Swoffers has again confirmed its reputation as the go-to estate agency for the open market, with latest figures showing that it handled 100% of agency sales last month. There were six agency sales during May in Guernsey, and Swoffers was responsible for all of them.
We are proud that our experience, expertise, and hard working team continue to allow us to dominate the open market sector. Across the first five months of this year, data shows that Swoffers has negotiated nearly 60% of the entire sum of open market agency sales.
So far this year the open market sales section of our website has had nearly 38,000 visits.
Director Sophie Ephgrave, said that there were lots of reasons why Swoffers continues to sell more homes than other agents.
“We use a wide range of strategies and tools to target and market to buyers, and we’re a trusted voice in the island with the best network of contacts.
We understand how technology has changed buying habits and we know how to generate quality leads.
So we’re delighted, but not surprised, that these latest figures show that Swoffers has consolidated its position as market leader.”
The first half of this year is proving to be another strong period for both of Guernsey’s housing markets. In the open market, overseas buyers are recognising the opportunity of making the move to Guernsey.
The island’s relaxed lifestyle, low taxes, world-class beaches, and access to nature are attracting a range of buyers from young entrepreneurs to people with well-established business interests.
So far this year there has been 34 open market agency sales, and Swoffers negotiated 20 of those. In 2021 there was a similar picture, with Swoffers handling half of all open market sales, and 57% of all sales of £3m. and over.
