It's hard to believe that today is the first day of February! It only seems 5 minutes ago that we were entertaining our friends and contacts at our Christmas reception here in the office! The market has actually been pretty good since the turn of the year, especially for Ria in the Lettings Department, who seem to be doing some excellent business. In the Sales Department, Nigel and Niki have a few retained clients, who are actively looking to find and the one frustration is the lack of stock. It's clear that if they get the properties at the moment, they can sell them. If you are contemplating a move this year, or have simply outgrown your existing home (just like me!) it might be that now is the best time, with an abundance of buyers looking to move quickly and a shortage of homes to move to. Similarly, we have the investors who are practically queuing up to buy ahead of the April 1st increase in second home tax. Call us now for a free market appraisal, whether it's for sales or rentals.
