“It has been an exceptional year,’ said Andy Biggins, Swoffers Lettings and Management Director. ‘Our local market lettings has always been very strong and we seem to have been building on this year to year, but the encouraging aspect throughout 2016 has been the number of Open Market contracts we have been able to secure.
‘Guernsey is certainly attracting people, it is a pleasure to welcome these people here and show them what the island has to offer and, in truth, it is not a particularly tough location to sell! Hopefully this is a trend that will continue and the early signs are that LocateGuernsey is having an impact and there are some positive signs for the island.
Not to be outdone, the Swoffers management service continues to go from strength to strength and Swoffers looks set for record figures in 2016.
‘Our management service complements our Lettings perfectly and we are now managing more properties than ever before. It seems landlords are not only being realistic with their rental expectations, they are also aware that many tenants are actively seeking managed tenancies. It is an arrangement that they prefer and a managed property is actually a strong selling point when it comes to finding a tenant.’ Swoffers has a dedicated team of 12 that specialises in Lettings and Management.
