The Perth Property Market 2019 – Off to a Flying Start!
Here in Perthshire, despite the current doom and gloom surrounding the UK property market, we have had a fantastic start to the year. Our Perth office has secured 19 sales during January across many price points. The most encouraging factor is that we have managed to agree offers on some of the higher value properties on our books.
Despite the ongoing Brexit saga, it has been an encouraging January and with high demand for properties and valuations, which looks set to continue into February and March.
We have many registered buyers actively looking for homes across Perthshire, so if you are thinking of a move this year, this could be the ideal time to sell your home.
Take a look at three exceptional properties at the higher end of the market, for which we secured offers in January.
