Planning on moving in 2022?

If you’re thinking of moving home this year, then here’s some useful information which will help you plan ahead

The market in 2022

While we can’t predict exactly what will happen, it’s realistic to expect that the market will settle down and not be quite so frantic as it was last year. Although we expect it will still be a busy market as we are receiving high levels of enquiries about both valuations and viewings.


Selling in 2022

If you’re looking to sell your home this year, you’re likely to find a motivated buyer pretty quickly, as long as your home is listed at a realistic asking price. 2021 put sellers in an incredibly strong position as there were not enough houses on the market to cope with the levels of demand but moving further into 2022 this should even out, and we hope to see a more balanced market.


Buying in 2022

January offers a real kick-start to the property market as many people who were thinking of putting their home on the market the previous year decide to go for it in January. So you’ll start to see more properties come onto the market in the lead up to Spring.


Demand will still be high though so it’s important to be ready to buy. Think about how you can get ahead of the competition to secure your next home. Securing a buyer for your own property first and getting a mortgage agreement in principle will improve the chances of your offer being accepted above any others and will also speed up the home buying process.
