A great start to 2014 shows sales results up 56% on this time last year throughout our offices in Perthshire. The record results have been down to a combination of a greater access to lending products and a growing confidence that property prices are on the increase. With these kinds of statistics 2014 is starting to look very exciting indeed.
There has also been quite a dramatic change in the mix of buyers so far this year with the biggest surprise coming from the Investment market. Investors have been relatively quiet over the past 6 years in Perthshire only picking up the odd bargain or forced sales where they can. It seems now they are returning as they sense that prices will continue to rise and what better time to buy when prices are still very reasonable. It seems that the BTL market has shown good returns year on year and now coupled with price increases could be just the ticket to a sound future investment in Perthshire.
I would certainly be advising anyone considering a move in 2014 to feel much more confident about achieving their goals. The market ahead looks to be very positive in more ways than one. Prices will certainly increase and timescales for selling will reduce. The real focus for the Next Home team this year will be to encourage more Vendors onto the market who previously may have been lacking in confidence, due to the uncertain market. With our buyers database rapidly increasing it is inevitable that all of our branches will need more stock. We already are taking on more properties than anyone else in Perthshire due to our excellent service levels and Sales results, but we still require more.
If you are buying or selling I would encourage anyone to give our team a call, we are in the business of getting people moving, and it is our passion and main focus every day, 7 days a week. We would be delighted to assist you in your search for properties or the sale of your own, and you may just be very surprised how reasonable our prices are for such a comprehensive service.
