Mortimer & Gausden Estate Agents

We have had another very busy month, selling many lovely homes across the bury area. Our figures for March have surprised even us and for those of you who like a good pie chart we thought we would share our results.


Prices achieved - 37% of our sales were at their guide asking price and an impressive 63% of properties sold, achieved over their guide price …….which means nothing sold for less than the price we set.


Time taken to sell – 72% of the sales we agreed were within the first 7 days of the property being launched, 14% sold within 2 weeks of marketing and nothing took longer than 3 weeks.


Buyers' Position – 37% of buyers had already agreed sales on their own homes, 24% had nothing to sell, 15% were true cash buyers and 24% were First Time Buyers. It was interesting to see that some of the sales to first time buyers were on properties over £400,000!


The key to our success is a combination of accurate valuation advice and comprehensive marketing – the results speak for themselves.

Are you getting frustrated that when a suitable property appears on rightmove and other property portals, it seems to be sold before you get the chance to take a look at it - if so, we have good news!
From now on, every property we list will appear on our own facebook page first, so if you follow us on facebook you will be sure to hear about not only the properties about to be listed but also some of those coming up in the future.

Spring to the market!

The question of the best time to put your house on the market is one we agents get asked on a regular basis. Of course the answer is when it best suits the client. But if you find yourself being able to decide, then the answer has to be in March.

According to figures obtained from the UKs leading property portal, Rightmove, research has revealed that March is the month when the most buyers get in touch with agents for each property available. Put simply demand begins to overtake supply so home-movers coming to the market in March have the best chance of securing a buyer. Add to that the fact that the quest for more outside space increases as the weather improves, with buyers aiming to be in their new home by summer.

So if you’re thinking of moving soon now may be the most productive time to take that leap! For any more advise or to have a chat about that the next step involves call the team at Mortimer & Gausden on 01284 755526
