Week four proved to be another busy week, and the month as a whole was a busy one. Collectively we registered 1014 new potential buyers, arrange 1220 viewings, received 233 offers and carried out 300 market appraisals.
Sales agreed over the last few months have been very good; however, the path to completion of contracts has been a difficult one. Selling a property is a complicated process, with several stages and multiple people involved to get through the whole process to completion.
According to data from ViewMyChain.com, receiving an offer once the property is on the market can take around ten weeks, your buyer arranging a solicitor can take well over a month and arranging their mortgage can take up to six weeks, and that’s just a few of the tasks the buyer has to tick off. The solicitors, surveyors and estate agent will also all have their own tasks to complete before the job is done. When all combined, the average time it takes to sell a property from going on the market to completion is six months. With this in mind, you should give yourself plenty of time to sell your property so that you have the best possible chance to take advantage of the stamp duty holiday.
