Across the industry, this is the number one month to list a property.* Foxtons have thousands of serious buyers registering every week, and our team are working hard to find them homes they’ll fall in love with. If you’re hoping to sell, it’s a good time to partner with London’s number one.**

Love is in the air in February

Rightmove reveals February listings typically have ‘the best chance of finding a buyer and finding a buyer more quickly.’


If you want to put a property on the market in 2024, there really is no time like the present.

We’re spreading the word because new Rightmove data reveals February is the best month, across the industry, to list a home, “Homes listed in the industry, typically find a buyer the quickest.”

February’s levels are closely followed by March and January, so this whole season is a big one for buyers.

The RICS monthly survey also confirms buyers are starting – buyer demand is the highest it’s been since February 2022 – read our article about it here.
