Autumn’s All Go
With the summer now firmly behind us, the market is active once again, and we actually find that we currently have far more buyers than we do stock but predict that there will be a run of properties coming onto the market in the run up to Christmas especially with the Stamp Duty deadline looming. Those who enter the market ahead of this rush are likely to be the winners, as they will be competing with old stock.
New-to-market properties tend to shine over old stock that might have been on the market since the spring. The first question buyers ask is, “how long has it been on the market?” If nobody else wanted to buy it – why should they? Any agent will tell you that a property is most likely to sell within the first two to three weeks of marketing. That’s when buyers are excited about your property, often leading to a offers over the asking price as buyers compete for your property.
So if a move is on the cards, we urge you to consider bringing it forward if at all possible. You can always extend your completion date if need be. But the key in this market is to secure a buyer sooner rather than later.
We would be happy to create a Marketing Plan that really works for you – without obligation – quickly, efficiently and with great care and courtesy so you can see how your sale could be, in advance.
