The property market was extremely active and buoyant in the final quarter of 2017 and the early signs are this trend is set to continue into 2018.
In previous years the housing market has slowed dramatically after Halloween and remained sluggish until the early Spring however this pattern is no longer applicable. Our office was exceptionally busy through the winter months at the end of last year which continued right up to close of business on 22 December and this high level of activity has continued immediately on our return to the office on 2 January.
Our diary of appointments is busy with both accompanied viewings and valuations at properties which are coming new to the market in 2018.
We have seen a return to a strong, stable housing market and are seeing a very high demand, from both investors and owner occupiers, in all price ranges, especially in the traditionally strong core areas close to lifestyle amenities such as public parks, shops, public transport, schools etc. Bidding situations are common and competition is high.
In addition, the rental market is exceptionally dynamic, there is an incredibly high demand for any newly listed properties with most securing new tenants within one viewing session and within days of listing.
