On Monday of this week, lockdown restrictions eased, the sun came out, the beer gardens were packed, and incoming calls reduced! On Tuesday, activity returned to normal and remained consistent throughout the remainder of the week 😊
Although the majority of homes are selling quickly, we are finding, via software that we use, that many homes have remained unsold for a good number of weeks. One example was a property in Calder Drive. We initially carried out a sales valuation in October 2020. The vendor decided to instruct another estate agent that same month. We kept in touch because they wanted to buy locally, and on the 12th of April, the vendor, by now fed up due to the lack of interest, instructed us to market their home. Two days later, we received an acceptable offer, and they are now buying a property from us as well.
If you are thinking of selling, please consider the service you will receive. There is far more to selling a property than the agents recommended asking price and their sales fee. We urgently need more homes to sell so, please call us on 0121 296 1400 or scan our QR code to see what the market is like for your home.
