This is it, the school holidays are kicking in, and (apparently) summer is well and truly upon us. Traditionally this is a time when the family buyer activity slows a little as people are distracted with the holiday period, however I'm delighted to say that the sales market appears to be moving along nicely with lots of new properties still coming to the market to satisfy Didsbury's insatiable demand for good quality homes.
The lettings market is really flying, with July and August traditionally being the busiest months of the year in Didsbury, particularly with the professional sector (Doctors in particular) starting new contracts. Bearing all the above in mind, if you're considering selling, thinking of renting out your home or letting a rental investment, don't hold back - the market is with you! Feel free to call on 0161 434 4311 or pop into the office to discuss your options.

What is ‘gazumping’ and how do I avoid it?
If you’re looking for a new home, or are looking for your first home, then “gazumping” may be a term that you aren’t particularly familiar with. Essentially, gazumping is when you have had an offer accepted by a seller, and are in the midst of the buying process, when another buyer comes along and offers a higher price, effectively stealing (or gazumping) the sale.
