After a reasonably busy summer period, the third quarter of the year saw demand and broader activity continue to rise.
The best selling properties tend to be two to three bed properties in the region of the £100,000 to £120,000 level, with modern, well presented homes up to around the £180,000 to £190,000 mark also proving very popular.
Higher priced properties can prove a little stickier, but as prices appear to be seeing an increase nearer the City, this might bring more interest from buyers seeking a large property, but not wishing to pay city prices.
The flat market, particularly around the town centre, remains sluggish, but new builds continue to be popular, particularly with younger buyers.
The concerns sellers and buyers may have about Brexit does not at the moment seem to be having a significant impact but it is difficult to predict the reaction to any potential outcome of negotiations. If the market remains buoyant, we can anticipate a good end to the year with continued activity in the market.
There are still great deals available on mortgages so now is the time to get your mortgage advice and find yourself a bargain whether it is as first time purchase, next steps up the property ladder or downsizing. There is certainly something out there for everyone.
The lettings market in Peterhead continued to turn around well in the third quarter with most properties coming to the market leasing out quickly.
Both houses and flats, furnished or unfurnished are leasing. The year started well, with a bit of a dip for a short period, but it has certainly picked up again. Demand is growing and we are keen for new landlords as there are still plenty of tenants out there looking for property to lease.
Tenants are certainly more discerning, and well presented, modern properties will lease out more quickly and more liable to retain tenants.
The market remains robust, but as we move through the summer months and into the autumn, we will possibly begin to see what effect, if any, the Brexit situation will have on the market.
