It’s been a great first quarter for Embleys, buoyed by a strong economy and well performing marketplace. It’s fantastic to see the regeneration of the Coast move on apace, with Spanish City and the new promenade front and centre of this.
Our eighth year in business has really marked a step change for us and as a now firmly established estate agency, it’s clear that word of mouth is our greatest driver of custom. I want to say thank you to all those who have trusted us with their property move or rental and who continue to recommend us to family, friends and colleagues. It’s appreciated.
Any wobbles the property market may have had last year in relation to Brexit are now far behind us. This year we’ve already seen double the number of people registering with Embleys. Just a simple comparison with this time last year says it all – in 2018 the number of properties we’ve placed under offer is up by a third.
For properties sold in quarter one, on average it only took 10 viewings and five weeks to sell.
As you know, we always strive to exceed expectations and asking prices so it’s great to report we achieved on average 99% of the asking price and 100% or more for 52% of properties.
Of course, Embleys now also offers a rentals and property management service. It’s a pleasure to say this has been performing equally well, with 98% of properties achieving the full rental price. With the average time to let being just 18 days (and one property being snapped up in just one day), our marketing efforts are obviously cutting through.
If you’d like to sell, let or rent through us please just pop in or give us a call on 0191 252 2810 – we’re always happy to help in any way we can.
