Another good month for property sales with buyers looking to move into their new home early in the New Year. For some time now there has been a shortage of property stock with the amount of buyers looking, far outweighing homes available.
A great number of buyers are looking to relocate to the area. The improvement of Calne and surround over recent years really has made the area the first choice now for a lot of buyers who are relocating. The quality of homes available is being matched by the facilities and the warm welcome from the Calne Community. The feedback from recent surveys is that ‘Friendly’ is the word that comes up time and time again when discussing Calne and surrounding Villages.
A bonus for Home Movers is that Local Authority Searches seem to have speeded up. An investment in more Staff has meant that Searches are coming in around three to four weeks. All boding well for a smoother process in the New Year.
Last December was an amazing sales month with seventeen sales agreed in what was a frenetic month. The level of buyers is definitely out there to achieve the same result but it will be dependent on the level of new stock coming to the market. Prices seem to have stabled with buyers wanting to pay the right price for a home. Buyers we have dealt with this past month have taken a long term view on price agreed. Quite simply, price it right and a sale should be agreed in a short time scale.
