Housing market showing encouraging signs

CURRENTLY we are seeing qualified buyers outnumbering sellers in the early part of 2023,” says Chris Pick from Alasdair Morrison & Partners.

“With very little new housing stock currently on the market, viewing activity is quieter than we would normally expect to see at this time of year. However, there are still encouraging signs. My diary is currently getting busier day by day with requests for market valuations, and I’m taking bookings for new properties which will shortly come to market.

“As always, pricing is key and it will pay potential sellers to take the advice of local estate agents on board. As a Valuer, I always ensure that I suggest a competitive sale price, backed up by strong data from recently sold comparable properties. I am always keen to price property correctly the first time, which helps to avoid reductions later on as the property is marketed.

“Newark and Southwell are interesting ‘hyper local’ housing markets, which tend to reward sellers who have priced their property correctly with plenty of viewings and offers.

“Our sales consultants maintain regular contact with our registered buyers to ascertain their current needs and these insights are invaluable as we can also feedback this knowledge to our sellers.As new properties come to the market, we can then match those up with interested buyers and organise rapid viewings.
