When you are thinking of buying or selling your home, it pays to think local. While the media talks about “the property market” in general, the local marketplace is measured by supply and demand. With current demand being so high I am often seeing several bidders testing the value of a property and this why sellers really need to talk to a local expert.
Not all sellers are in the same position and not all buyers are equal. To avoid time wasting, a clued-in local agent can attract genuine buyers to the right property and introduce enough competition to have the sale move along. This can achieve the right price in a reasonable time frame which is more difficult with only one bidder.
We keep a database of ready buyers and therefore have a good idea of who the likely buyers might be when we take on a new property for sale. Take for example 2 properties sold recently in Lackagh and Knocknacarra at €20K and €50K over the asking prices respectively. We now have a large number of suitable, finance-ready buyers to keep in touch with when similar properties are listed.
For any queries please do give me a call, Michelle on 087 2500716, your local property expert about your buying and selling needs.
