Property Market Update from the The Wyre Forest into the West Midlands

Sat 22 July 2017

"We have enjoyed a very positive July and August with much needed stock coming in and filtering through", explains Phipps & Pritchard with McCartneys Property Expert Zoe Herbert from our Kidderminster office.

"It has been an unusually busy holiday period for properties coming to the market.

We have seen a vast increase in applicants registering and viewing activity as we have headed towards the end of August through into September. 
As we have transitioned into September the activity levels for viewing requests and offers have elevated above and beyond the expected back to school rush. Now that the Summer Holidays are behind the focus is very much back on property and the desire to be in their new home before Christmas. Sold signs everywhere! Fabulous."

Mark Hayward Chief Executive of NAEA Propertymark re-iterates the above in his comment:- “It is natural for the market to dip in the summer and then recover. We usually see a subdued July and August, and then a boom in September with an in influx of new properties coming onto the market. We’d also expect to see the number of house hunters increase, as buyers strive to complete sales before the winter kicks in.”

Zoe went on to reiterate the importance of setting a realistic asking price to come to market coupled with crisp, bright photographs and factual details is paramount. Ensure you stand out from the crowd. Floorplans are essential for buyers to see how a property will flow for them or indeed if and how a layout can be altered.
