Did Brexit uncertainty effect the value of your home in Cannock 2018?

Did Brexit uncertainty effect the value of your home in Cannock 2018?

2018 will always be remembered as the year where we were divided as a country. No matter which side, Leave or Remain your allegiance is with, we can all agree that the uncertainty about the future is a constant worry in all aspects of our life, whether it be personal or business.

Amidst all this doom and gloom and the serious amount of fear mongering, what effect did this have on the local Cannock property market?

Well, it seems not much. House selling prices rose in Cannock by 3% in 2018. This is an increase of 7% on 2016 when the average house price in Cannock was £167,000.

 

The Facts 2018

315 Detached properties were sold in Cannock, average price £252,000

474 Semi-Detached properties were sold in Cannock, average price £155,000

151 Terraced houses were sold in Cannock, average price £143,000

71 Flats were sold in Cannock, average price £99,000

 

Overall most sales in Cannock over 2018 were semi-detached houses with an average selling price of £155,000 followed by detached houses with an average selling price of £252,000.

 

Cannock with an overall average selling price of £179,000, was similar in terms of sold prices to nearby Hednesford (£186,000) and Norton Canes (£182,000) but was cheaper than Heath Hayes area (£190,000)

In summary Brexit didn’t have a great impact on the local Cannock property market, a steady increase in house prices has been experienced with no solid information available to say this will change.

The future based on recent behaviours seems good for the local market, if you are thinking of selling or letting your property, I would be happy to help with any advice you need. Selling or letting your property really isn’t that daunting especially when you have someone to help you.

That’s far too cheap to do it properly, isn’t it?

No!. You might think that, and we could easily put our prices up, but that’s not the point.

The point is, even though this apparently new way of selling and buying (Open House have been doing it for years) saves customers thousands (we agree with that) we can provide everything you need to market and sell your property. All at the best price, efficiently and quickly with real people in an office helping you through the whole process for as little as £698.

Yes you did read that price right! £698 – that’s great value for money.

No shortcuts -no “you do that bit your self”  and you won’t hear us say “You cant meet face to face in an office to discuss your very important, potentially life-changing decision to move”.

Take a look at the expert services we provide for Sellers, Buyers, Landlords & Tenants; it is everything you expect and more and yes, at what seems too be a too cheap to be true price.

No, we are not ‘cheap’, we are at the right price to provide exceptional value for money.

We expected better service

It’s frustrating when you can’t get the service you require from your local estate agent isn’t it!

As homeowners ourselves we appreciate that a lack of support and service can turn what could be an exciting time into a nightmare.  Finding the perfect home to move to, selling your property at the right price, obtaining the best mortgage advice and deal that suits you, are just a few of the things that should be expected from your estate agent.

Many other personal arrangements need to be made all based around the time of moving, making sure the children and pets are cared for, organising removal of your belongings, telephone numbers redirecting post, the list goes on.

Chasing solicitors of both parties and trying to find out if any issues regarding either property may have arisen during the process, has the mortgage been agreed in principle, agreed and finalised. Did they say they would be leaving the summer house or not, it can all get into a bit of a tiz when daily life also has to continue?

Many of our clients have come to us based on previous experience of what they consider to be poor and sometimes none existent service. Our ability and support to not only reduce the stress out of buying and selling their home, but to keep them informed and manage communications between all parties on their behalf.

At Open House Stafford & Stone we pride ourselves on the personal service we provide to all of our clients whether buying selling letting or renting.  With our team at the office in Stafford town centre, we are open and available to assist you in the whole process of moving home. Even in peak times throughout the year, we are here to have a chat, give best advise and help move things along professionally and in your best interests so you can concentrate on the things you need to do.

Perhaps Open House Stafford & Stone provide the unexpected levels of service that some people don’t experience from their chosen estate agents and have to make do with. You don’t want that do you …. do you?
