paragraphMarket update - April 2016
Spring has sprung, and the property market has kicked into gear with a record first quarter in our Peak Park offices and registration of new applicants up on last year. March saw a flurry of sales and completions before the governments new tax changes for second homes buyers came in to effect and an early Easter created a real buzz in our Hathersage and Bakewell offices. The encouraging news is that the recent tax change has not dampened interest in buying second homes in the Park as new applicants continue to register in high numbers.
Our Bakewell office continues to go from strength to strength selling three lovely homes in the last week for asking price or above in Baslow, Bakewell and Great Longstone. We have recently been instructed on two bungalows in Bakewell and something special in Baslow so keep an eye on the website over the coming weeks. A big congratulations goes to Steph Gough who was quoted in the Sunday Times recently offering market comment, and promoting the fine region in which we live! ELR continue to sponsor the Helens Trust Chatsworth 10K and many of our colleagues, friends and family will be taking part on the 1st May - any donations to Helens Trust will be kindly received.
Our Hathersage office is expanding and we are pleased to announce Louise Platts will be joining us a sales negotiator. Louise brings over ten years of experience in the property industry including spells in London and for one of the world leading property firms, Knight Frank Residential; we are all looking forward to her joining the team. The demand for property in Hathersage and the Hope Valley remains very high; we have a bulging register of buyers desperate to move here from Sheffield, London and Manchester to name but a few. This is highlighted in the selling of Oak Cottage, Padley Mews, Grindleford for £475,000 (asking price) before it came to the market and 1 The Cottage, Hathersage for in excess of £25,000 more than asking after 9 offers!
This week has also seen the launch of our auction stock (the auction is being held at The Maynard Arms, Grindleford on the 27th April at 3 pm if you would care to join us) with 6 lots available for viewing over the forthcoming weekends and our Area Valuer Tim Venn's personal ''pick of the bunch'' being the plot and land at Pindale Road, Castleton which is attracting a huge amount of interest already. Please feel free to pop down on auction day, enjoy the drama and see some strong results for our clients.
