Are homeowners looking to sell their home quickly?

With respect to movement in the housing market, a new study by the House Buyer Bureau indicates the number of homes coming to the market is rising. In comparison with six months ago, there is 16% more homes coming to the market.

Chris Hodgkinson, Managing Director of House Buyer Bureau, commented: “We’ve seen numerous indicators that the market is running low on steam but this is yet to deter the nation’s home sellers, who have continued to flood the market to an even greater extent than six months ago when the pandemic property market boom was still in full swing. Of course, many are doing so in hopes of securing a buyer before the current cool in the rate of house price growth materialises into an actual decline. However, we’ve already seen the level of buyers entering the market start to dwindle as a result of increasing mortgage costs and so they may well find it tougher than expected to secure an offer on their home.”

Chris also said; “So not only are we seeing more homes listed for sale, but there’s also less buyers looking to purchase and when you consider these two factors together, the likelihood is that this surplus for sale stock will actually help accelerate a drop in house prices.”
