This is incredibly encouraging news for anyone who is considering selling their home in the Southside of Glasgow in the near future. Most notably because 84% of all of our ‘family home’ sales in 2016 were sold via multiple bids and achieved an average of 9% above Home Report valuations, with an average selling time of just 16 days.
Naturally, larger traditional sandstone villas in the Southside of Glasgow, which range in price between £250,000-£450,000, remain as popular and coveted as ever and attract a great number of viewers and offers. Sales prices range between £120,000 to £300,000 for one bedroom flat and luxurious five apartment town flats, respectively.
Throughout the last 3 months of 1016, our Shawlands branch listed an impressive 96 properties for sale – more than any other agent locally. During that time, we sold 78 residential properties, with sales prices ranging from £100,000 to £370,000. Viewing levels for the period increased almost 25% when compared against the same period in 2015.
What’s more, our average selling price has now increased to just over £170,000, which clearly demonstrates the thriving and lucrative property market in the Shawlands area of Glasgow. However, despite how well the property market is fairing, seller success does rely heavily on the appointed estate agent.
Although the market is buoyant, not all properties are snapped up at their deserved price, unless you choose the correct agent and marketing strategy. One of our most recent successes at Clyde Property Shawlands was the sale of 32 Lochlea Road, Newlands – a beautiful 3 bedroom, semi detached house in the heart of Glasgow Southside. Having been unsuccessfully marketed for three months by a different agent, the frustrated owners decided to approach Clyde Property for help.
By tailoring and enhancing the the high-quality, innovative marketing materials and techniques at our disposal, our sales team attracted multiple viewers and sold the property at closing date within the space of just two weeks. Needless to say, the sellers were delighted at the efficient and lucrative success of selling their home through Clyde Property Shawlands.
