Summer’s here and the time is right!
Leading West Country independent agents, Wilkinson Grant & Co are reporting one of their busiest ever summers for residential sales in the agency’s 24 year history. Agency principle, Roger Wilkinson, says “Despite the uncertainty surrounding Brexit we have been inundated with fresh buyer enquiries over the last few months, with the majority of people we are dealing with taking a very positive ‘let’s get on with it’ attitude.”
“The number of days a property is on the market before a sale is agreed, for fresh properties on our books, is reducing almost week on week and many of those properties that have been on the market for rather longer than we might have hoped have been attracting good numbers of viewings with sale being negotiated above the guide prices.
“Indeed, in the last eight weeks we have agreed, exchanged and completed on over £78m worth of sales.
“Summer’s here and the time is right – maybe not for dancing in the street (although many of our clients may well be!) But certainly for anyone who is serious about selling to take advantage of the summer breeze blowing through the Devon property market. If you have a property in Exeter, East, Mid or South Devon call us for advice on not only selling but how achieving the best price”.
