and home.
You’ll get to enjoy Christmas in your new home
Christmas is exciting enough, but when you throw a new home into the mix as well, it gets even better. The novelty of Christmas and a new home is a whole bundle of excitement for the whole family.
You’ll get to try out the living space by inviting family members over, and you’ll get to try out the kitchen when you bake home made Christmas snacks. Perfect.
