Weekly Bulletin 24th November 2015

A recent report for national statistics has suggested the average house price for the UK is now at £286,000.

This year Shirley has experienced some unbelievable prices being achieved.  In some pockets we have witnessed up to 20% increase in house prices following the alteration of the stamp duty.  The popularity of Shirley seems to be constantly gaining momentum; stamp duty alteration, Park Gate & school catchment along with infrastructure improvements are just some of the reasons we are hearing and it’s not just people looking to buy, naturally tenants are wanting to experience the benefits of living in Shirley too, improving stability within the lettings market seeing the average rental term exceeding 24 months.

Another superb week for sales and lettings, 9 sales agreed & 8 instructions and a record breaking number of new instructions for the lettings team.

According to rightmove.co.uk Smart Homes are the No1 letting agent and selling agent in the B90 postcode.
