The property sales market remained buoyant during November with the volume of sales and listings continuing to run well above 2019 levels.  We achieved more sales than any other agent covering the Perthshire area, selling 31 properties in locations such as Perth, Scone, Luncarty, Almondbank, Bridge of Earn, St Madoes, Auchterarder and Crieff.  Flats accounted for just under half of sales, whilst the majority of house sales were for bungalows.  Demand remained high with 16% of sales going to closing dates and buyers willing to pay premium prices for the “perfect” property.  77% of sales achieved full asking price or above, generating an average profit over asking price of £7,292 per client. 

The lettings market was also busy with strong demand for good quality houses in desirable areas.  We secured tenants for 2 large houses in Scone within a week of hitting the market and these types of properties are achieving good rents.

It has been a hectic 18 months for the property market since the end of the first lockdown.  The net result as we approach the start of 2022 is a lack of available properties, yet ongoing strong buyer and tenant demand.  Typically, the market naturally slows in the lead up to Christmas, then rises sharply in the new year as households use the holiday period to make a decision around making a move.  Indeed, the property portals record a boom in the number of people searching for property online during Boxing Day. 

For those thinking about selling or renting a property in the new year, December is a great time to contact us for expert advice on how to prepare your property for listing at the start of 2022 and get ahead of the competition.

"Great to deal with, nice people and on the ball. We had an ex-rental property to sell, and had to decide whether to 'love it' or 'list it' in it's current condition. Katie & Alan were great and understood our situation, we decided to try the property on the market and discussed a fair price for the 'list it' option. All went well and the property sold quickly. Can't thank them enough for their advice and support. Would definitely recommend this company and would use them again."

Douglas McQuat (March 2024) – “This was our first move in 34yrs so we were very nervous but everything went quickly and well leaving us to only worry about the actual physical move.  Premier made the necessary processes easy and understandable. They also dealt with us as people not just a client, this made us feel so much better.

"We put our property on the market with Premier just prior to lockdown but subsequently withdrew it. We were very happy with how Alan handled the situation at that time as well as the marketing. We originally went to them through the recommendation of a mortgage consultant.

We loved the Facebook countdown! The photography and virtual tour were first class. The photographer obviously took a great pride in her work and the results spoke for themselves.

You contacted people who had shown an interest in similar properties and we actually had 3 viewings booked before it was released. Bartek did wonderfully well in convincing the buyer what to offer.

The service was excellent in particular Bartek who showed potential buyers around and Alan who offered great advice on the deal.

This was our first move in 34yrs so we were very nervous but everything went quickly and well leaving us to only worry about the actual physical move.  Overall, we felt very pleased and relieved.

Would certainly recommend. Premier made the necessary processes easy and understandable. They also dealt with us as people not just a client, this made us feel so much better.

It was great to know that we were in the hands of people who cared."
