Rightmove have seen demand surge with visits up 21% in the first working week of 2016 compared to he same period in 2015.
Good news for first -time buyers with a 6.6% year-on-year increase in the number of fresh-to-the-market homes in their target sector of two bedrooms or fewer, the highest since 2007.
Prime Property Finders have received a healthy demand from UK based and overseas clients over the Christmas and New Year period. As search agents in London and the South East we have had enquiries for central London relocation and purchases in the Chelsea, Kensington and Battersea areas. The ever popular Surrey home search is continuing with clients looking to purchase main and second homes in Guildford and Godalming areas where prime housing stock is rare and snapped up quickly.
Requests for relocating to Kent is surging as I predicted some 12-18 months ago. We have found clients keen on Bromley with the fast commute, including Bickley and Chislehurst and out to Sevenoaks. Deeper into Kent demand for quality country living is rising fast around the catchment area of Cranbrook school, and within close proximity of Canterbury with its excellent schools and fast commute to London.
