New Year spike in demand for property

New_Year_Peak_Blog_ImageWith the New Year peak in house hunting under way, the gap between the number of potential buyers looking for homes and the volume of property available for purchase is widening at pace.



With approximately 10 potential buyers for every home on the market according to the national association of Estate Agents, now is a great time to sell.

The uplift in demand and reduction in supply means house prices are stronger than ever with the NAEA also warning of 50% rise in house prices to an average of £420,000 by the year 2025.

Mark Hayward, managing director of the NAEA, said: ‘It’s very normal at this time of year that demand is high and supply is low. House hunters hoping to find their dream property in the New Year have registered interest with agents’ This coupled with the fact that many sellers won’t get their properties onto the market until mid-January means that more and more people are competing for fewer properties.

For potential sellers the current market conditions provide a perfect opportunity to showcase your home and receive maximum exposure with the potential to make a quick sale at a great price.
