Property searches often spike in January
Christmas is the time for indulging, spending time with family and watching all the classics.
As we head into the New Year, we’ve always found a renewed interest from homeowners and tenants, with enquiries and property searches at an all-time high.
We’ve all spent more time than ever at home in 2021, so you might find yourself planning what your 2022 Christmas could look like and whether you’d like to spend it living elsewhere.
Whilst it’s commonly believed that spring and summer see the strongest market activity, year-after-year January has stood out as a time when online searches peak and more people are ready to make and accept offers in a fast timeframe.
Who chooses to move at this time of the year?
The new year property market usually consists of two types of people: first-time buyers and those re-entering the market after trying in the previous year.
In the spring and summer, the market typically becomes much more competitive, with higher supply levels.
If you want a fresh start in 2022, start the process now by instructing your agent, planning your property marketing strategy and taking advantage of the surge in buyer interest.
Whilst we all hoped the pandemic would be contained within 2021, it’s now a confirmed reality that it will continue into 2022.
For that reason, we’re committed to continuing all of the safety measures and social distancing practices we’ve implemented this year.

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.
