Andrew Lodge Estate Agents Encourage Buyers and sellers to act now to move in time for Christmas

Company news :   21 - 10 - 21

Homeowners across Farnham and the surrounding villages are preparing for the pre-Christmas rush, and with the property demand-supply imbalance still providing sellers with optimal market conditions, it’s likely we will see more sales over the coming months.


Our expert team at Andrew Lodge Estate Agents are busy marketing an exciting portfolio of properties, from character cottages and family homes, through to luxury apartments. According to official Rightmove data we achieved more sales agreed in the £500,000 to £2m price bracket than any other local agent between 1st April 2021 and 1st October 2021, across the GU9 and GU10 postcode patches.


We continue to deal with a high volume of enquires from buyers who are looking to relocate our area, with huge demand for homes in the £500,000 to £2 million price bracket, making now the ideal time to consider marketing your property.


Every year, buyers and sellers are swept up in a flurry of market activity throughout the autumn, with October standing out as a busy period for selling activity.


Will you be in your new home by Christmas? Here’s where you should start:


Ensure your property is sale ready

Our experts will be able to advise you if there are any features of your home that require updating to make your property more appealing to potential buyers.

If anything is flagged up, try to get it fixed before your property goes on the market, as doing this will mean you are more likely to achieve a speedy sale.


Paperwork at the ready

Ultimately, the quicker that your paperwork is processed by the solicitors, the quicker the sale can get going.

Delays with paperwork can slow down the moving process significantly, so pre-empt any requests for certificates or documentation by having it all in one place and ready when called upon.

Likewise, calling ahead to organise van hire or a removals company will ensure there are no issues on the move day itself.


Declutter thoroughly 

With December not far off, it would be a good idea to start sifting through your belongings now to work out what will be moving with you and what is no longer needed.

A clearer living space will also make your property photos more visually appealing to buyers, while making it that much easier for you to unpack and set up once you have moved into your new home.
