Here at Embleys we pride ourselves on one thing: exceeding your expectations and your asking price.
And despite 2019 having been a challenging year due to political turbulence and uncertainty over Brexit, we are proud that this is what we have continued to do.
The infographics in this report are designed to provide an easy to read overview of our performance and paint a picture of a year in which our customer service has really set us apart.
Take our stats: you’ll see that 100% of vendors and buyers gave Embleys five star Feefo reviews. Added to that, nearly 46% of our clients in 2019 were repeat customers or referrals. That’s testament to the hard work and dedication of my fantastic team and I’m grateful to them and to everyone who has trusted us with their business.
This includes our lovely landlords and tenants. Our rentals and property management service has continued to thrive and we expect to continue this strong performance as we move into the New Year.
I’m pleased to say the coastal market has seen growth, despite recent low homeowner confidence while everyone waited to see what would happen with the General Election and the UK’s withdrawal from the EU. According to trends data from Zoopla, across NE25, NE26, NE27, NE29 and NE30, over the past five years the average property price has increased by 17.6%. This will have been helped in part by low interest rates and competitive deals from lenders.
As for us, we have continued to smash our targets. Over the last twelve months, on average we achieved 99% of the asking price for our clients, with an average time to sell of just five weeks. What’s more, 41% of the properties we sold in 2019 achieved 100% of the asking price or more. Our valuations are always realistic are based on local market data and it’s great to see our knowledge and experience pay off.
Demand is strong as we move into 2020 now a newly elected majority government is offering certainty about the year ahead. If you’re ready to move, why not let us achieve these great results for you too.
All the best.
Julie Nelson, Managing Director
