Well, what a busy few months, we can safely say that it has been one of the busiest quarters in comparison to previous. The housing market has made positive steps forward locally, and we are finding that many Vendors are still putting their properties to market when traditionally it has been “the quieter time of year”. The bank of England put their base rate up ever so slightly in November, thus leading to a lot of buyers coming to the market to make the most of the low interest rates on mortgages. This has led to many houses selling rapidly, some within less than 24 hours! Kiln lane, Vista Road, Oak Tree Road to name but a few were wrapped up in no time, much to the joy of the Vendors and Buyers alike.
Here at JB&B Leach, we have been ensuring clients are happy by finding them their forever homes and also doing our bit for charity. September saw us host the Macmillan Coffee morning, where we treated the public to a host of cakes and coffee, and raised over £600 for such a worthy cause, close to many of our hearts. A big thank you to all that came for a visit, and don’t worry we will remind you all again next year when we have the date for the next one! Many of us in here walked in with pound coins, and walked out with extra pounds in weight! (Ooops!!) but anything for a good cause! Danielle our Residential Valuer currently has reindeer food for sale in the office, fundraising for Cystic Fibrosis. So if you haven’t got any for the children yet, you know where to come.
More recently, Dan Roblin our Sales Manager managed to get himself a stint on Homes Under The Hammer. Looking dapper, he filmed an episode on Edgeworth Street in Sutton. Make sure you watch it on catch up if you can to see us promote our town.
We would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a wonderful Christmas & New Year, and hopefully 2018 prosperous for all.
Merry Christmas from all at JB&B Leach.
