Seymours Estate Agents in Godalming Experience an Increase in Chain-Free Property Listings

The stamp duty holiday extension, combined with an increase in demand for property across Godalming and the surrounding areas, has clearly influenced buyer behaviour.

Renting before buying a property

Vendors opting to move into rental properties before they embark on a home search are putting themselves in a strong position to sell and they have the benefit of being chain-free when their ideal property comes to market.

New data from Denton House Research* reveals that in the South East of England 35% of properties listed on Rightmove are chain-free.

The Godalming property market

Stewart Palmer Owner of Seymours Godalming commented: “The local market is competitive, and over recent months we have registered a number of clients who have sold up and moved into rental. Due to market conditions, they made the decision to become chain-free so that they can make an offer as soon as they find their ideal home.

“These buyers have spent time with our team to discuss what they need from their next home, confirming their ideal location and budget. As soon as we bring a property to market that meets their criteria we will notify them and arrange a viewing.”

“Desirable properties listed with us generally gain a flurry of interest as soon marketing begins, with some vendors receiving offers within a matter of days. Offers from those who are in the strongest position to buy, either chain-free or with the shortest chains, are often more attractive to vendors.”
