The best months to sell your home are here!

Camberley, Chobham, Fleet and Yateley, it’s time to spring into action and list your property for sale with Waterfords Estate Agents…

  • Over the past five years (excluding 2020), the number of buyer enquiries per property for sale has been highest during the months of March, April and May.
  • Currently around 75% of properties are successfully finding a buyer, compared to a historical average of around 50%.
  • Properties are selling, subject to contract, 20 days quicker than the five-year average.

With interest rates anticipated to rise in small increments over the course of 2022, spring sounds like an excellent time to sell!

Best ever spring sellers’ market as prices hit another new record

Another new price record has been achieved as the average price of property coming to market jumps by 1.7% (+£5,760) this month to £354,564, breaking through the £350,000 barrier for the first time. The average monthly rise is the largest seen at this time of year since March 2004, pushing the annual rate of increase to 10.4%, with all regions and countries except London and Scotland now up over 10% annually

Most expensive sector of four bedrooms plus sees average 3.8% (+£23,619) monthly price surge encouraging new sellers to come to market, with 12% more new listings in this sector than at this time last year.

For those looking to move this is the best ever spring sellers’ market, and not just because of record price levels. We enter the spring selling season with the biggest mismatch between supply and demand for this time of year ever measured by Rightmove, with more than twice as many buyers as sellers. The chance of finding a buyer in first week of marketing your property is at it's highest ever, and twice as likely compared to same period in 2019.
