Agents report good end to year
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.
