Book a Property Valuation

Interesting to read some research published today that people still prefer the branch network to contact estate agents, its great news for the high street and local business that employ local people #shoplocal #supportlocalbusiness #YnysMôn #Anglesey #Gwynedd

70% of public still think branch is important when choosing an agent - research by property software firm Alto also reveals that online reviews and recommendations count too.
Nearly 70% of the public still say a high street branch is important when choosing which agent to use, a survey by lettings platform Alto has discovered, along with online review and personal recommendations.
The software provider quizzed 700 customers to discover that when choosing an agent, 99% reckon recommendations and reviews are the most important factor.
Despite the increasing role of technology and virtual viewings, having a physical branch where customers can visit or speak to an agent in person is viewed as important by a substantial 69% of respondents. Alto says this highlights the value of building a rapport with clients and is a good sign that face-to-face viewings still play a vital role.

Time to Spring into action? 


The decision to extend both the stamp duty holiday and the furlough scheme, as well as the new guarantee for high loan-to-value mortgages, have played their part in reducing uncertainty and boosting confidence. 


Add to that the easing of lockdown, rollout of the vaccine, impressive business growth, the traditionally busy spring market, particularly this year with its pent-up demand, and we have a recipe for one of the strongest seller’s markets in recent memory.


According to the Acadata House Price Index the average price in Wales & England stands at £339,160 – a rise of 9.8% on the same time last year - out of interest in our area, our sales are currently averaging £259,245. This provides us with a real sense of how the housing market is significantly outperforming the wider economy.


That’s great for home owners and property investors, albeit not so good for people not yet on the property ladder. According to one of the large property portals, buyer demand last month was up 34% on the same time last year and supply levels of properties for sale are down 13%. This imbalance is at a ten-year high.


So it’s competitive out there.  If you’re looking to buy, it’s critically important that you can demonstrate that you are in a proceedable position. Ideally you should have your mortgage agreed in principle,- they’re not easy at the moment. In the ideal world, you should also have your own property either sold or under offer, and you must accept that you may need to be flexible on both timing and price.


If you’re selling, then you’re in a strong position, and yes, you may well secure an impressive figure, even ahead of your asking price in some instances.  (That happens about 11% of the time (source Propertymark).  But do be careful how you pitch your price.  Please do speak to us before plucking an impressive figure out of the air, as that often leads to disappointment.


There is more to this than meets the eye. We CAN help you maximise your price but there’s a bit of science behind it, a bit of psychology, as well as our local, specialist expertise in choosing the best method of marketing your property.


In fact, we may already have the right buyer for your home, and they might pay a premium for advance access to it.  


Some people tell us that they are reluctant to put their own property on the market because they feel they might not be able to find anything suitable to buy. That’s understandable. But so often, during times like this, many sales are agreed “off-market” - to pre-qualified buyers before the property even hits the portals. So we say, “have a little faith” – there’s more out there than you might expect, but you may not be offered it until you yourself are in a strong position to buy.  So take the plunge and enjoy this seller’s market while you can.


Please don’t hesitate to contact your local office listed below for a free “virtual” or “physical” overview, with a smile and no obligation, no paperwork, no fuss in a safe manner.


From the team here at Williams & Goodwin may we extend our best wishes for a safe, healthy and  Happy Spring and summer Market!

Welcome to the March 2021 Property Market Comment:
Fortunately for the property market, there was no immediate bad news in the budget this week.
In a nutshell, nine months ago, the government sought to bolster the economy in Wales by helping the property market, by the temporary removal of Land Transaction Tax (Stamp Duty) on a property purchase up to £250,000. That concession was due to end on 31st March. The deadline has been extended in Wales until 30 June. In order to benefit, the transaction must complete before 1st July 2021 (the new deadline).
So that’s really good news for the property market and we expect this to herald what is already looking like a very busy spring and summer market ahead of us.
This Government clearly believes in home ownership and especially helping first time buyers get on the property ladder. As we know, high property prices have made that difficult, due to mainly young people requiring large deposits of maybe 10% of the property’s value. So the government will now be guaranteeing the loans of banks that are prepared to lend to any buyer with just a 5% deposit. So that’s 95% mortgages available once more, up to £600,000.
Interest rates, for the time being, remain incredibly low and the government is controlling unemployment by extending the furlough scheme until the end of September when most businesses are expected to return to pre-pandemic levels of employment.
Britain has proved once again that we are extremely good at weathering storms, as proven by our amazing vaccine roll-out programme, confidence levels are already beginning to improve.
We have very high hopes for the rest of this year, so if you’re contemplating a move during 2021, now would be an excellent time to take action.
