Shipways estate agency is inviting customers to take part in its Open House event over the Platinum Jubilee bank holiday weekend. The team will be making the most of the rare long weekend - conducting viewings on both June 2nd and June 4th - and looks forward to helping as many house hunters as possible in their search for a new home.
Featuring many properties, including those that are new to the market and reduced in price, the Open House event will provide the perfect opportunity for customers that wish to maximise their selling potential by creating a buzz around their property. According to recent Rightmove data*, 53% of properties are selling at or over the full asking price, the highest level ever seen, meaning this is a great time for sellers to put their house on the market.
“We usually see a rush of buyers entering the market in springtime, and so we’re encouraging homeowners to get their property on the market now and take advantage of the double bank holiday weekend,” says David Plumtree, Group Estate Agency Chief Executive of Shipways’s parent company Connells Group. “Our Open House event is designed to help market our customers’ homes to their full potential, reaching as many buyers as possible. With all regions in the UK reaching new record price highs for only the second time since 2007*, there is the real chance to sell your home quickly wherever you are in the UK, and for the best possible price.”
“Many businesses will close over the Platinum Jubilee weekend, but we are open and it’s business as usual so be sure to get in touch with us soon to secure your place in our Open House event.” continues David.
Open House viewings will run on both June 2nd and June 4th. For a free market appraisal and to secure a place in the event, or to register your interest in attending an Open House event, please contact the local Shipways branch.
