This is the season where growing ideas finally bloom, and with green shoots in London’s housing market, there is an opportunity to get your property sale completed fast. That’s why we’re urging homeowners to Spring into Action to make the most of this market.

Good news in the market

Rightmove’s latest House Price Index shows a spring revival in the house market, with a 1.5% price increase in March, which is “notably higher than the 22-year average of 1.0%.” According to the report, buyers are ready to make their move now with an 8% increase in demand compared to the same time last year, led by London.

The House Price Index notes that the time it takes to find a buyer is now at "71 days, the longest at this time of year since 2019." Rightmove goes on to say, "Attractively priced properties are quickly being cherry-picked, but over-optimistically priced sellers are taking longer to find the right buyer" (Source).

We can help you find the sweet spot of attractive pricing that'll make the most of the local market, your home's unique selling points and get buyers through the door. However, if you need your sale faster, we have another route to consider...

Spring into Auctions

This is the perfect route for motivated sellers - whether you have a short lease, a lagging sale or even if you’re just longing for a quicker turnaround to move on to your dream home sooner. While the spring market picks up speed, the right auction will help you achieve your goals:

• Our team are experienced and determined, using the immense Foxtons database to inform your sale.

• All buyers are pre-qualified. They all submit a buying deposit and all bids are public, so you can rest assured the winning buyer is serious.

• We’ll start conducting viewings as soon as possible, and continue until your house is sold either in the auction or before – 99% of our properties so far this year sell before the auction on average.
