It seems like every year we talk about how quickly the last year flew by. Life always seems to keep moving whether we are ready for it or not. But the start of a new year can also infuse new energy behind some big life changes like buying or selling your mobile.
How do we know this? Our numbers don’t lie!
Every January within the first few weeks we see a major increase in web traffic on our site.
Both buyers and sellers tend to begin their journey right after the holiday season. Maybe it’s energy of a new year, the chilly weather or the realization of needing more space after all of the relatives have visited the last holiday season. It could be any or all of these factors that inspire buyers and sellers to get in gear.
2018 has continued in this trend with record high traffic since January 1st!
