Agents re­port good end to year

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

IT’S been a good end to the year for many agents, in­clud­ing Blenkin and Co in York.

Tim Blenkin re­ports that in the three months Septem­ber to Novem­ber they have sold £16mworth of houses.

“That is a record for that par­tic­u­lar quar­ter. I think buy­ers woke up and ‘smelled the cof­fee’ at the end of the sum­mer break. Per­haps a num­ber of them were fed up with rent­ing and we had the right stock at the right price for them.

“York town houses sim­ply flew off the shelf. One of them at nearly £1.5m.” Re­al­ism also played a part. “Our clients re­alised that ‘£950,000 is the new £1.25 mil­lion’ and the buy­ers agreed with that too,” says Tim.
