Media reports of a slow-down in the house sales market are true but not exactly an enormous surprise, afterall autumn is traditionally the time that agents get a breather after a busy summer. This year is no different but the encouraging news is that the slowdown hasn’t started until September, compared to the previous two years when business seemed to be done and dusted as early as July!

Enquiries from potential new sellers has dropped considerably over the past two months and we expect this to continue right through to the New Year. However, this makes it the perfect time to do the leg-work if you’re planning a move in 2013.

If you are considering selling your property, now is the perfect time to arrange a FREE no obligation valuation from your local independent licensed estate agent. GO Property Services would be happy to assess your property’s selling potential and we may be able to make a few suggestions of improvements that could help you find a buyer in the New Year.

Phil Wardle from GO comments “Following the same pattern as the last 2 years, we think January is going to be all important with motivated buyers hitting the internet straight after Christmas to see what has come to market”

2012 has been GO Property Services best year to date and with home sales up 50% year on year, and the majority of homes listed finding new owners, GO are developing a reputation for selling what we advertise, rather than just listing hundreds of properties in the hope that some of them sell!

The GO ethos is to maintain a strong focus on customer service and go the extra mile. The sale of an ex-rental property that completed in August took almost five months to complete, and was only successful due to the tenacity of our team. The vendor subsequently wrote the following testimonial: “GO Property Services acted as agent for my property for several years. They dealt with all the tenant’s problems, arranged repairs when necessary and handled every aspect of the property’s management. When it came to selling the property recently, they did that for me too – overcoming all the difficulties and obstacles quickly, efficiently and without fuss. I really can’t recommend them highly enough.”
