Market Update

Now that we have passed the halfway mark in the year, the property market is well and truly in full swing with buyers and sellers very active in the current marketplace. Buyers have an eye for a good property, paying strong prices for the very best houses in the most desirable areas. This success in various geographical pockets of the market has caused the market to move along at a rapid pace during 2018.

We urge potential sellers to be realistic when pricing their property if they wish to obtain a sale before Christmas. The strong property market has caused some estate agents and sellers to over estimate the likely sale price, causing many vendors to become disappointed with their properties languishing on the market at an otherwise busy time. It is vital you seek an expert opinion when pricing your property in order not to ‘over price’ but also to make sure you are obtaining the very best sale price, particularly if you live in a desirable location, the experts at Benton’s can help you achieve this.
