21% increase in demand from buyers and tenants


As your trusted estate agent in Camberley, Chobham, Fleet and Yateley, Waterfords have noticed the number of buyers and tenants enquiring on properties for sale and to let has been elevated in the first weeks of 2021.

In fact in January and the first two weeks of February, we have had 95% more new applicants register with us compared to the same period in 2020! Demand for housing has dramatically increased in recent weeks, with a trend of people looking to leave urban areas in search of properties closer to greenspace and with larger gardens.

It turns out that Waterfords Estate Agents are not alone in this trend. According to Rightmove, the number of prospective buyers contacting estate agents in January is 7% higher than a year earlier. Enquiries about a property to rent are 14% higher as well.
