Whilst 2021 has had its fair share of ups and downs, surprises and stresses for many people on the housing market – the important thing to remember is that it has been an amazing year for people making the move and securing their keys to their forever home.
North West Takes the Podium
The Northwest has seen a huge surge in demand in 2021 for people looking to buy property in Stockport, with the people looking at how to sell a house struggling to stay ahead of that demand.
As a great mixture of rural and city accessible landscapes, it became the epicentre of house hunting activity from people as far as Birmingham and London seeking second homes or full countryside moves. It has also been a prime area for people seeking advice on renting a house in the area, making it one of the most sought after areas in the county.
As the mortgage situation and the stamp duty holiday played their hands in increasing interest in housing, first time buyers came in the hundreds to the area to stake their claim on properties for the first time.
Buyers Getting Set to Move
With the end of the festive season mere weeks away, many people who have been preparing to move out of their properties into a new home in the new year creates an influx of fresh properties coming to the market.
January seems set to continue the housing demand and, although no one can predict what 2022 will have in store for the state of housing, it is sure to see many people coming into the scene to get a place better suited to their needs – even if Omicron decides to make our lives a little difficult, to begin with.
Independent’s Are Still the Best
Over the past year, it has been hard for many national estate agencies to keep track of the growing desire by many to purchase or sell their homes in a quick fashion. This has resulted in independent estate agents Stockport seeing their services more approachable to those wanting a more satisfactory result.
With a more personable approach and existing relationships and reputations with many businesses and individuals around the localised area, the team at Joules have enjoyed a stellar year of satisfying customers with a more dedicated and personalised service.
This we look forward to continuing as the new year starts to show its true colours, and whatever challenges are faced within the housing market moving forward, they will be faced together. All of our team at Joules estate agents Stockport wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year for 2021,
