First, First, First, why you shouldn’t wait to act

You will have heard the opinions of the press, your family, and your neighbours - everyone has their own view on the property market and what’s happening right now.  The reality is that what happens in one location can be very different to another, which is why it’s always best to get a clear and honest view from an estate agent local to the area.

When it comes to viewing a property, you may not be in any rush. Well, it will still be there next week – or will it?  This has been a summer of firsts, and we have three amazing stories to share with you.

First viewing

Set in the picturesque Riverside Park on the banks of the river Wye, only a mile from the historic market town of Monmouth, sits our first property.  A fantastic park home with riverside views, we knew there would be a lot of interest, but even we were surprised by how quickly this property was sold.

On Friday 3 August this fantastic park home went live on our website and the property portals, and very quickly we had requests for viewings that weekend.  The first viewer fell in love and put in a full asking price offer, which was accepted – SOLD!

First unseen

We always advise any potential buyer to be added to our mailing list so we can keep them updated on the latest properties coming to the market.  The advantage being you get properties sent straight to your inbox rather than having to keep checking what’s new.

We listed a 1-bedroom apartment in Coleford, and it was sold to an existing applicant. What makes this sale special is that the new owner didn’t even view the property before making an offer!

First viewing

The unique features of our next property in Soudley were such that we knew it would capture people’s imagination, and we weren’t wrong.  Accessed via a bridge across a stream, the cottage was full of character, with its rural location, beautiful gardens and woodland views, it benefits from an idyllic setting that is hard to ignore.

As soon as the property was listed on Rightmove our Cinderford branch were inundated with phone calls. Sadly, there were many disappointed potential buyers, as again it sold on the first viewing for the full asking price of £210,000.
