Housebuilding Rates Increase to Decade-High

 

original article posted by Zoopla

 

It has been reported that the number of new homes being built has reached its highest level for 10 years. But, the total is has still fallen short of government targets.

 

There was a 6% increase in new properties registered to be built in 2017 compared to 2016. But despite this, the number of new houses being built is below the Governments target of 300,000 per year.

 

The Government aim to build one million new homes by 2020 but a number of factors are still hindering developers, including delays in getting planning permission and a shortage of suitable land.

Going, going… nearly gone! Our latest Auction catalogue is out now!

 

auction hammerIt’s that time of the month again when our popular auction catalogue is published, jam packed as ever with fantastic properties be it for investment, residential or commercial use.

 

Rook Matthews Sayer works in association with Agents Property Auction who manages the auction process of all our auction properties and is supported by a regional network of fifty estate agents.

 

If you’re looking to sell your property quickly then you may consider selling it at one of our monthly property auctions. If your property doesn’t sell, you have no fees to pay. Our no sale, no fee auction is held once a month.
Why sell at Auction? The main benefit of selling your home at auction is the fixed timescale. If you need to sell quickly then auction could be the answer. Other potential benefits include:

 

  • It’s fast; on acceptance of an offer, the buyer agrees to a timescale, giving you the peace of mind of a definite exchange date.
  • Control; you set a reserve price and the property can not be sold for a penny below.
  • Security; the successful buyer places a non returnable financial deposit. If the buyer withdraws from the sale they will forfeit the deposit

 

When and where?

 

North East Property Auctions are held once a month. The next auction where these properties will be on sale is on Wednesday 31st January at The Marriott Hotel, Gosforth Park. 6.30pm registration – 7pm start

Happy Bidding or Selling!
