First-time buy­ers are head­ing to Red­dish

Macclesfield Express - - HOMES -

PRICES in ever-pop­u­lar south Manch­ester sub­urb Red­dish are boom­ing ac­cord­ing to James Armitage, Red­dish area man­ager for Philip James Wil­son, who spe­cialises in the area.

He said: “We are ex­pe­ri­enc­ing much greater de­mand for prop­erty in Red­dish this year and are achiev­ing con­sid­er­ably higher sale prices.

“Our av­er­age sale price for all com­ple­tions in 2015 thus far has in­creased just over 10 per cent com­pared to the same pe­riod in 2014.”

With great trans­port links to Manch­ester city cen­tre and the mo­tor­way net­work, Red­dish is in a favourable lo­ca­tion and pro­vides more af­ford­able prop­erty choices than some of the neigh­bour­ing sub­urbs.

This is mak­ing it an in­creas­ingly pop­u­lar choice for first-time buy­ers and buy-to-let in­vestors alike.

“I be­lieve the in­creased de­mand for the hous­ing stock at the first-time buyer end of the mar­ket has stim­u­lated the mar­ket at all lev­els,” he added.

James runs a unique prop­erty busi­ness cov­er­ing Red­dish and the sur­round­ing area, and of­fers a be­spoke and per­sonal ser­vice to his clients.

With the flex­i­ble work­ing hours that he op­er­ates, as well as his level of knowl­edge and ex­pe­ri­ence in the in­dus­try, he is able to of­fer a ser­vice which is sec­ond to none.

Many of his clients are rec­om­mend­ing him to their friends and fam­ily, which is tes­ta­ment to the level of ser­vice they have re­ceived.

In ad­di­tion to the 10 pc house price rise, Philip James Wil­son has also man­aged to achieve 98.5pc of ask­ing prices in 2015 com­pared with 97pc in the same pe­riod in 2014. While this 1.5pc in­crease may not sound like much, it equates to more than £2,000 on a house worth £150,000. Greg Davies, branch man­ager at Philip James Wil­son, said: “While I ac­cept that mar­ket con­di­tions have un­doubt­edly im­proved in the past 18 months, I also be­lieve the per­sonal ser­vice James pro­vides means he can un­der­stand buy­ers’ re­quire­ments bet­ter and there­fore more ac­cu­rately match the right buyer with the right prop­erty, lead­ing to sale prices closer to, if not at, or over, the ask­ing price.

“We have been par­tic­u­larly busy over the sum­mer months and are in need of fresh prop­er­ties to sell. If you have a prop­erty to sell in the Red­dish area James would love to hear from you.”
