The first quarter of 2021 has seen a very busy market, with high levels of activity, a healthy level of properties coming up for sale, and plenty buyers looking.
There have been good offers coming in, especially properties that are ready to move into.
As ever ex local authority properties around the £95000 to £115,000 sell well, closely followed by the £200,000 to £250,000 range.
There has also been movement on older properties which have been taking their time to sell, especially if buyers are more realistic on their pricing and there is interest in larger houses too.
As always, there are a wide range of mortgage deals available, and these change regularly so the earlier you seek advice, the better. In addition the recent launch of the 95% mortgage scheme by the Chancellor has increased interest even further.
New technologies, such as Aberdein Considine’s 3D virtual tours, are also proving extremely popular with both buyers and sellers.
With the vaccine rolling out and positive cases now decreasing we expect this will give sellers and buyers even more confidence and we firmly anticipate the market to remain busy over the coming months, especially with Spring almost upon us.
The rental market in Peterhead and the surrounding area has been busy during the first three months of the year, with most properties being snapped up quickly after coming to the market.
Well-presented properties continue to command most interest and attractive rents, and are certainly more likely to retain their tenants.
The biggest challenge is getting new properties on the market and we expect the demand for leased properties to continue as there are definitely tenants out there.
There are a lot 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.
It’s always advisable to take professional advice in the first instance, but if you are considering becoming a landlord now could be as good a time as any. There is plenty of help available, and with demand strong and incentives such as Aberdein Considine’s landlord guarantee scheme, it might well worth beginning to explore the market.
