The housing market has been given the go ahead to stay open and we will continue to operate in the safest way possible, meaning we will still be able to help you move over this period. Following government guidance, our office doors will be locked and should only be visited by appointment only so that we can create the safest environment for you to speak to a member of our team. And of course, we are just a phone call away so don’t hesitate to get in touch to find out more.

What Can I Expect From the Autumn Sales Market?

As our Branch Manager Joe Rylett mentioned in his Spring update, the sales market in WD3 has been incredibly buoyant this year, with price increases on average around 17% year on year, but in some town centre locations reaching as high as 25%.

In September there were 161 properties on the market in our area and a tremendous 78,000 Rightmove searches for property in Rickmansworth alone, further fuelling the market, giving our Rickmansworth branch the best sales month so far in 2014.

However, we are starting to see a plateau now, with activity slowing slightly as we head towards the end of the year. I think that the recent indication from the Bank of England governor Mark Carney, that interest rate rises will be gradual and limited, is encouraging for the continuation of a strong market as we move into 2015.

If you are thinking of marketing your home for sale during the Autumn & Winter months, Sewell & Gardner are now exclusively offering a video marketing strategy to showcase your property during daylight hours, to compliment viewings taking place after dark.

To take advantage of this offer, please give me a call on 01923 601404 and I look forward to speaking with you.
