Tips to help you secure your dream home

Inspiration :   18 - 11 - 21

With Christmas not far off, our team at Andrew Lodge Estate Agents are well aware that many homeowners and buyers will now be readying themselves for the new year, new home surge that will inevitably see high demand for Farnham property.

Having spent one last Christmas at home, many people make the decision to buy shortly after the festivities have calmed down, which helps explain why website traffic to sites such as Rightmove see such phenomenal figures.

Year on year, Rightmove reports a surge in visitors looking at available properties for sale.

As a buyer, it’s very likely you’ll be competing for properties in January and February, as stock will gradually build up but not at the same rate as interested would-be homebuyers.

How can you make yourself the ideal buyer?

Having your finances organised will put you in good stead with any seller, whether that is as a cash buyer or with an approved mortgage and lender behind you.

By having your current property listed on the market or Sold Subject to Contract (SSTC) will demonstrate your motivation to progress quickly with the sale and will put you in a strong position to buy.

Property chains can be fragile, so leaving things until the last minute or causing delays by not having the proper paperwork could lead to your sale or purchase falling through.

If you’re proactive in your search, you’ll also be better informed about local market conditions.

Our team at Andrew Lodge Estate AgentsĀ  will be pleased to discuss any aspect of your home selling and buying journey.
