Agents have a real air of optimism in the market
Lawson West estate agents
As we approach a busy time in the market, all agents look forward to this period of the year.
At Lawson West Estate Agents, we have seen a continued rise in agreed sales over the past few months and we are ready for a busy end to 2012.
We have seen a rise in qualified and financially ready purchasers and have been excited to see a varied range of properties coming to the market to cater for all buyers' requirements.
The market has shown that values are levelling and that confidence in selling is now higher than in previous years.
Vendors are becoming more aware of the benefit to realistic valuations when first entering the market and using the right agent to guide them through the selling process, and this is proving to pay dividends in completing a successful move.
As experienced agents we have duty to provide a sensible and accurate valuation and a comprehensive marketing plan to benefit our new vendors. Having a complete package including conveyancing for selling has proven to be very successful with our vendors and offers a stress free experience from point of instruction to final completion.
Buyers are also aware of the powerful position that having pre-agreed finances can put them into, especially given the lenders strict lending criteria at present.
Our independent financial adviser Mr Steve Bedder says that first-time buyers and even second-time buyers continue to be supported by parents or relatives 'gifting all or some of the deposit'. He said that this helps because the larger the deposit the more competitive the mortgage deal.
In conclusion, when selling or buying a property in today's market, knowledge is the key and your local agent will be able to give you the information and empowerment to help you achieve that dream move.
Now is a fantastic time to consider marketing your home, and for you to join in with agents and our air of optimism.
