We are proud to offer clients the support of some of the north-east’s most experienced property professionals from our estate agency and lettings office in Westhill. We also offer our full range of legal and independent financial services from the site.
Activity levels in the Westhill and Kingswells areas has remained at a reasonable level over the last few months and we have achieved some excellent sales at prices close or at valuation figures and within a short time frame.
Spacious family homes which offer good value for money and are presented to a high standard are still being favoured due to buyers having a large choice of property to pick from and opting for properties which are ready to move into. We are also finding that rural/semi rural properties which offer unique features or are in desirable locations are attracting interest particularly if there is land included within the sale.
We have also seen encouraging results recently in the first time buyer and investor market with improvements in volume of sales of apartments within modern developments.
Our applicants and buyers in general are continuing to keep their options open in terms of considered areas which we are attributing to the near completion of the AWPR which will offer easier access North and South of the city.
With the volume of new properties coming on to the market decreasing, we anticipate that the following months will see interest in properties which have been on the market for some time increase. At this time of year many potential sellers plan to wait until the new year to market their properties and as such we expect a further increase in activity levels for both buying and selling at the start of 2019.
The rental market locally has remained steady over the last few months and family homes presented in good order are securing tenancies quickly.
Increasingly we are receiving numerous applications and achieving full asking prices. This is encouraging as it is demonstrating that there has been an increase in the number of families relocating to the area which we attribute to an increase in confidence in the local economy and employment opportunities.
We are noting that many properties securing tenancies at the moment are doing so for rental prices higher than achieved last year. Tenants are acknowledging that in order to secure a property quickly without competing with other applicants, they need to offer full asking price without conditions.
We expect that this trend will continue into the new year and would hope to see new landlords marketing their properties for lease to satisfy the demand.
