Melissa Field of local independent estate agency Need2View Property Services trading from Albert Street in Mansfield commented that demand for property locally is high even taking into account the seasonal upturn expected at this time of year. The number of sales agreed at this time of year is the highest it has been since they opened with the most popular price range being £100,000 – £200,000. Properties priced either side of this bracket are also enjoying good levels of activity. As they approach the second quarter end Need2View report to have had a bumper period exceeding all their expectations. This is despite the general election and continuing political uncertainty. It seems to be that irrespective of outside influences, it is very much business as usual for the Mansfield property market. They had wondered whether Brexit would have a detrimental effect however, confidence would appear to be high; as long as sellers have a realistic expectation and are prepared to be flexible in negotiations, then Need2View are agreeing sales. In fact, currently 50% of their overall stock level is sold and they are keen to replace this stock to satisfy demand. If therefore, you would like a market appraisal at no charge and without any obligation then Melissa and the team at Need2View would be very pleased to hear from you. It is very important to get a local view on your property since the overall national trend is too vague and to consider media reporting commenting on a downturn in prices for example in London and the South East, really has little or no bearing on Mansfield and the surrounding area. Melissa is a member of the local business group Mansfield & Ashfield 2020 and from the meetings she attends believes there is a very positive vibe about local employment in the area. Whilst ever employment is strong and mortgage interest rates remain at their lowest levels for many years, there is continuing optimism for the remainder of the year. If people are considering moving but would like to have a mortgage financial health check to determine their borrowing capability then this is something that can be arranged by Need2View. Clients can be given access to independent whole of market mortgage advise so again, if anyone would like to arrange an appointment, please get in touch with Melissa and the team. Need2View have regular contact with many local firms of solicitors whose conveyancing departments are also benefiting from the upturn in business. Melissa reports that having a good relationship with local solicitors helps them to smooth the path during what can be a stressful and anxious time. They offer the whole package; from pre-sale advice, property preparation and detailed market appraisal through to personalised customer service orientated sales marketing and post-sale progression updates. They focus on client communication throughout the whole sales process. Should you be looking to move home then Melissa at Need2View would love to hear from you.
