Congratulations to Carol Knights who has been an absolute star through September. Michelle Archer nominated Carol for a bottle of bubbly. Carol worked flat out sorting out EICR reports for hundreds of our managed properties! Partly with a terrible cold! Well done Carol!
Oulton Broad has always been an attractive proposition for buyers looking for a home with a good level of local services, entertainment and employment nearby. Forming the most Southerly gateway to the Broads from the coast, Oulton Broad is a popular destination for visitors too, attracted by the thriving centre for watersports with powerboat racing including its regular Thursday night speedboat racing, sailing, canoeing and paddle boarding. Its also a wonderful place to take a slower pace and enjoy the scenery and wildlife at your leisure, either walking, cycling or by boat with lots of places to visit, shop and eat and drink.
Our Lowestoft office currently offers an attractive bay fronted house on Bridge Road for sale, just a short distance from the Broad. This handsome period property has been beautifully improved and modernised by the current owners and benefits from views towards Lake Lothing to the rear. The spacious accommodation includes three bedrooms, a modern fitted kitchen, first floor bathroom, ground floor shower room and two generous reception rooms. Outside, there’s off road driveway parking and a generous rear garden.
September is traditionally a very busy time in the housing market. Many buyers return to house hunting after their summer holidays looking to make purchases that can complete before Christmas. We also generally see a spike in new instructions and properties coming to the market.
This month is no different! Couple the above with the fact that the stamp duty holiday up to £250,000 ends 30th September 2021 it is safe to say it is very busy in our offices at the moment.
The housing market remains strong and we expect activity to stay very good as we move in to the fourth quarter of 2021.
If you are thinking of moving call us today to discuss your options.
Last week we had a couple in our office in Gorleston looking for a detached bungalow. We had no detached bungalows in the area that they were looking to offer, however, we had an excellent extended semi! The couple didn’t want to view but Eleanor suggested since they were in the area and struggling to find they should take a look!.....
60 minutes later we received an offer from them and they are now proceeding with the purchase! They are over the moon with the bungalow.
At Aldreds we always match our properties to clients on our database and who are looking to purchase across our areas. Although we advertise heavily online we are not reliant on it and maintain the same desire to match houses and buyers that we have had since 1857!
