Property Market Update – April 2021

April was a record breaking month for PPP! Not only did we sell the most properties EVER in one month (making us the top selling agent in Perthshire for the year to date*), we also sold our highest value property EVER. 

Our team worked flat out to sell 48 properties and list 37 during the 30 days of April. Some properties attracted multiple viewing enquiries and sold in a matter of days, with prices rising for the right property in the right location.  Indeed, 11 of our April sales went to closing dates and 83% achieved full asking or above.  On average, we negotiated an additional £8,596 over asking price for each client. 

We also listed more properties in April than any other agent*, so we have some exciting homes hitting the market in May.  Demand from home movers and first-time buyers remains high.  This coupled with a prolonged shortage of supply means that it is a great time to come to market and achieve a good price and a quick sale.  Purchasers who can act quickly when the right property comes along will be in a good position, so having both a mortgage agreed in principle and your own property already on the market or sold will help to get you to the front of the queue if you’re looking to buy this spring.

"PPP were recommended to me.  Excellent marketing - really professional from the first contact. Photos etc certainly made the property look at its best!  Very organised for viewings etc and quick to act on potential buyers.

Superb customer service - any contact was very efficient, and I was contacted regularly to keep me up-to-date. Everyone seems to know what they’re doing 👍.  Dealt well with ‘glitch’ in the offer process. At no point did I feel that things weren’t being organised efficiently.

Extremely good overall - what could have been a stressful experience was made extremely easy and comfortable to negotiate.

Would definitely recommend - from the very first contact, professionalism was evident.  Everyone I dealt with gave me confidence that the house sale was in good hands.  A huge Thank-You!"

"Very happy with the prompt marketing, photos, we didn't want the 3 dimensional video on the site and you dealt with this sensitively and listened to our reasons.  Was impressed with the reach of your Facebook page as our property had over 1000 views in 24 hrs.

I thought you did a brilliant job with our buyers.  I was impressed with all of the staff we came into contact with in the entire process. The office staff were personable, polite and nothing was too much trouble.  A good offer came in quickly and you advised on our response using your knowledge of the current market.

The experience felt very personalised, I got the sense that you all genuinely wanted to help us sell our house.  Despite the fact that you were very busy, you didn't make us feel at any time that this was the case and promptly returned calls in a timely manner.  I cannot fault any of the experience from beginning to end.

Would definitely reccommend.  We were treated at all times with respect and care. The whole experience felt collaborative with also guidance.  I truly trusted that they knew what they were doing and I was in safe hands.

Thank you again Alan and Katie and your entire team."

"We chose PPP due to their professional manner and previous positive experience with them.  We are delighted with the marketing. Not only was the person who came to take the photos, drone footage, video etc very Covid safe and respectful, he produced simply amazing standard of marketing material.

We feel that PPP dealt with potential buyers in a careful and helpful way. We knew what was happening at all points.  I can't fault the customer service during the selling process.  I could phone or email at any time of day and always got answers and/or advice. I felt in good hands.

PPP negotiated our sale with care and respect. We can't fault the process.  We felt supported and positive about the whole process.  Would recommend and have done so already. It is easy to do so with such a committed professional group of people who work so well together.

Thank you so much!!"
