Third busiest month on record for property sales

Waterfords Estate Agents based in Chobham, Camberley, Yateley and Fleet closely monitor the local and national housing market to bring you the latest updates.

September 2021 was the third busiest month for property sales across the UK since records began in 2005. It is estimated that close to 161,000 sales took place, compared to 199,000 in June 2021 and nearly 177,000 in March 2016, prior to the 3% SDLT surcharge.

Although sales volumes dipped over the summer months, sales activity in 2021 has far outstripped longer term averages. Sales volumes for the final quarter will need to be 17% higher than in 2020 to make 2021 the busiest sales market on record.

At Waterfords Estate Agents we have certainly noticed just how busy it has been across our branch network. We expect the busy period to continue throughout the autumn and into winter.

We need more houses and apartments to sell in the Camberley, Chobham, Fleet and Yateley area for our long list of buyers. If you would like to know how much your home is worth, then please get in touch for a free, no obligation appraisal of your property. It is probably worth a lot more than you think given current market conditions…
