If you’re thinking about selling your home but have been waiting to see what will happen in the housing market, Rightmove’s latest insights and our recent sales record, reveal there is no need to worry when it comes to selling your house at the moment! In fact, demand levels are a whopping 34% higher than this time last year when the UK was still experiencing a strong pre-lockdown market.

This is the greatest excess of demand over supply our team have seen for almost a decade, pushing up the average price of property coming to market in the South West by 1.5%.

There’s been so much interest, that properties really aren’t staying on the market for long. Over the last few weeks, a number of properties have gone “under offer” in a matter of days.

At Lodestone, we pride ourselves on working innovatively to market your property. We employ a team of marketing experts to ensure we do not operate a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach.

Instead, our marketing reflects the way we run the rest of our business:  we are proactive and treat every property individually.  We identify the most suitable target market for your house, and then tailor a creative strategy to fit.

We now have just over 3000 social media followers across our social media network making us the most-followed Independent Estate Agency in Somerset & Dorset. This means we are able to talk to engaged and interested buyers directly. Over the last 3 months since Christmas, we have reached over 500,000 people online.

Our website sees an average of 4,000 unique visitors a week with users spending an average of 4+ minutes browsing our featured properties and original editorial written about the industry, community and the homes we sell.
