The Godalming property market is in the spotlight as Seymours achieves top results


As you ponder whether to sell or let your property in the current climate, it’s important to fully understand local market activity according to Stewart Palmer, co-owner of Seymours Godalming. Here Stewart provides an insight into the local property market which may shape your decision when it comes to acting now or in the near future.

“My career in the property industry spans almost 25 years and I joined Seymours in 2009. This was during the last property crash in the UK, when the country went through a prolonged recession. House prices dropped more than 15% between 2008 and 2009. Fast forward to 2021 and we experienced a housing market boom due to factors such as the stamp duty holiday.



“The property market is forever shifting, and unforeseen circumstances can impact the ‘mood’ and create challenges across the industry. However, we understand how to navigate through these challenges to ensure that we can help our sellers, landlords, buyers and tenants carefully move forward with their plans with confidence.

“While current reports suggest that the property market is showing signs of slowing, we haven’t been impacted. This is due to the exceptionally high demand for property in and around the Godalming area. Our stunning market town with its beautiful surrounding villages continues to attract buyers from across the UK and overseas. Even existing residents who opt to downsize love the area so much that they wouldn’t consider relocating anywhere else! There are also opportunities for first time buyers who will benefit most from the recently announced stamp duty relief.


Leading in sales and lettings

“While economic uncertainty may be slowing the market in many areas, our sales and lettings teams are still busy registering applicants, progressing sales and securing tenancies. According to Rightmove our Godalming sales team have secured more sales agreed and more new instructions over the last two months than any other local agent.* Our lettings team are also performing incredibly well, consistently securing more lets agreed and new instructions than our local competitors and this level of activity has been maintained, even in recent weeks.**

“Fellow Directors Ian Bond, Nick Lees and myself, along with our incredibly experienced team have the expertise to guide our clients, provide advice, and overcome any challenges. We have built a team of experts around us who are able to assist and advise on every stage of a property sale or let. If you are in any way unsure, we would recommend that you contact us to chat your plans through and arrange a market appraisal. You can then make a well-informed decision when it comes to marketing your property.”
