Following the property market holding its breath in the run up to 31st October, once both buyers and sellers alike then saw that once again this date turned out to be nothing worth holding back for, BUYERS BOUNCED BACK – almost immediately!
Properties that buyers had viewed weeks before and had said they liked but were going to watch and wait they stopped watching and waiting and started OFFERING and I am pleased to say that for many of our home owners, these offers are now converting in to sales! There also seems to have been a bounce back with buyers relocating from London and the south. As much as prices haven’t risen in the south this year, where these buyers may have been looking to purchase say in the home counties, with a little less money than they were anticipating, they are realising just how far their money will go by going that little further north; even taking this into account they are often able to bid the strongest on properties in our area!
In light of this and the high speed network of trains that service our broad area, our Meet & Greet Service at both Peterborough and Grantham Train Station goes from strength to strength; so much so that we are looking to compliment it in early 2020 with a Meet & Greet Premises directly on the A1. For those looking to visit our area by car but struggling with town centre parking etc, our A1 Meet & Greet will see us meeting up with buyers by appointment, chatting through their requirements over a coffee and then travelling to view properties up and down the A1 corridor.
How people are searching for properties is changing fast and buyers are very much looking for the complete one stop service from their agent. We have exciting things planned for 2020 with this
concept very much at the heart of it; we hope to share these plans at our Late Night Christmas Shopping Event in Oakham on Monday 9th Dec. Please start to follow us on : Moores Estate Agents or : mooresestateagentseastmidlands for further details of these plans as we roll them out in the New Year.
And on a final positive note, many of our home owners who may have thought that they wouldn’t be seeing a sale this autumn, are now happily in a position to proceed but are desperate for properties to view. For an off market introduction of these homeowners and other proceedable out of area buyers now, please call any of our branches.
