It’s been a record-breaking start to the new year for Green & Co, in more ways than one.
In January our Sutton Coldfield branch helped one vendor to sell their home in record time, counting just seven working days between the offer being accepted and the new owner moving in to a property on Carhampton Road.
And the speedy sale was one of an impressive 289 sales (subject to contract) achieved in January and February across Green & Co’s seven residential sales offices.
The property at Carhampton Road shows just what can be done with the right team behind it. We secured a sale, at £2,500 above the asking price, worked closely with both solicitors and handed the keys over with 11 days – seven working days in total.
Jacquie Harvey from our Sutton Coldfield branch said it was the quickest completion she's ever worked on and we believe it’s the quickest ever in Green & Co’s 23 years of selling local homes. It just goes to show that in the right circumstances, with the right estate agent of course, it doesn’t have to take months to move home.
We also enjoyed our best ever January with a record 150 sales thanks to the impact of stamp duty reforms late last year, and have followed it up with another strong month in February.
The start of the new year has always traditionally been a good time to sell a home but this year has been especially strong, boosted by the stamp duty reform which seems to have had a positive effect on the housing market across the UK.
Good quality homes in the local area are achieving excellent prices and with no shortage of buyers, it’s been a buoyant start to 2015. Our expert sales teams have been working hard and 289 is a fantastic number of sales to have achieved already so early in the year - but we won’t stop there!
