Homes for sale remain in short supply

News at Waterfords | 23/04/2022

Waterfords Estate Agents in Camberley, Fleet, Chobham and Yateley bring you the latest property market trends to help you make an informed decision about selling your property. The number of homes listed for sale is still 9% lower than this time last year according to latest research*. Low stock levels, combined with relatively high demand, create log-jams for would-be home movers.

Despite healthy levels of demand across most of the country, the average time to sell a home rose from 90 days to 115 during 2021, according to Zoopla. The slowdown is generally attributed to difficulty in completing chains.

Moving into rented accommodation is a tried and tested way for vendors to break the chain and improve their prospects of becoming the preferred buyer. However, the number of homes available to rent is down by 25% on last year.
