We have enjoyed a very encouraging start to the year with a number of our offices experiencing an excess of demand over supply. We are consistently achieving offers between 96% – 100% of our asking prices with the market pendulum swinging back in favour of the seller. Despite the signs of growth the market remains sensitive and fragile making it all the more important to get accurate and up to date advice from your local property professionals.
As with previous election years we are predicting the market to slow down slightly as the May election draws near, with both buyers and sellers awaiting any change of government and subsequent house selling legislation.
If you are planning a move this year now is the right time to put your plans into place. We are close to launching our new interactive up to the minute website to fully enhance our clients properties, providing us with a quantum leap forward in web technology. We are therefore expecting and predicting exciting times ahead.
