Beat the spring rush, says Con­nells

Northants Evening Telegraph - Property - - FRONT PAGE -

Award-win­ning lo­cal es­tate agency Con­nells in Oak­ley Vale, Corby is urg­ing home­own­ers who are think­ing of sell­ing their prop­erty to take ad­van­tage of cur­rent high ac­tiv­ity lev­els in the hous­ing mar­ket.

The lo­cal agent has recorded in­creased num­bers of buy­ers and sales since the start of 2012, so is ad­vis­ing those look­ing to move home to bag an early buyer rather than wait­ing for the tra­di­tion­ally busy Easter week­end and spring mar­ket.

“we’ve seen a surge of in­ter­est from buy­ers since the start of 2012, in­deed, Con­nells sales fig­ures hit a five year high in the first six weeks of the year,” says Stu­art Marsh, Branch Man­ager for Con­nells. “There is now a huge pent up de­mand to buy a home so any­one look­ing to sell their prop­erty should take ad­van­tage of this and se­cure a buyer be­fore the usual sea­sonal rush.”

Over the next few weeks, Con­nells es­tate agency ex­pects to see the tra­di­tional flurry of homes com­ing onto the mar­ket as sellers look to cap­i­talise on the im­prov­ing weather and a more buoy­ant hous­ing mar­ket.

“At the cur­rent time, de­mand from buy­ers is out­weigh­ing sup­ply so it’s a great time for home own­ers who are look­ing to sell to get their homes on the mar­ket,” Stu­art con­tin­ues. “In 2012, we’re see­ing greater de­mand from first-time buy­ers, as well as those who have been putting off mov­ing home over the last few years but are now ready to take the plunge.”

If you are think­ing of mov­ing and would like to book a free mar­ket ap­praisal of your home, con­tact your lo­cal Con­nells branch on 01536 747320 or email oak­ley­vale@con­
