The average sale takes 97 days from being listed to being marked as SSTC.

Analysis though indicates 11% of all property listed for sale is being classed as sold subject to contract in just two weeks of the sales process.

London lags behind but property still moves fast

It is no surprise that London is the slowest of the market, with only 7% of homes selling in the opening two weeks. Of course, this is still a lot of property selling fast, and when you consider the challenges of the London housing market, this is still a remarkable feat.

Other locations where homes are selling notably fast include:

  • Scotland, were 18% of listed homes sell within 14 days
  • South West of England, where 13% of property sells within 14 days
  • The East of England, Wales and the West Midlands sees 12% of homes sell in just 14 days

The demand means vendors can connect with buyers in a short period of time, but it still helps to present your home in the most appropriate manner. This is something we can assist you with, and if you are looking for guidance, we are more than happy to help you with this aspect.

Colby Short is the co-founder and CEO of GetAgent.co.uk, and he said: “Since interest rates have begun to climb, the nation’s property prophets have been out in force to once again call the demise of the UK property market. However, we’re simply not seeing this on the ground and while there has certainly been a return to normality where mortgage approval levels and the rate of house price growth is concerned, buyer demand remains extremely high and property values are yet to show any signs of decline. In fact, the balance between supply and demand is so out of kilter that homes are selling subject to contract at pace and in many areas, with one in five doing so within just two weeks in some cases. Of course, this doesn’t make the protracted process between accepting an offer and completing on a sale any quicker, but it does cut a considerable amount of time from the overall selling timeline.”
