Online property commercial and overseas report December 2013

27th Jan 2014

Analysis of recent figures has shown that there was a general decline in the number of people visiting the NetMovers site throughout the month of December. Although the number of commercial properties page views fell by 32.10% and the number of commercial property enquiries dropped by 47.83%, this is not unexpected for this time of year.

With many employees taking time off work throughout December, many staff members are simply unable to continue searching for new commercial properties during this time.

Similarly, a significant number of businesses now close over the whole festive period which obviously limits the time that staff have to conduct searches for commercial properties. With many companies now entering the end of their tax year, it’s not surprising the fewer people are taking the time to look for new commercial properties.

However, with the festive season behind us once again, we would expect to see an increase in the number of people looking for commercial properties throughout the New Year.

With the Christmas break resulting in a general decline in site activity, there has been a surprising increase in relation to certain types of properties. Although page views for overseas properties fell by 29.90% in December, the number of enquiries relating to overseas properties increased by a staggering 266.67%.

With many people keen to get away for some much-need sun during the winter, it seems that more and more of us are interested in taking on property overseas.

As the cost of flights and travel are often cheaper during this time of year, it seems that many of us are keen to take advantage of the opportunity to invest in overseas properties and reduce the cost of holidaying every year.

NetMovers Sales Director, Avais Sarwar, spoke about this month’s figures, saying:

“Although we generally expect there to be a decrease in site activity during this time of the year, we are pleased to report a significant increase in the number of enquiries relating to overseas properties.

We look forward to helping people look for new properties abroad and encourage people looking for both overseas and commercial properties to contact us.”
