After a busy first quarter of the year, the market saw a slightly quieter period during April to June.
Despite a slower period than the start of the year, there are still new properties coming to the market and offers coming in for both new properties as well as older ones that have been on the market for longer.
Locally, the trend is still for new build, ready to move into properties, with the price bracket £95,000 to £115,000 closely followed by £200,000 to £250,000.
Ultimately, if the pricing is realistic, sales have been extremely healthy across the board, with family homes still in great demand.
The only area which is a little slower to move remains lower priced flats around town but again those which are modern and well-presented are attracting most interest and selling well.
There is definitely a lively feel to the market and as we head into summer the outlook is positive.
With a huge number of mortgage deals around and interest rates remaining low, this is an ideal time to think about getting on the housing ladder for the first time or exploring the chance to move to a larger property.
With lockdown restrictions easing significantly, the expectation is that the economy will start to grow which could well see a busy summer and autumn housing market.
The leasing market continues to be buoyant in the local area after a busy first three months of the year.
Whilst properties in the best condition are attracting most interest, demand for all types of properties is high and will lease out quickly at the right price.
With the increase in home working, larger, family sized homes are very popular, especially those with room for an office as well as a garden.
As ever, those homes which are modern and presented well are likely to retain tenants longer term and command higher rents, but, in short, there is a significant shortage of all types of rental properties on the market.
Given that demand is outstripping supply at the moment, we are actively looking for landlords to place their properties on the market.
With lockdown restrictions easing and the economy expected to grow, demand for rental properties seems likely to increase.
If you are looking to become a landlord this could be a good time to explore the market or take some professional advice on the first steps.
