As we move from Spring into the Summer months the market has remained steady, with a good range of properties coming to the market, together with a slight increase in sales.
It has certainly been busy over the last few months, and whilst there can be a slight dip over the summer holidays but we are still seeing plenty new properties coming on the market.
Properties are selling, especially those which are in tip top and ready to move into condition. It is worthwhile giving your property an MOT before coming to the market, and some basic tweaks can make the difference to get an early buyer.
New properties coming to the market range from lower value flats to higher end properties. There are certainly exceptions to the rule but overall the bestselling properties tend to be the two to three bed homes around the £100,000 to £120,000 mark, with well finished, modern houses up to around £180,000 also selling well.
There are plenty of flats available, but these can be harder to sell as there are fewer buyers, and this also applies to more expensive, larger properties. New builds remain a strong feature, with younger buyers particularly keen to buy.
Given the uncertainty around Brexit, it is difficult to predict what the market will look like or how it will react, but there is some optimism that activity both for sales and purchases will continue for the time being.
With great mortgage deals available along with an excellent range of properties it’s a good time to explore the local market.
The lettings market is still enjoying a reasonably healthy level of activity going into the second quarter of the year, with a good demand for both flats and houses, furnished and unfurnished.
We saw a fairly busy start to the year, and whilst it has quietened down a little, a good range of properties to lease are continuing to come to the market. Rental prices have remained realistic which has definitely helped the local market to maintain buoyancy, but it remains the case the all properties should be kept to a high standard.
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.
