Hello and what a frosty Saturday morning it is - be careful out there! - The market has certainly woken up from the festive break, there has been a sharp increase in valuation requests across both offices and encouraging responses from people looking to get their properties on the market.

Supply and demand is still a huge factor with the apprehension of coming to market ahead of finding a property being preferred. We know that this doesn’t put you in the strongest position given the number of buyers out there, the best thing to do is get on the market and put yourself in the best position possible.

Here’s the round-up from across the business!

“Elise our star lettings negotiator has had some fantastic success securing 3 fully managed tenancies for our new landlords with some great prospective tenants! The success doesn’t stop there with one of our investors from the Landlord Club securing a property we suggested - this will be marketed in a couple of months time! Aimee is in preparation for a busy year ahead with her portfolio of managed properties! EXCITING!” - Gabrielle Argue, Lettings Manager

“My heads spinning with all the exciting activity. We’ve secured two new instructions in B91, another in B93 to follow later in Spring and a couple more pending decisions. Sales have been strong, offers coming in on our new listings and an offer accepted in Tanworth-in-Arden. Lots more booked for next week!” - Kathy Griffiths, Head of Premium

“What a crazy week for the Dorridge team with back to back valuations and viewings! With multiple offers on 2 properties from buyers chasing their dream home, it’s certainly the time to sell! We are excited to have another 2 ready for pre-launch viewings next week, and with 3 others hitting Rightmove in the last 24 hours, it will be Weetabix all round for breakfast next week!” - Lisa Smith, Branch Manager - Dorridge

“We’ve had a cracking week in Solihull starting with some valuable training for the sales team. We have been inundated with valuations booked, and the team have agreed sales on numerous properties with multiple offers and interest. What a whirlwind! Saturday is an action packed day from start to finish. I would love some 3 bed semi’s and 4 bedroom family homes to sell across B90 and B91 please! - Week three, we are ready for you!” - Jo Sanders, Branch Manager - Solihull

“Great response to our launch of Collier Gardens in Tidbury Green. I will be looking to invite all registered applicants in to the office next week to view plans and secure some early off plan sales. Another new homes site to launch next week offering 3 and 4 bedroom family homes as well as two land and development opportunities which will be dealt with off market; a reminder to anyone interested in sourcing land and development opportunities to register with us to hear of such opportunities moving forwards. Continuing the push to source more land and development opportunities with a huge number of house builders requesting work in what is now a buoyant marketplace to say the least.” - Chris Evans, Land & New Homes Manager

Thank you to the teams across the business for all of the activity being generated and here’s to hoping that the wheels are greased and properties hit the market by the dozen!
