In this short read, we pull back the covers to see why the property market in Bromley has insomnia and discover that’s no bad thing for local property owners. PLUS, three bonus tips on getting a good night’s sleep ;-)

Is the floor to ceiling coverage of the General Election causing you to switch off? Is the seemingly never-ending story called Brexit sending you to sleep?

And with Christmas starting to creep into our consciousness you may well feel you’re in need of a lie-down. Allow us to shatter a sleep myth. Counting sheep doesn’t work!

Another myth is the property market in Bromley goes to sleep at this time of year, and then stirs into action come mid-January. The truth is, the property market locally has insomnia and being digital allows it to keep turning.

Yes, it certainly calms down in the run-up to an election or Christmas, but good estate agencies understand it never enters the realm of deep sleep if you know what you’re doing.

That’s because serious buyers are always out there. There is always a part of the market that has a necessity to move. Many want to be in their new homes early 2020, so they are searching with real intent right now.

This means putting your property on the market in November gives you a great chance of getting interest and in front of these wide-awake potential buyers.

There’s always a section of buyers who move regardless of elections, political uncertainty or looming festive periods and seasonal shutdowns. And our database has plenty of them poised to leap out of bed should the right home become available.

Getting your property on the market now if you need to sell could prove to be your best decision of 2019, but don’t lose sleep over it.

If you do struggle to get a good night’s sleep, you’ll find sweet dreams are made of these three top tips.

  1. Have a regular bedtime and getting up time. (Easier said than done if you have small children).
  2. Switch your phone off at 8 pm, swap your tablet / iPad for a book and let your brain and body unwind.
  3. Avoid caffeine, alcohol and strenuous exercise before hitting the hay as these all stimulate parts of the mind and body that make drifting off into deep sleep much harder to achieve.
