Buyer and seller confidence is growing, with a good volume of sales being agreed this summer. According to Rightmove our team at Keats have sold more properties than all other Haslemere estate agents in the GU27 postcode area.*
Despite a period of uncertainty, the local housing market is stable, and we have a steady stream of sales to progress. Property across Haslemere and the surrounding areas continues to be highly desirable and asking prices are up by 3.2% year-on-year in Surrey.**
Inflation is starting to come down, albeit little slower than hoped but longer term market forecasts indicate that increases will come to an end. Those planning to move will be able to better plan ahead as average fixed-rate mortgages are starting to stabilise.
All in all, there is a positive outlook for the property market which is reflected in the latest housing market update from property portal OnTheMarket (OTM). The data from OTM reveals that 70% of UK buyers are confident that they would buy a property within the next three months.
