Rightmove has just announced that it had its busiest days on record over the Christmas and New Year period with the number of “page views” up by 22% when compared with the same period in 2014. This record breaking activity is reflected by a similar exceptional level of sales agreed at Eric Lloyd & Co’s offices in Brixham and Churston during December and early January. Jonathan Bye, director of Eric Lloyd & Co, commented that “the recent Christmas and New Year period has been one of the busiest he can remember with sales being agreed right up until Christmas Eve as well as immediately at the start of the New Year. The only problem is that we sold more properties than we listed!” As a consequence of all of these sales Eric Lloyd & Co have many strong buyers whose requirements we have not been able to meet from our current listings, thus making now the perfect time to place a property on to the market for anyone considering a moving in the early part of the year. Demand for “buy to let” type properties and second/holiday homes is particularly strong at the moment as potential buyers aim to beat the changes in stamp duty due at the start of April. If you are considering a sale the first step is to arrange a free valuation to be carried out by one of our highly experienced valuers. This is just a phone call away – Brixham 01803 852773 or Churston 01803 844466.
