Quealy & Co have discovered that properties continue to go under offer more quickly than pre-pandemic. However the time taken to complete on a property sale has risen, with conveyancing delays remaining a significant issue.
In 2019 a survey of home movers found 55% of sales completed within 3 months. This fell to 45% in 2021. Early indications from the 2022 survey suggest that the proportion has continued to drop.
Managing expectations is crucial. For most buyers the process takes much longer than they expect. 86% of respondents to the 2021 survey expected to complete their move within 3 months.
