August is usually a time where people are relaxing by the pool and enjoying their summer holidays, but the property market never stops and we are super busy here at Redbrik.
In fact, we are on course to have a record breaking August in terms of property sales and viewings.
In the first ten days of this month we have sold 37 properties STC and lettings continue to go from strength to strength.
At Redbrik we continue to market properties in the right way, price accurately and appropriately, as well as innovating and advising buyers to the significant advantages to buying in the current market.
Interest rates are at a record low and first time buyers have returned on mass to the market and there are a vast number of cash buyers looking at investment opportunities as the returns they are getting in savings and investment accounts are limited.
Sadly, we come across too many agents pushing prices beyond realistic values as they battle to win instructions and as such there are properties that are on the market for too much money and need reducing. ‘Online only’ and some estate agents that charge significant upfront fees, who only seem concerned with ‘winning listings’ are often giving unrealistic valuations to ‘win’ business. This leads to headlines in the media stating that the ‘North of England is worst hit by house price fall.’ This is not the case.
We want our vendors and perspective buyers to have confidence in the property market and be assured that you are able achieve the right price for your property.
If you take a look on our Facebook and Twitter feeds you will regularly see a host of our properties which have been sold STC.
It really is a great time to be in the property market, whether you are a first time buyer taking advance of low interest rates and good mortgage options or are selling your property and wanting to get the best possible price.
For any advice or to book a property valuation, contact one of the Redbrik team – we are always on hand and happy to help.
