North West looking positive
The North West ran in just behind London and the South West in terms sales expectations in the recent RICS report.
The North West was one of only three regions – the others being London and SE – that in March saw an overall more positive attitude to house price expectations.
Good to see
Paul Ainsworth Lord, founder of leading Darwen Estate Agents, Ainsworth Lord Estates indicated, “Cruising through the survey, it was good to see the North West leading the way in agreed property sales and, I was also pleased to see our Region to the fore on completed home sales too.
Although our regional figures showed us suffering a slight fall in prices in some instances, we know that getting the prices competitive is key. It is this that can impact on speed of sale and that is as important as price levels in many respects when it comes to building market confidence.
Get the price right
As a responsible Estate Agent – covering many parts of the Region such as Darwen, Bolton, Blackburn, Manchester to name but a few – we make it a priority to get people moving by negotiating the right price for the right property with reality balanced in with a sensible amount of expectation.
Then, they are confident and expect to sell – and we make sure they do. We always strive and maintain the best and fastest home sales rate in and around Darwen and beyond- and at the moment we are doing more often than not, ” added Paul.
