Selling your home in Barnet in 2022?

This year has already seen an upturn in the Barnet property market with considerably more seller activity. The combination of the easing of Covid restrictions, new year resolutions and the fact that people just wanting to get their lives moving again, has all made for a surge in activity.

In Barnet, compared to the same time last year, we have seen a 21% increase in the number of buyer enquiries registering on our mailing list. As well as a record number of home owners that have arranged for their property to be valued and planning a home move in 2022.

Buying a home in Barnet in 2022?

If you are thinking of a move this year, and certainly if you have an existing home that needs to be sold to enable you to buy another property, my advice is not to put yourself under pressure, as I see so many do.

Looking and finding your dream home without being able to proceed immediately is not the best approach in this very competitive property market. The result is almost always losing out to someone that is.

By all means, look around to see what’s available in your price range, but then get yourself in a strong buying position, put your home on the market and when you have an acceptable offer then you are in prime position to go and find that new dream home.

Taking advantage of sellers’ market

Early 2022 has seen the return of more normal seasonal moving trends, with many local people planning a spring move with lighter evening and hopefully warmer weather. Although, a good number of sellers’ having taken an early initiative and put their property on the market have already succeeded in achieving a sale, often very quickly and more often than not at or over the asking price.

There are countless examples of the current pace of the local property market, we were recently instructed to market a property in Willenhall Avenue, Barnet, viewings scheduled over two weekends totalled 31 resulting in offers received from 6 different parties and an agreed sale price in excess of asking price.  Quite typical in the current market with similar successes of a property in The Croft High  Barnet, the property was on the market for two weeks with 25 viewing appointments and four offers received.  Many more similar successes include sales in Union Street, Cedar Lawn Avenue, Manor Road, Mays Lane and Hillside Gardens to name a few.

In the current market, where buyer demand remains strong and often outstrips the supply of new property stock coming to the market. The savvy home owner is taking maximum advantage of the high levels of buyer demand and are often rewarded by selling quickly and achieving the very best prices.

Our advice to local property sellers is to take advantage of the strong sellers’ market and agree a sale early to benefit from the current favourable conditions.

If you require any help or advice, please give me a call anytime.

Until next month, good luck with your house hunting.
