Are you thinking of moving this year?
Have you thought about how long it will take from the date your sale is agreed to when you have the keys to your new home in your hand?
According to a recent article from Rightmove the average time taken in 2022 from the date a sale is agreed to completion is 150 days. That’s an increase of 50 days on 2019 data.

At Fraser Wood we are finding that completions are taking a little longer, but with good solicitors working for you and our team keeping you updated every step of the way, we hope to keep completion well below the average.
Our advice to first time buyers is speak to a mortgage adviser first and find out how much you can borrow. We can put you in touch with an adviser from Meridian Mortgages who will look at the whole market and advise you of the best deal.
If you are looking to move to a larger home, relocate or downsize, speak to us about a free valuation and read our blog about getting your home ready for sale here https://bit.ly/3nxBrfa
