No. 1086 from our magazine|2 min read| Published in Magazine on 5 May 2022 by our Marketing Team

Compared to figures recorded three months ago, the typical UK property is now worth a whopping £19,082 more, pushing the average house price up to £360,101. * 
 
The current scarcity of properties continues to be the main driving force behind the steep increase in property prices.
 
What does this mean for you as a seller?
 

Despite more properties coming to the market, the demand for homes still outweighs supply. At present, sellers are successfully finding buyers twice as quickly as at the same time in 2019, and once a buyer has been found, homeowners are achieving top prices for their property.
In fact, statistics show that you could achieve up to 1.6% more for your home than one month ago.
