Colby Short, Co-Founder and CEO of GetAgent comments: “As experts in selling a home, we know how stressful it can be to find a buyer for your property. By sharing some of our own consumer data and the trends we’ve observed over the past year; we’re hoping we can provide house sellers with some valuable insight, and top tips, in what is often a very confusing and tense time.

“Living in a particular postcode can add thousands to your home’s value, whether that’s due to having prestigious schools (with catchment areas notoriously hard to get into) or even good transport links for commuters. Surprisingly, while you might assume that homes closer to the capital would fetch higher asking prices, our research actually shows that it’s countryside destinations that are topping the list of expensive postcodes.

“As we’ve seen a more hybrid way of working come into play over the past couple of years, it’s clear to see that there’s demand for homes in the countryside, and even remote areas of the UK, as people leave the city life for space further afield. 

“Despite the turbulent year of 2022 having had an adverse effect on many homeowner’s selling prices, it’s been really positive to see that sellers in many areas of the UK were able to achieve significantly more than their original asking prices - with some northern areas of the country achieving up to 120% of theirs. Similarly, our data showed that last year some house-sellers in the UK breezed through the selling process in an average of just 30 - 50 days, showing that it’s still very achievable to find the perfect buyer with minimal stress.”
