    Property news - June
    image cannot be displayed

    Summer has arrived, gardens are in full bloom (thanks to the incessant rain!) and the Hope Valley property market remains very buoyant. At ELR Hathersage, we have had a strong first half year, with 35% increase in sales compared to 2015 and there is no sign of it slowing down.

    The problem we continue to have of too many buyers, and not enough sellers remains, so sales times are speeding up, and prices achieved are getting close to the asking price.

    Some Facts and Figures for 2016

    Average % of sale price agreed: 99.17%
    Average viewings per sale: 14
    Average time from sale to exchange of contracts: 60 days

    So, if you're thinking of selling, the above example will give you an insight of what to expect. What may surprise some people is that we achieve on average 99.17% of the sale price on each property; this being down to advising a realistic valuation, and having an extensive list of waiting buyers.

    Creating strong early interest is key to achieving a good price, a high initial valuation will lead to reductions further down the line, and a more protracted sale.

    If you are considering selling or would like a valuation on your home or investment property, please do not hesitate to contact us on 01433 651888.

    Headed up by our experienced auctioneer Nick Riddle, the auction department at ELR is continuing to grow in popularity, creating a niche for properties that offer something 'that little bit different'.

    Our quarterly auctions held at the splendid Maynard Arms Hotel in Grindleford have attracted great crowds, creating a real buzz in the room and resulting in some exceptional sold prices.

    If you have a property which is unusual, has holes in the roof, a wonky gable end, or even something that is 'just hard to pigeonhole'; you should consider contacting Nick and our dedicated team to discuss whether selling at auction may be the right option for you.
