Local Sales and Rentals Market – May

The first of the barbecues have come out, we’ve had the first few of our precious bank holidays and we are heading straight towards summer. The housing market locally is picking up nicely as it usually does in this quarter. Propertywire reported the first three months of year saw an increased level of growth and, being experienced property agents in the area, we can see prices steadily growing. Asking prices are being achieved as people are prepared to pay a little more for a great property in the right location.

Here at Tortoise HQ we have expanded our team to help deal with demand of enquiries and sales. If you take a look at our website you’ll see some impressive sales stats. We encourage our buyers and sellers to have their ducks in a row and we help them to do that by offering a ‘one stop shop’ of mortgage advice, insightful market knowledge and property valuations and our effective ‘active’ marketing. This package forms the basis of our 12 week plan and is a proven formula.

Those impressive stats include a family home that became available 07/04/17 and was sold STC 29/04/17. This property received EIGHT accompanied viewings which received an accepted offer after THREE weeks and received an offer of 105% of asking price, resulting in the sale of the property. This property received 3,160 views on Rightmove.co.uk. We produced 865 pageviews on Zoopla.co.uk. Our Facebook campaign reached 3,904 people over two days.




Another example of how our active marketing works happened here: Available 31/03/17 and Sold STC 14/04/17. This property received FOUR accompanied viewings which received an accepted offer after only TWO weeks and received an offer of 101% of asking price, resulting in the sale of the property.  This property received 1,182 views on Rightmove.co.uk.

So, if you are considering selling your home, give one of our relationship managers a call or take advantage of our free valuation tool. You could be in the property of your dreams in no time at all if you let us take care of the marketing for you.
