Despite relatively high stock levels, the 2017 sales market has started strong with our first sale agreed £30,000 over the asking price. Other sales have been at asking price and only a few agreed just below, resulting in a 99.1% of our asking prices achieved so far this year. Confidence seems to be growing day by day, with many buyers not wanting to put their lives on hold for Brexit.
We had a busy start to the year in lettings, followed by a slightly cooler period as we head toward spring. Stock levels are still relatively low so savvy applicants are still making decisions quickly in order to make sure they find a property that ticks most of their requirements.
