ACTIVITY in the housing market traditionally tails off during the summer months but this year local estate agency Shipways in Rugby is seeing high levels of committed buyers looking to purchase a property in the area.
Property sales manager Amy Turner said properties that are well presented and correctly priced are selling well.
She said: “However, even in these market conditions it is important for people wanting to sell their property to make sure they choose an estate agent who will work hard to get the right result for them.”
Amy said Shipways is advising sellers to listen to their estate agent’s guidance on how to make their property stand out from the crowd.
Properties typically look their best in the spring and early summer when flowers are in full bloom and the sun is shining, so sellers need to make sure their property looks as attractive as possible to potential buyers.
The estate agents are also advising people who are going on holiday this summer to make sure your estate agent is fully aware of their holiday plans, knows their contact details and can gain access to their property.
“Even if you can’t be contacted whilst you are away, you can still leave specific instructions in writing with your estate agent and legal representatives about what offer may be acceptable,” added Amy.
”Whether you are going away or not, there’s no reason to delay your sale until after the summer – your ideal buyer might be out there at this very moment.”
