UK property price growth slowed marginally last month as the stamp duty holiday came to a near end, but a drop in the number of homes being put up for sale looks set to keep driving up prices, according to the latest Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) survey.   Nationally there were 13 new buyers for every property listed in the UK in September. At Green & Company, we currently have over 9000 potential buyers registered with us. Despite receiving some tremendous new instructions over the last few weeks, we still can't keep up with buyer demand. One problem is potential sellers can't see anything online to buy, so they are reluctant to market their home. We understand this problem which is why we offer a Soft Launch and an Off the Market property search service. These services allow sellers to sell on a low profile, low exposure basis and enables them to look for a new home that hasn't even been advertised yet. Please click on the links below to find out more information or call us on 0121 296 1400.   Soft Launch - https://www.green-property.com/page/soft-launch.html   Off the Market - https://www.green-property.com/page/off-the-market.html     Why sell your property with us?   Over 9000 registered buyers looking to buy locally Exposure to our network of 7 local offices 4.5 customer service rating based on independent customer reviews 28 expert qualified locally based staff sourcing the best buyers Switched on marketing and a brand that has been serving the area for nearly 30 years ...

A big round of applause for Jacquie, Jonathan, Tara and Shakila.   One of our customers was very satisfied with the excellent service Green and Company provide.   “I am writing to let you know how pleased I have been with the service I have received from Greens, Sutton Coldfield regarding the sale of my house, 79 Park Road, B73 6BT.    I was recommended to use them by my neighbour who couldn’t speak highly enough of them with the sale of his property the year before.  Since placing my house on the market last November, Jacquie and her team have been continuously professional and helpful and have made the whole process as stress free as possible, right up to completion last week.  Please convey my thanks to Jacquie, Jonathan, Tara, (and Shakila - Mere Green branch) – they have all been brilliant.   In this day and age, it is unusual to experience such a high level of service and I shall have no hesitation in recommending Greens in the future.  (I only wish you had a branch in Oxford to where I am relocating!)   Yours faithfully Helen Murphy”...

Week four was the final week to complete on a property before the stamp duty holiday ended. Thankfully, the vast majority of our clients did manage to complete, and we hope that now that the stamp duty holidays have ended, we will see a return to a more stable and consistent level of completion.   For the month, we registered 1018 new potential buyers, but instructions remain low compared to demand. Many homes continue to sell quickly, and there is a shortage of properties for sale.   We have great options from simply instructing us on a no-sale no-charge basis, our low profile "Soft Launch" option, and our "Off the Market" service, which allows you to view property even though they are not "actively" marketed.

79 new offers and 192 new potential buyers registered this week. New instructions to the market were lower than usual, which will keep an upward pressure on property prices. Rightmove reported this week that within the West Midlands, the average property price increased by 0.6% this month, and the year-on-year change is 6.9%.   Are you looking to move in the New Year?   Now is the time to market your home.

Buyer activity remains strong, with 657 applicants registered so far this month. With just over a week remaining for August, activity levels are on course to exceed July's figures.

Demand for all types of houses, from terraced to detached, has more than doubled in the current housing market. A new report from Zoopla shows that family homes are most popular amongst buyers, with demand up 114 per cent compared to levels typically seen at this time of year between 2017 and 2019.   Locally prices have increased year on year, which is currently being fuelled by a severe shortage of new properties coming to the market.  Most owners would want to achieve the best price for their home; it goes without saying.   Even in this buoyant market we find ourselves in; your estate agent should still be doing their best to do that for you.   The bigger your marketplace, the more likely you are to get the best price for your home. Therefore, it is important to advertise your home with an agent that uses more of the property portals:   Many buyers and sellers tend to favour one of the two biggest portals: Rightmove and Zoopla, and once chosen tend to stick to that one, probably due to familiarisation and functions. So far, during 2021, telephone and email enquiries from those two portals have been 12765 (as of 28th July), of which 3627 (28%) have been from Zoopla.   When deciding which agent to choose, bear in mind that you could be missing out on a buyer if they are not covering the whole market.   If you are thinking of selling, please call us on 0121 296 1400 to discuss what we can do to not only help you sell your home but find a new one too....

Great weather, easing COVID restrictions, and the commencement of school holidays can only mean one thing - a quieter property market this week.   Compared to previous weeks, activity levels were reduced. We registered 156 new applicants, arranged 176 viewings and received 71 new offers. Despite a lower level of viewings, offers received were higher than last week. This suggests that many committed buyers are out there, and with a lack of available properties for sale, selling prices remain firm.   Are you thinking of selling but struggling to find somewhere to buy?

It was another busy week, with all property types receiving a great deal of interest. Due to the bank holiday and half-term requests to carry out sales valuations were low at the beginning of the week but picked up again with a large number booked on Friday in readiness for next week.   Completions continue to be frustratingly slow, but we still have a long month ahead of us before the first stamp duty deadline.   As ever we need more homes to sell due to exceptionally strong demand.
