New season sees demand for homes

Like spring itself, the property market has burst into life much earlier than we usually see as there is no let-up in demand.

Asking prices were up 1.8% in March, the biggest ever climb recorded in that month according to Rightmove.

As average property prices in March exceed £350,000 for the first time in the UK, here are three of the most compelling reasons to get your house on the market now and get moving!

Our own property expert and Partner here at Phillips George, Clare Phillips says that houses are selling fast;

“Houses around Leicestershire are flying off the shelf like hot cakes,” she tells us, “and this is backed up nationally by the latest figures from Rightmove which says that the change of finding a buyer for your home in the first week is higher than it has ever been and has doubled since 2019.”

Three compelling reasons to get your home on the market right now

So why should you put your house on the market now? These three reasons are a good start:

1. There is every chance you will achieve a record price for your sale

Prices are on their way up with no sign of the market slowing, even over winter, traditionally a quiet time for sales, prices continued to grow.

2. You will most likely have several buyers competing to buy your house

It is a seller’s market, and these are the perfect conditions for selling, when there is unprecedented demand for housing. Having several buyers interested in your home pushes the price up significantly.

3. You have the best chance ever to find a buyer within the first week

We have never seen such a fast-moving market, which means not only more money for your sale but less stress and hassle as your home is very unlikely to be on the market for very long.

Now is the time to act to get your house on the market. We at Phillips George are very proud of our reputation for being the best estate agent in the area and love the brilliant feedback we are enjoying reading the many five-star reviews from our happy clients.
