Pay­ing more for the right prop­erty

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

THE mar­ket may be in the dol­drums, but the right prop­erty can still fetch well over the ask­ing price, ac­cord­ing to Tony Wright,head of res­i­den­tial for Carter Jonas in the North.

“We’re find­ing that the right prop­er­ties are still cre­at­ing strong in­ter­est and that there are buy­ers will­ing to pay over the guide prices to se­cure the prop­erty they want.”

Manor House in High Birst­with, Har­ro­gate, had 40 view­ings within three and achieved a sale price sig­nif­i­cantly over the £1.25m guide. Holm­stone Cot­tage in Colling­ham sold above its guide price of £175,000 and had 51 view­ings.

Tony adds: “The mar­ket is un­cer­tain but York­shire is a pop­u­lar area to live.”
