Demand for all types of houses, from terraced to detached, has more than doubled in the current housing market. A new report from Zoopla shows that family homes are most popular amongst buyers, with demand up 114 per cent compared to levels typically seen at this time of year between 2017 and 2019.
Locally prices have increased year on year, which is currently being fuelled by a severe shortage of new properties coming to the market. Most owners would want to achieve the best price for their home; it goes without saying.
Even in this buoyant market we find ourselves in; your estate agent should still be doing their best to do that for you.
The bigger your marketplace, the more likely you are to get the best price for your home. Therefore, it is important to advertise your home with an agent that uses more of the property portals:
Many buyers and sellers tend to favour one of the two biggest portals: Rightmove and Zoopla, and once chosen tend to stick to that one, probably due to familiarisation and functions. So far, during 2021, telephone and email enquiries from those two portals have been 12765 (as of 28th July), of which 3627 (28%) have been from Zoopla.
When deciding which agent to choose, bear in mind that you could be missing out on a buyer if they are not covering the whole market.
