Dreaming of completing your home sale in time for Christmas?  According to the latest data from TwentyCi, if you're thinking of adding a new home to your Christmas list this year, then you will be disappointed come December 25th. If you hadn't accepted an offer by mid-August, then you've missed the last post for a Christmas move.

Based on current completion times, if an average estate agent took on a property on 1st October, your moving date would be February 20th...too late to even catch Valentines Day in your new home.

2021 completion times are longer than 2019

The average time to complete on a property in the UK in September was 17.6 weeks compared to 13.4 weeks in 2019. Added to the time to list and receive an offer, the total time to move from the time of listing is between 20 and 25 weeks for most of the UK (see geographic breakdown below).
