Despite a fresh lockdown at the start of the year, this does not seem to have dampened the hunger for moving in the slightest.
The market in and around Peterhead continues to push on with plenty buyers out there, many hoping to buy before the LBTT holiday finishes at the end of March.
There was a slight slowdown of properties coming to the market before Christmas which is what would be expected at that time of year although there were signs that more properties were beginning to filter through and we’d expect to see more of this in early January.
Of the new ones, as always, the most popular area of the market is ex local authority 2 and 3 beds ranging from around £100,000 to £120,000 closely followed by properties up to around £200,000 to £250,000. If these types of property are modern and in move in condition, they sell quickly and this is what we have the most demand for. Some properties which have been on the market for a while are also selling especially where sellers are being more realistic with their asking price. Town centre flats and higher priced properties still remain the most challenging market, but again, if the price is right, they will sell.
First time buyers are still prevalent and we’d expect these to increase when the various Government schemes are all running again.
There are great mortgage deals out there and these change regularly so the earlier you seek advice, the better.
With the vaccine rolling out and positive cases now decreasing we expect this will give sellers and buyers much more confidence and this should become clearer as we move through the early part of 2021.
Any leased properties coming to the market in Peterhead generally tend to lease very quickly due to a high demand and not enough properties available for prospective tenants.
Well-presented modern properties move best and command fair prices. These are the properties that are also more liable to retain the tenants.
The biggest challenge is getting new properties on the market and we would expect the demand for leased properties to continue as there are definitely tenants out there.
There are a quite a number of sale properties around town and this might be a great time for an investor to consider a buy to let property as there is certainly a demand for these. For first time landlords it can be a major decision but with Aberdein Considine’s rental guarantee scheme this can provide a great deal of reassurance and comfort.
We can give advice to anyone considering becoming a landlord through our team of accredited staff.
With some hope that restrictions might ease by Easter this could be a good time to explore the market whether a tenant or landlord.
