What is the average time to find a buyer in Southwold Suffolk ?

We always understood that there were people queuing up to move to Southwold, in Suffolk. our property has been on the market for a month and we have had very little interest. How can we tell if this reflects the state of the market, or a problem with the Agent, we assumed that with the advent of sites like Zoopla and Rightmove that the agent now makes little difference ?

  • In all my time working in property I have only ever come across two reasons why houses didn't sell, the price or the agent. The problem you face is establishing which one is effecting you. Southwold is unquestionably one of those 'hotspots' where property should sell when it comes to the market. Have a look around at what else is on the market in your price range, i.e your competition and ask yourself which one you would buy and is best value. If you house is clearly the best option then its probably the agent. We generally arrange to meet out clients after 4 weeks if a house hasn't sold and discuss why, so I would recommend you sit down with your agent and do so. Although if they are decent they should be intiating this not you!

  • Have you seen any improvement yet as everyone is back from the holiadys and the market returning to normal. It is a very price sensitive market so do your own research of what is selling at what price. I did read an article recently which stated that east anglia house prices had been particularly effected in recent times. What we are no seeing is very regional changes, the reports on the news are national just to add to the confusion.
