Wow - I thought Half Term was meant to slow things down for the week - how wrong was I.

There has been a phenomenal amount of interest in properties across the board, in particular we are seeing lots of activity at the sub £500k level in Hall Green, Shirley & Solihull. In Dorridge the demand for property between £300k and £800k is relentless and the Million Pound plus market remains incredibly strong.

I remain grateful for those that are continuing to fly the flag for DM & Co., referred business is the very best - thank you!

For those that are looking to ‘Sell in Spring’ - now is the time to get ready for launch. If you would like to book a valuation - please click here.

Right, that’s enough from me, here’s the round-up from across the business!

“This week The Landlord Club focused on Acocks Green! Private rents across the UK rose by 2% year on year with Acocks Green rising by +16% in the past 12 months! The area has become a popular location for couples and families that are looking for affordable homes within a walking distance of public transport & amenities. Meanwhile, Elise & Aimee have been busy letting our new instructions with almost all resulting in group viewings, multiple applications & a need for more properties! If you have a property that is sat vacant or an end of tenancy fast approaching we can get it let for you!” - Gabrielle Argue, Lettings Manager

“We’ve had a fantastic reaction to our new Victorian Semi on Station Road with a full diary for this Saturdays pre-market viewings. Two new B93 properties have gone live with lots of viewings already booked! I am particularly excited to be going out a little further afield with a fantastic instruction in Henley-in-Arden which we will be previewing shortly. We still have lots of demand for properties between £1m & £1.5m especially in Solihull and Dorridge so please do get in touch if you are thinking of moving and would like to instruct The Premium Team!” - Kathy Griffiths, Head of Premium

“A great week to finish February, with the team tying up lots of sales, and a full diary of viewings this weekend. The volume of buyers is still high, with 60% of our February instructions selling before launching on Rightmove. The team are busy preparing new properties to launch in March, so make sure that if you are looking for your next home you get in touch with the office. We are incredibly excited to have some new instructions in Henley-in-Arden and Warwick - we don’t just sell in B93, so if you are looking to sell in the surrounding areas, please contact us to find out how we can help you.” - Lisa Smith, Branch Manager - Dorridge

“Wow, what a week we have had 8 sales agreed, offers pending and a busy weekend of viewings. We have been delighted to assist our clients in finding their dream properties and assisting them with their property goals. There is nothing better than informing clients that their offer has been accepted after a two-year search and happy vendors alike who have achieved over the asking price for their property with little fuss. Please look out for our sneak peeks as 3 clients found their dream home in this way! If you are looking to sell or buy, we urge you to get in touch we are in need of good 3 bedroom plus family homes in the borough of Solihull.” - Elaine Birkley, Assistant Branch Manager - Solihull

“The market continues to grow stronger with an increase in those looking for development plots increasing week after week. We’re handling a number of opportunities off market with another plot going live on the open market this week in Solihull on Kineton Green Road. This has no planning history but with existing outbuildings to the rear, we feel is a no-brainer for anyone looking to build their own dream home within a prime location (STP). Interest in our new build homes is buoyant with Links Drive attracting interest from those looking for a large luxury family home near to - but not in the very centre of - Solihull. Currently pushing for anyone that knows they’re wanting to move in the near future to get their homes on the market; get yourself into a proceed-able position or you’ll find it difficult to reserve anything NEW!” - Chris Evans, Land & New Homes Manager

Let’s be honest - selling your home is never going to be easy, there will always be something that doesn’t quite go to plan - what is incredibly important is how your agent reacts to these instances. If you would like to learn more about how we operate, please get in touch with the Solihull or Dorridge office on 0121 775 0101 or 01564 777 314 respectively.

We look forward to hearing from you.
