House prices likely to rise in popular areas in North Leeds

Posted 22/01/2016

Already in 2016 we are seeing an exacerbation in the shortage of houses available compared to the number of buyers looking to move. It means that, once again, we expect to see rises in house prices by up to 5% in some places.

In our most popular locations of Roundhay, Oakwood and Chapel Allerton, we are able to sell properties before they even hit the open marketplace, thanks to multiple buyers looking for similar types and styles of property. This highlights the importance of registering your details with a local estate agent who knows the market inside out. We have the inside knowledge on what is coming to the market, and we can do a lot of the work for you. 

When properties do hit the open market, they’re not taking long to sell either. The average time to sell a property in the LS7/LS8/LS14 and LS15 areas combined is approximately 55 days. With Preston Baker’s Property Launch scheme, we are cutting this down to an average of less than a month and, in many cases, achieving over the asking price within 14 days of the property going on the market.

At Preston Baker we see every vendor as an individual, with their own specific reasons for wanting to move. Our aim is to make that move easier, not just achieve a sale for our company. Please do get in touch with us to book your free Market Appraisal and see how Preston Baker can help to get you moving.
