So why are buyers queuing up to see properties in East and West Molesey? Truthfuly, no-one really knows as there are many factors to consider; the general election, mortgage rates, budget cuts and so on.
Property markets have "boomed" after general elections in the past, and there have been a long list of additional factors that prevented this from happeneing earlier in the year. Our opinion is that buyers that would have made their purchase in the summer delayed their move, causing a bottleneck effect as they begin to start up their search in the East and West Molesey areas for the final quarter of the year.
Does this mean that the winter period will be unusually busy as well? Only time will tell. All we have to go by is that every season this year has acted out of character from what we are used to, our bet is on a strong market in Molesey right up until Christmas, but of course this is our totally bias opinion!
If you are planning a move, our property valuations and market appraisals are offered free of charge. Why not find out the value of your home so that you can make an informed decision on whether or not now is the right time to move!

The current property drought is nationwide, with the average price of a property sold subject to contract in the UK in September at £221,797. On top of that, the supply of properties for sale is 14.3% down compared to 12 months prior, and 3.1% from August this year.
New instructions are also down 18.5% in London, where the average house price last month was £521,383.
Buyer activity is being magnified, with new buyer registrations up 8.4% annually, in particular the number of new first-time buyer registrations is up 7.4% with the current low mortgage rates.
Already we have seen a spike in new buyer registrations with many homes going under offer with the first seven days of marketing, and on average we are acheiving 98% of asking prices. A sure sign that there are more buyers per property.
The affect this has had on the Molesey property market is great news for those planning to sell in the near future. In the past 6 months property prices in East and West Molesey have increased by £15,583 on avg (2.86%), with 117 transactions in the KT8 postcode area in the same time period.
For the first 6 months of 2015 there were 164 transactions which shows a drop in completed sales of around 28%. It is no wonder then that as the amount of new buyers searching for a home increases, and new instructions coming to market dropping, property prices have increased significantly.
This bubble will burst when mortgage rates rise and there are numerous reports that suggest this will happen in the not too distant future, when this happens we anticipate buyer activity will decrease and property values will level off temporairily. We therefor urge anyone considering selling to take advantage of the current market and to bring any plans to sell forward where possible.

Figures from August show UK mortgage borrowing increased by the largest amount since the economic crash and should be taken as another sign that the housing market is heating up.
According to the Financial Times mortgage lending rose £3.4bn. The amount of new mortgage approvals for house purchases have reached an 18-month high of 71,000, according to figures released last Tuesday by the Bank of England.
Approvals for mortgaging also rose in August from the previous month as home owners sought to lock in current low interest rates deals.
Expert analysts are constantly warning that a shortage of supply on the market has been driving up values, especially in the London and Greater London Area.
With this in mind, if you are thinking of selling now is the perfect time to come to market before the Christmas market hits and buyers slow down. If you are about to come to market or already selling and you are without a buyer, call us to find out more about these findings and how our results back this information.

It is vital you instruct an agent who understands what lies ahead and has the necessary measures in place to see you through to the finish line. With the increase in sales activity the legal process is not likely to be in a position to keep up. With the land registry preparing to take over the property search process, local authorities are refusing to invest in the technology and resources required to improve the current system and as staff are leaving not a lot seems to be going ahead in terms of replacing them.
It is because of this that our team at Newton Huxley deal with recommended and approved solicitors, take extra care when agreeing sales, and stay on top of the progression as this is the most vital part of the process that needs an agent to deliver and work effectively.
The average national fall through rate for 2015 is reported to be as high as 27.5% to date, to find out more about how we operate differently from other agents, achieving a fall through rate of just 12.5%, please contact us on 0208 396 6717 or click this link to go to our valuation page and book your appointment today.
At the start of 2015 there was a lot of speculation as to how the election would effect the property market. Following our launch in January we noticed that the market was incredibly price sensitive with pre election jitters.
As we gained more momentum and built up the number of properties we were marketing we noticed that many of the properties coming to us that had been unsuccessful with other estate agents were selling, and quickly. One example of which was a property in East Molesey that had been marketed for around 4 months by two established local firms prior to coming on with us.
In 4 days we were able to source a buyer and an askng price offer. Since then (March) the market has gone from strength to strength with confidence from buyers and sellers at high levels.
We are extremely pleased to report that the post election market is incredibly buoyant and we are achieving record results on a number of properties, with an average 98% of asking price achieved throughout 2015!
