Whilst it is unlikely to come as a complete surprise that the demand for properties in the Hartley Wintney area has increased following yet further media comment as to what a attractive village in which it is to live, the harsh reality of trying to buy a property has caught a few potential buyers unaware in recent weeks.
Irrespective of either size or value, the majority of properties that we have been instructed to promote for sale have not only enjoyed considerable interest, but they have also had multiple offers many of which are in excess of the asking price and this has led to many buyers being disappointed because whilst they have made offers in good faith, their inability to demonstrate that they are able to proceed to an early exchange of contracts has resulted in the sellers declining their offer.
With this in mind, we are strongly advising buyers and sellers that they not only ensure that their finances are arranged, but if they are dependent on selling their existing property, then they really do need to have secured a buyer if they are to compete with what is an increasing number of ‘hot’ buyers looking to move to this area.
If you would like advice or a property valuation please contact me on 01252 844015 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
