Don't Wait for Spring

Tue 15 March 2016

With its spectacular countryside and ranking as one of the happiest places to live in the UK, mid Wales has long been a magnet for anyone looking to escape more frenetic parts of the UK.


Rock stars, entrepreneurs and actors have all called this part of Wales home and its appeal is as robust as ever in 2016 with a strong start to the year.

Tom Carter of the region’s top estate agents, scooping best Estate Agents in Wales at the Sunday Times Estate Agency of the Year 2015 Awards, says:

“Viewings and sales numbers are up on the same period in 2015, while general enquiries also appear to be coming through in greater volumes.

“A greater number of purchasers who are ready to buy have their funding in place. Either as cash buyers, or with readily available finance in place, which is another positive trend so far this year. 

“The biggest issue that we have at present is availability of stock. Traditionally sellers wait until spring before marketing their property and whilst we are busy looking at and providing appraisals on a lot of property at present, the numbers actually coming to market now are low. 

“So we find ourselves in a classic situation of low supply and high demand, which could of course result in some short term upward pressure on prices. 

“Our advice to people looking to sell in the area is to market your property sooner rather than later, take advantage of the volumes of buyers who are looking right now and perhaps achieve a better price for your property by avoiding the spring rush of property coming on, saturating the market and perhaps settling prices down again.”
