With a 10 per cent rise in people requesting to have their property valued this January compared to last year, Atkinson Stilgoe in Kenilworth is advising both sellers and buyers that now is a brilliant time to start thinking about your property search.

With an uplift in people looking to sell their property and demand from buyers continuing unabated, Atkinson Stilgoe is seeing a high level of activity from home movers and first time buyers as they look to secure their dream home whilst general market conditions are strong.

Branch manager Beth Horner said: “We’ve seen a rise in interest from potential sellers who are keen to have their property valued. This indicates more properties potentially coming onto the market in the near future.

“This is fantastic news for buyers locally who are still heavily outweighing the supply of homes available. With mortgage rates currently low, competitive mortgage products and attractive schemes such as Help to Buy available, now presents a window of opportunity for both buyers and sellers to lock down their next property.”

As the property market continues to perform buoyantly, Atkinson Stilgoe is advising homeowners thinking of selling, to get the ball rolling now.

Beth added: “Property prices are rising steadily and buyers ‘appetite is still strong.

“With plenty of people keen to secure a property in the early half of the year, now is a great time to explore your options and get moved.”
