The good news is, as valuations turn into instructions, more and more properties will come onto the market, giving buyers some fresh choice. In January, the seaside town of Bexhill-on-Sea in East Sussex, 88% more sellers put their homes on the market than in January 2021. The borough of High Peak in Derbyshire came in at a close second, with an 82% year-on-year increase in new sellers coming to the market, followed by the city of Chelmsford in Essex, with a 58% rise in new properties for sale versus the same time last year. *
 
Tim Bannister, director of a well-known property portal, advises: "The market has picked up pace and it’s a really encouraging sign to see more properties starting to come to market for sale. To put yourself in the best possible position, you should become a ‘power-buyer’ by making sure your current home is on the market, or preferably sold subject to contract first, before starting the search for your new home."
