Under Government Guidelines, Estate Agents remained open throughout the second national lockdown, and whilst keeping our clients and team members safe, we have just had a record month for Sales Agreed!

According to Rightmove the current average time to sell stands at 50 days, which is quicker than ever. Rightmove have also stated that the average asking price of properties has increased by 5.5% with the number of active buyers in the market is also 66% higher than this time last year!

If you are considering a sale of your property or are on the market unsold and you’re not seeing new this activity reflected in your property please contact your local S J Smith Estate Agents office here.

Anyone completing a purchase on their main home before the March deadline does not have to pay tax on property values up to £500,000 – a saving of as much as £15,000.

PS – Remember, it may not be too late to switch agent. Simply ask us how…

NB. If you have already instructed an Estate Agent on a Sole Agency basis, the terms of that agreement must be considered to avoid the possibility of paying two commissions.
