Boxing Day means getting ready to move for thousands of Scots

East Scotland housebuilder Dandara has reported a record number of visits to its website on Boxing Day this year from homebuyers looking for a new home north of the border. Boxing Day is well known as an opportune time to consider making a move into a new home and Dandara’s figures reflect this trend. The site experienced high demand on the day after Christmas with 55% more visits to the website than on other days throughout December; highlighting a continued demand from households to make a move.

Head of Sales at Dandara East Scotland Lisa Archibald said: “This year we have already seen record breaking demand for new homes sales and so we were surprised to see these figures rise again. Yet we have still seen further interest from homebuyers looking to make a move into one of our brand-new homes. Enquiries suggest this is partly still from buyers from city centre locations looking for more space but also those seeing the benefits of a warmer and better insulated brand new home.”

“With such huge interest in our new homes over the festive period, we are now looking forward to welcoming visitors to our exciting show homes across the Midlothian’s at the start of the New Year.”
