When should I market my St Albans home in 2022? 15 Jan 2022
2021 was a phenomenal year for us at Heartwood Homes and the property market with record breaking numbers of properties sold across the area resulting in a 10.4% increase to property prices year on year*.
2022 has got off to a flying start, usually we would expect the market to slowly build in this period, however there seems to be an increased energy from buyers. Currently there are more buyers than sellers in the market resulting in a strong sellers-market.
In most, normal, years (what is normal these days!) we would advise our clients to start marketing their properties in February/March, when the market is at its busiest. We are seeing a large number of valuations at the moment, but many are still planning to market in the early spring, however our advice to everyone that we speak to is to market now and take advantage whilst demand is strong and stock levels are relatively low.
If you are looking to move and starting to search the property portals we would always advise securing a buyer on your home first, this way when your dream home is launched to market you are ready with a strong chain to put in a credible offer.
If you would be interested in chatting through your plans and understanding the value of your home please do get in touch, we are happy to advise and give you the advice that we believe works best for your individual requirements. Call us on 01727 638333 or email email@example.com today.
