Property Update: Demand The Best

Demand for houses in the area is the best it has been at this time of year for a long time. So says Stephen Clarke valuer for Kirkland & Lane Solicitors & Estate Agents. So much so, that now could be one of the most advantageous times of the year to market your home.

"At the moment there is unquestionably unsatisfied demand in the market," said Stephen. "We are very busy with viewings and agreeing sales more quickly than would usually be the case at this time of year.

"We are being contacted by buyers desperate to find their new home having sold theirs but currently with little or no choice in the market. Consequently I would strongly encourage home owners looking at selling this year to come to the market now as they would undoubtedly increase the chances of achieving a sale and at the best price rather than waiting until later in the year at times when supply normally increases."

Stephen highlighted the situation by confirming that: "We have agreed a sale this week on a property that wasn't even on the market... we were contacted by buyers beginning to despair of finding a new home.

"Due to the quick thinking and positive approach of our sales team we were able to identify a house that we had been to appraise that looked as though it could be ideal for the clients. We got agreement between the parties and a viewing was arranged, they loved the house and following negotiations a sale was agreed to the great satisfaction of both seller and buyer alike."

We would be delighted to provide the same professional, high quality and individually tailored approach to all those considering selling their home and would once again encourage them to think of asking us out to appraise their property now and capitalise on the current unmatched demand.
