1 in 5 homes snapped up in first week of marketing!

Newly marketed properties are being snapped up incredibly fast, with Rightmove reporting that 22% of deals are agreed within the first week of being listed for sale.

This is more than double what was seen at the same time in 2019 and reflects the continued large disparity between supply and demand in the UK housing market.

Over 60% of estate agents in the latest Dataloft subscriber poll reported that properties were selling, on average, in 4 property viewings or less.

With momentum in the market high, close to 2 in 5 properties (39%) are selling for over the asking price.

With the demand from house hunters looking to buy a home in Surrey, Hampshire and Berkshire still incredibly high, it is an excellent time to find out how much your property is worth. If you are looking to buy a home then it is recommended that you register with a trusted local estate agent like Waterfords to ensure you are the first to know of homes coming on the market before they hit Rightmove and competition becomes more fierce.
