According to The Advisory, the average time to sell a property, from first day of marketing to completion, is between 16 and 25 weeks. In a hot market, it can take on average 16 weeks and a cold market, 25 weeks.

Mortgages are taking longer to secure as lenders have a back log from lockdown and are prioritising existing customers. Therefore, it may take vendors longer to move through the house buying process than normal.
