Viewings double for January

January has proved a bumper month for one of the county’s leading estate agents.

Balfours Property Professionals has seen over 200% increase in viewings compared with January 2015. “We are delighted with the significant increase in viewings,” says Tim Main, head of sales at Balfours, attributing key factors to the agent’s move to new premises in Shrewsbury town’s Square.

“The Square, puts us in a key location in the town centre. Also compared to last year we have increased the staff team, which was a driving factor for the move to larger premises; both the increase in staff and larger premises reflect our calculated optimism for Shropshire’s housing market,” adds Mr Main.

Balfours’ dedicated town sales manager, Alistair Hilton adds: “Last year properties in the SY1, 2 and 3 areas rose in value by three to five per cent, those in the SY3 were up by 5.29%, according to web-based independent source, Zoopla. We are seeing buyers who finding the right home are prepared to make sure they don’t lose it. During December and January we have had several properties which have achieved above guide price.”

Alistair continues: “Shrewsbury is a gem as a county town; qualities including independent shops, a wide choice of private and public sector schools, culture, architecture and countryside on the doorstep make for quality of life, for such a broad range of aspirations.
