Find out what is going on in the Sandhurst property market and why now is a great time to sell your property.
House prices remain steady after an 8.5% annual increase reported in September.
As has been the case throughout the year, demand for homes is continuing to outweigh supply locally, which is excellent news for potential sellers. As we approach the winter months the market will undoubtably change, but with the inevitable New Year rush fast approaching, local trends show that now is an excellent time to move home while supply is still low. We’ve seen an increase in buyers moving to Sandhurst, Yateley and Blackwater from out of the area, most notably Londoners. This could be for a multitude of reasons but is most likely a result of businesses employing a ‘work from home’ structure in their organisations. Buyers are looking to move to the home counties, where the average house price is lower than living in the city and they can afford a better quality of life, more space to work from and ease of access into London when needed.
For buyers, it’s important to stay in contact with your local estate agent (we’re here to help!) and be kept informed about new properties coming to market. Before a property is marketed on the main portals, we’ll have filmed our marketing videos, shared across social media platforms, and started to contact anyone that we feel could be interested. If the first time you see a property is when it launches on Rightmove, you’re already behind the crowd and need to act fast.
Over one million home sales had been recorded in 2021 by the end of August, and we expect that by the end of the year, there will be more sales in 2021 than any year since the financial crisis in 2008.
With this in mind, could it be time to put your property on the market? Whether you’d like to book a valuation or would just like a friendly chat about your options, give us a call today.
