MAG­INE putting the fi­nal touches to a goat’s cheese salad in your open plan kitchen and then sip­ping Pimm’s out­side while the chil­dren race around your end­less gar­den. Not your re­al­ity? Think again.Your dream home is not as un­re­al­is­tic as you think.

A 6% rise in house prices in Buck­ing­hamshire over the past six months, ac­cord­ing to Zoopla, has meant that ev­ery home Place On­line Es­tate Agents gets on our books is sold in record time – of­ten ex­ceed­ing the ask­ing price.

Agency founder Sarah Cas­sidy said: “The houses are lit­er­ally be­ing sold as soon as they come in. It’s tempt­ing for es­tate agents to be com­pla­cent in this mar­ket – ad­vis­ing the seller to ac­cept the first of­fer just to get a quick sale and bag the com­mis­sion.

“But, this mar­ket is great for ne­go­ti­at­ing a bet­ter deal and se­cur­ing prices way be­yond the seller’s wildest ex­pec­ta­tions.”

If you’ve been hum­ming and haw­ing over whether to put your house on the mar­ket, there can be no bet­ter time to test the wa­ters, she said.

You could, of course, hang on and wait for the skies to turn grey and the mar­ket to drop, but then you’ll face another year of squeez­ing din­ner guests into your cramped kitchen or mak­ing do with a match­box gar­den.The choice is yours.

There is no bet­ter time than to­day to find out how much you can get for your home and get a step closer to your dream home.

And if you want an agency that will try to make your money go fur­ther by get­ting you the best deal, then this is what a Place client – Barry of Bea­cons­field – said:“I had been try­ing to sell a house in Wooburn Green through a high street agency with no luck. I switched to Place Es­tate Agents, who sold it for me in no time.

“I was im­pressed with the way the sale was nur­tured and the high level of ser­vice from start to fin­ish.”
