There has already been an increased level of interest from people planning to sell their home. We’re forecasting that the number of properties for sale will grow between now and the first three months of 2022. Research from Rightmove shows that between Boxing Day and the start of January a record number of people were looking at properties for sale. Buyer demand increased 23% compared to last year and new sellers were up 21% over the same period.
Tim Bannister, Director of property data at Rightmove, said: “Boxing Day traditionally signals the start of activity ramping up as people turn their attention from turkey and trimmings to their plans for 2022, and activity is set to increase further as January unfolds and people start to settle down into a routine after the December break.”
“Despite the frenzied market activity, we saw throughout 2021, we’ve recorded even higher levels of buyer demand in the period between Boxing Day and the New Year this year, driven by a sustained desire to get on and move.”
“Not only this, but the increased number of new homes up for sale on Boxing Day compared to last year, signals a new group of sellers coming to market who have made it their New Year’s resolution to move in 2022.”
Whilst interest rates have increased slightly, there’s a wide range of mortgages and buyers are waiting for homes to become available, so it’s an excellent time to consider selling your property.
