Whilst the country remains under lockdown, the property market continues to exhibit high levels of activity and demand, making this a great time to put your home moving plans into action. Since the start of the pandemic UK homeowners have completed DIY projects and home improvements at a rate we've never seen before, and that boredom-busting work could unknowingly have led to a significant increase in the property's market value. In fact, according to Rightmove, the average price of property coming to market increased by 0.5% (+£1,522) this month, and visits to the site are up 45% compared to February 2020 with high demand outstripping supply. In short, buyers are desperately searching for their next home and there's just not enough to go around... which is great news for all the sellers out there.
