Buying and Selling Property in Worthing

Located on the West Sussex coast, Worthing is an attractive seaside town with a growing property market. Just 10 miles west of Brighton, Worthing offers a more affordable alternative while still providing easy access to the city. Here’s an overview of the local housing market:

Property Types

Worthing has a diverse mix of property styles, from Victorian and Edwardian terraces to modern townhouses and flats. Semi-detached 1930s homes are also very common across the inland residential areas.

Period cottages and character conversions can be found in the town centre, while areas like Goring and Ferring have larger detached homes with views over the English Channel.

New builds, including apartment blocks and housing developments, continue to be added around Worthing to meet growing demand.

Buying in Worthing

Worthing attracts a range of buyer types, including first-time buyers looking for an affordable coastal area, growing families seeking more space, and downsizers from nearby regions.

With more buyers than sellers, the Worthing market moves quickly. Obtaining a mortgage agreed in principle beforehand is essential for serious buyers to act fast on new listings.

Using a local buyer’s agent can provide a significant advantage in locating suitable properties before they hit the wider market.

Selling in Worthing

While not as fast-paced as Brighton, homes priced correctly tend to sell briskly in Worthing as long as they are well-marketed.

Working with an established local estate agent who can leverage their networks and listing platforms is highly advisable for vendors. Realistic pricing is key in the Worthing market – over-valuation will massively reduce interest.

Homes requiring little or no work are most desirable for the many buyers looking to move in quickly. However, properties requiring modernisation can still sell well if priced accordingly.

Callaways have served us for nearly 10 years. They helped us prepare a property for rent, fully managed the rental property and have just sold the property for us. Throughout that time we have found them to be professional, courteous and proactive. They provided advice when required and arranged everything that needed to be done. Our experience with all Callaways staff has been positive but for many years now most of our interactions have been with Jacqui on the lettings side and James on the sales. Both seem so suited to their roles and are just the sort of people you want to look after or sell your property. We had no previous experience of letting agents but we know in Jacqui and Callaways, very good ones do exist. For the sale, James showed excellent communications. He was instrumental in keeping everyone talking, chasing progress and getting it done. Thank you all.

Ten years ago I bought a flat through Callaways. I found tenants through Callaways. I have just sold that flat with Callaways. Every step of the way they have been professional , given spot on advice & taken so much of the hassle out of it. James Duffy has been excellent. I had a difficult sale due to freeholder issues & his knowledge & efficiency have made all the difference. I highly recommend this agent.

My wife and I have been clients of Callaways for over a decade as both tenants and subsequently buyers of the home we rented through them. Through this long period of engagement, every experience we have had with them was of the highest standard. Whilst renting, the lettings team (led by the lovely and charismatic Jax) were always friendly, personable and responsive. They maintained a delicate balance between acting on behalf of the landlord, whilst also empathising with our situation as tenants. When the opportunity arose to purchase the home we rented, we could not have asked for a better agent than Heather. She skilfully managed a complicated situation, managing not just the process but also the emotions of all involved. It's a pleasure to be able to say that, in our experience, Callaways delivered real value to all parties. Not all estate agents are created equal, and Callaways showed how it should be done! I cannot recommend them highly enough.

Buying a beach hut through Callaways was a pleasure, with Heather always willing to share her wisdom and advice. Thanks for making the process fun, as well as the end result.

We have been using Callaways Lettings Service for many years and have received a consistantly good service from their dedicated staff. We have been particularly impressed with their knowledge and expertise of the lettings business and their ability to work closely with the Building Management Teams. This has resulted in good relations with Landlords and the speedy resolution of maintenance and tenant issues.
I can honestly say that Heather has been the most patient & helpful agent EVER. She has kept me up to date regularly with progress. It is a great agency to buy a beach hut as her knowledge is incredible having sold them on a regular basis for many years. Highly recommended.
