The Local Property Market is Moving – Are You?

The property market in Haslemere, Liphook and the surrounding villages enjoyed a buoyant summer and demand continues as we move into autumn. Our sales and lettings teams are continually busy with enquiries from perspective home buyers and tenants who are keen to relocate to this area from the city.

Keats sales deal with many first-time buyers who are eager to make the most of the current stamp duty land tax relief. According to the Bank of England, mortgage approvals in July increased to 66,300, up from 39,900 in June.

During August, the volume of UK properties selling within a week of coming to market was 125 per cent greater than the same time last year – according to the UK’s leading property portal Rightmove.

On a local level, official Rightmove data from 1st March 2020 through to 31st August 2020 reveals that Keats achieved the most lets agreed when compared with other local agents. Data is based on the postcode areas GU27, GU28 and GU30.

Rita Tinney, Keats Sales and Lettings Director commented: Now is the ideal time to market or let a property. The local property market is currently booming, and we are delighted to have achieved the most lets agree in our patch over the last six months.

“Rental retirement properties located in Haslemere and Liphook are highly sought after. Retired individuals and couples who currently live in London are now planning to rent property closer to their families or they are seeking access to countryside.

“Since the beginning of lockdown our sales team have registered a high volume of prospective buyers who currently live in the city. Many are searching for their ideal country property, with a home office, good size garden, nearby schools and plenty of green space. Properties meeting these requirements tend to achieve the asking price.
