Even if you’ve only remotely had your ear tuned to the current media and analyst discussion around property, you’d probably know things are on the up.

In the past couple of weeks the team here at Hicks Real Estate have sold tHicks Real Estatee properties by matching sellers to interested buyers – before advertising.

Now, a cynical first thought could be: “How hard is it really for agents to sell in these conditions.”

The reality is of course even a mediocre agent will sell properties under favourable market conditions. A great agent however will perform above and beyond expectations by selling your property swiftly and for top-dollar. Something mediocre agents do by accident, not consistently.

A great agent will run a meticulous data base of interested buyers: Matching buyers and sellers where they can.

A great agent will also confidently refer you to clients to check out their satisfaction levels. Ask for testimonials, they can be highly illuminating.

Overall, analysts and the media are cautiously reporting good things for the property market. See here or here for more on that front.

So, how does all this relate to you?

Well, if you’re thinking of selling, don’t worry about Christmas getting in the way. Many buyers love the idea of a New Year settlement. If you’re looking to buy, some sage advice for these market conditions: get yourself organised, and approach your offer with a liberal sprinkling of non-attachment. It can be tough out there. You win some. You loose some.
