Open Sales Evenings Invitation Posted: 29th November 2016

The property market in East Renfrewshire has remained strong throughout 2016 and enjoyed a steady increase in sales, average property values and buyer confidence, most notably in the third quarter of the year. Whilst the property market typically slows down during the winter months, it’s still very much a good time to consider putting your home on the market or prepare it for sale at the start of the new year.

If you are thinking of selling your property in the forthcoming weeks or months, or you simply wish to discuss your options within the current market, drop in to one of our open Sales Evenings on a Wednesday or Thursday between 5-7pm for a no-obligation consultation with one of our directors or sales executives. Alternatively, we are happy to visit your property, in confidence and provide and discuss a complimentary market appraisal.

Moving home is always a daunting prospect, which is why it’s best to seek expect, impartial advice and arm yourself with as much information as possible before making any decisions. Here at Nicol Estate Agents, we have unparalleled knowledge of the East Renfrewshire property market, which allows us to promote and sell our clients’ homes at the the best possible prices within a time-frame that suits them.

Our services

Our open Sales Evenings provide the perfect opportunity to meet our property experts and find out about the services we offer, including:

  • Complimentary, no-obligation appraisal and tailored marketing plan proposal
  • Comprehensive pre-sales preparation
  • Personalised marketing strategy
  • Private and open-market sales
  • Comparable sales evidence
  • Accompanied viewing service
  • Bespoke, professionally-designed brochures

To top it off, Nicol Estate Agents will not charge you any upfront selling fees for your residential property. You’ll have nothing to pay until your home is sold, giving you some extra wiggle room over the festive period.

With UK interest rates at a record low of 0.25%, and a return in confidence in the housing market following the Brexit vote, there are clear signs that property prices and sales will continue to rise in the coming months. Compared to the same period last year, our sales have increased 26% over the past 4 months, with East Renfrewshire properties in particular enjoying quicker closing dates and premium prices – some of the highest we’ve seen in many, many years.

As we approach the end of 2016, buyers are still viewing residential properties and sales continue to be agreed. Whilst many people have their minds on other things at this time of year, there are plenty of folks taking advantage of rising house values and the Bank of England’s base rate cut. We have a database of qualified registered buyers who are keen to purchase now, so it really is a great time to think about getting your house ready to sell.

At Nicol Estate Agents, our team has a proven sales track record and over 80 years’ combined industry experience. With a dedicated, personal approach, we achieve results time and time again and are always happy to discuss your property requirements or market queries.

Please feel free to contact us to arrange a free, confidential market appraisal of your home.
