paragraphWEEKLY UPDATE - 18TH OCTOBER 2016Hi, the latest Rightmove intelligence has been released today and confirms exactly what is happening in the Sheffield property market, Rightmove say:-
It's a Sellers' market in the northern regions. The six northern regions (North West, North East, Yorkshire & the Humber, East Midlands, West Midlands and Wales) saw an 11% fall in the total available stock for sale compared to the same period in 2015, continuing the downward trend over the last few years. This reduction in choice for buyers hampers their ability to negotiate and gives sellers the confidence to both ask for higher prices and hold out for their asking price. The number of sales agreed have risen by 3% in these regions compared to the same period a year ago.
Here at Banner Cross we can 100% agree with this report although October has interestingly seen more listings than September already at our branch (we are the top listing agent in S7, S10, S11 and S17 in the last couple of weeks) . Sales are still being agreed in record quick times for very strong prices with price ceilings smashed on both Rustlings Road and Ranby Road. This is all positive news for sellers and is also a credit to the excellent sales team so if you are considering selling then please don't hesitate to contact us and take advantage of this excellent market place. Thanks and see you again next week. All at Banner Cross
paragraphWEEKLY UPDATE - 7TH OCTOBER 2016Since the beginning of October the branch has seen a marked improvement on all things property. Listings are up on this time last year which goes against recent form and the demand for property remains very high. The Rustlings Road property mentioned last time sold with multiple bids for in excess of the asking price, Ranby also performed admirably and both houses on Broomgrove are currently attracting fierce competition from a diverse range of buyer and we will probably look to close both mid next week. This week we have a beautiful and extended Edwardian semi in Totley up for sale at £375,000 which seems very reasonably priced when you look at the excellent location, close proximity to the best schools in Sheffield and of course its situation right next to the beautiful countryside that surrounds our fab city. The open viewing is not quite booked up (2 spaces remain) so if you are in the market for this area/price band give us a call to book your appointment. With 15 other properties already listed for October being mailed out to our exclusive mailing list before they go on to the open market perhaps you should also consider registering your details with our team at Banner Cross to ensure you dont miss out on the home of your dreams. Thanks for reading and we will be back next week with another update. All at Banner Cross
paragraphWEEKLY UPDATE - 21ST SEPTEMBER 2016Hello from Banner Cross, its been a pretty hectic week here so far with many people turning their attention to selling their homes after the holidays. We have just listed 123 Rustlings Road and have an open day booked for Saturday 24th September if you would care to view. We cant imagine this property will hang about, attractively priced at just under £480,000 with 5 bedrooms and park views to both the front and rear this will surely appeal. If that is too much for your budget we have an absolutely beautiful terrace on Ranby Road available for £295,000, this one has a fabulous finish and already has 5 people lined up for appointments on the 24th. With a few more slots available on the open viewing now is your time to call and arrange your appointment to view.Next week is also shaping up quite nicely already with 2 large Victorian semis coming on the market on Broomgrove Road, both of which need a scheme of modernisation but priced at £340k and £350k there is a lot of room in the budget to grab one of these superb properties and turn into the home of your dreams. If you are interested in any of these properties then please don't delay pick up the phone and call us to arrange a viewing before they sell. See you next week, all at ELR Banner Cross.
