Top tips for buyers and sellers in 2022

Published: 26/01/2022

If you’re dreaming of buying or selling (or maybe even both) in 2022, the team of estate agents at Right Now Residential are ready to make that dream a reality.

The Dream Buy
  • Start with a search: get out on the street and do some groundwork, get a feel for the areas you may like to live in, try to imagine what it would be like to live there. Do the walk to your nearest station and see how long it takes you, or visit your potential local coffee shop, and see if it’s up to scratch. 
  • Know your market: take a wider look at the market, demand in the housing market is high at the moment, so our estate agents suggest you get prepared and get going as soon as possible, to avoid missing out on your ideal home.
  • Get ready to offer: If you have found your ideal home, it is time to put in an offer. Making an offer isn’t just about plucking a number out of thin air, you need to understand the buying process, and know what is required before you make the offer itself. If you love the home, don’t be afraid to pay the full asking price. Our estate agents often see people miss out on their dream home because they are too focussed on getting a ‘deal’. 

The Snappy Sale
  • Get on the market: If you’re already a homeowner, chances are you will need to think about selling before you start thinking about buying. It’s important to have your property on the market before you start looking for a new one. Far too often our estate agents see sellers lose their onward property because they have not yet started marketing their current one, meaning a more proceedable buyer has swooped in.
  • Get ready for viewings: Once you’ve decided to sell, it’s time to get your property in good shape. Tidy, declutter, paint where necessary, so that your home is ready to make a great first impression on viewers.


The 2022 housing market is looking positive, if you have any more questions about buying or selling, or you are ready to get started, our team of estate agents are on hand to help.
