Off-plan purchases are to become more popular in 2022 

The National Association of Property Buyers has predicted that in 2022, over 47% of new-build properties are likely to be sold off-plan.

Buying off-plan means buying a house or flat before it has been built. With early-bird discounts, it can be an easy way to save a bit of money and, as house prices continue to climb, by the time you move in, it may be worth more than you paid. 
 
After thousands of home buyers have endured high levels of financial uncertainty over the past two years, it is easy to see the appeal of paying a fixed price when buying off-plan. Many buyers will also be eligible for the First Homes Scheme and/or a Help to Buy equity loan.  
 
With a shortage of properties coming to the market, committing to a new-build off-plan can be a good way to secure the home you want. It can also enable you to snap up a new development’s best plot and, potentially, enjoy the luxury of choosing your preferred colour schemes, fixtures, and fittings.  
 
Buying off-plan comes with a formal agreement, meaning the risk of a purchase falling through is very low. It is also much less likely to be affected by a chain and may offer the opportunity to part-exchange your existing home, eliminating the need to put your own house on the market.

One in three properties receive an offer one hour after viewing

The housing market once again exceeds expectations after a poor reception from the chancellor’s mini-budget and regular talk of a possible slowdown, as current research suggests that in 2022, almost a third (31%) of properties are now receiving offers within an hour, compared to a mere 7% in 2018.
