As 2018 gets underway, we are starting to see a fresh energy in the local property market.
Many people are seizing the opportunity that the new year brings to plan their next move. New properties are entering the market everyday as people anticipate making a move in spring or early summer.
Offering properties to the market early in the year is a great approach as it helps to ensure that a buyer is quickly secured, placing sellers in a strong position for completing their onward move before the year is over.
At this time of year, the continued increase in supply of properties to the marketplace is in part due to parents of children who will be starting school this year, as they hope to be settled into a new property before school begins in September. Surrey has a fantastic selection of local schools, so parents oMen move into the area to provide their children with the best education.
Richard Stovold, director at Seymours Burpham comments, ‘It is an extremely buoyant time for the local property market. Demand for properties usually reaches a peak in February as the Christmas holidays have afforded people the time to look online for their new home. Home owners are now ready to get the ball moving and relocate to their perfect new home in 2018.’
