Jon Lacey takes a few moments out from the busy Farnborough Office to give an update on the market for property in Farnborough.

Jon Lacey_web“We have had a fantastic start to 2014 with an increase on instructions and sales up by 60% over the same period last year. Vendors are taking full advantage of rising house prices allowing home owners to release equity from their homes that may not have been there 12 months ago.

“With interest rates continuing to stay at record low levels and with mortgage funding/government backed schemes more accessible than this time last year, now is the time to make your next move.

“With demand outstripping the supply, properties coming to the market are achieving the full asking price with many disappointed buyers still having to continue with their property search. We have seen a great success with our ‘Open House’ events allowing the vendors the freedom to go about their daily business, whilst we as the agent, arrange for multiple viewings within a specific time slot.

“Confirming the current housing market confidence, our latest phase of 20 apartments at the exciting Queensgate development sold out within a matter of weeks.

“We are also proud to have announced that Mackenzie Smith have been appointed to sell the unique selection of apartments at ‘The Convent’ which launches in April 2014. Consisting of beautifully finished two and three bedroom apartments we have many local buyers registering their interest to be among the first to view.”
