  • Which types of home sell most often in Ealing?



    We think your ideal home says a lot about you. If the world were your oyster, would you go for something Victorian, Georgian, a duplex apartment, new build house, or maybe a farm? Given that we live in Ealing, obviously our choices are somewhat limited by reality, but what are the hottest types of property and what does this mean for sellers?

    The time it takes to sell your home depends on three principal things; price, condition and location. Price is the most important factor and where you set it will directly affect how long your home takes to sell. It is worth being aware of reasonably significant differences in average time-to-sell across the country so you can manage your expectations. For example, data released by Post Office Money showed that the average time on the market in Bristol is currently 61 days compared with 77 days in Leeds, 84 days in Brighton and 111 days in London.

    In Ealing, the most common type of property is a 4+ bed house. In fact, 43.5 per cent of all families in the area live in such a home. We see a lot of this kind of property come onto the market, but more compact homes are also in high demand, particularly in more central areas. One of the best things about our area is the broad variety of homebuyers all looking for their own perfect next home.

    We know the most common type of property in Ealing, but which kind of home changes hands most often? Unfortunately, the Land Registry does not tell us the bedroom count of homes that have sold, so we only know whether they were flats, terraces, semis or detached homes. As such, we can see that it is flats which transact most frequently.

    Buy-to-let landlords will want to pay extra attention to local demographics and the most sought-after property types. The most popular property types will rent faster than other ones because of demand, which means they will also command a higher rental premium. It is also worth understanding the factors which affect your market seasonally like graduates starting their first job.

    So we know that flats are sold most often in Ealing but most families live in a 4+ bed house. In reality, we have a vast cross-section of homebuyers always looking for the perfect next home. If you are looking for someone who understands the market to help ensure you get the optimum price when you come to sell, please get in touch with us by giving us a ring.
