There are conflicting messages everywhere about what is happening right now in the property market on a national level. What about what is happening right here in North Staffordshire? Let Heywoods explain….
It can be difficult sometimes to know what is happening right here in our home towns of Stoke-on-Trent and Newcastle under Lyme when the majority of facts and figures we hear and see are about the housing market at a national level.
The most recent report UK Housing report from the National Association of Estate Agents (NAEA) for April 2016 suggests that there has been a fall in the demand (by a fifth) for housing and that it is at its lowest level in two years.
Now it might be the case that the housing market saw a rush of buy-to-let investors trying to beat the stamp duty increase deadline and this has then seen a relative decrease in demand following these changes.
This is not what we are seeing here at Heywoods….. Not even close!
We saw in INCREASE in the number of property sales agreed in April compared to March, some of which sold in a matter of days for an asking price which exceeded the expectation of the seller - testament to the hard work and expertise of all the team here at Heywoods. This is despite us having a rush of buy-to-let advisors in March.
It is really important you have the right advice and support if you are thinking of moving and this is where you can be sure Heywoods are here for you every step of the way.
