It’s been a super-busy couple of weeks for the sales teams at Swoffers, as 2020 continues where 2019 – a record year – left off.
Our local market team agreed 16 sales in a single week at the beginning of the month and our open market team negotiated 8 of the 10 sales that completed in January.
This level of sales activity is continuing.
‘We have seen a big increase in the number of people asking for valuations of their homes with a view to placing them on the market in the first half of the year,’ said Simon Martin, local market negotiator.
‘This is a free service we offer. We visit your home and use our local knowledge and market research to formulate a realistic valuation of your property. The team has lots of experience of the Guernsey property market and we compare your house or apartment against other similar properties that have recently sold before discussing a market value with you.
‘Our aim is always to get the best deal for our clients, and we aim to get back to you within 24 hours of our visit with our no obligation valuation and recommended marketing figure for your property.
The local market team is currently seeing big demand for three and four-bedroom family homes; sensibly priced, well-maintained properties in the £300k to £600k bracket are extremely sought after right now.
‘Our advice to buyers is to be quick. Make sure you are registered with us to receive our emails or texts when a new property comes to market and then contact us to book in a viewing as soon as possible or you might miss out,’ said Simon.
‘Now is a great time to put your property on the market with buyers waiting in all price ranges. Just give as a call.’
