“House sellers should look to the future with greater confidence as demand for property across the county continues to rise,” so says Gary Holland, partner at leading local estate agent, Holland Broadbridge.

“Following a rapid start to the year, the current Shropshire housing market is set to remain buoyant. We are predicting a solid future ahead with key factors such as low interest rates and competitive lending fuelling the momentum. Government help to buy schemes are also playing a fundamental part in driving sales at the lower end of the market, with first time buyers benefitting from financial assistance.

“Naturally, the rush for second home and buy-to-let properties peaked just before April, with home buyers and investors putting on the pressure to complete sales prior to the new Stamp Duty Land Tax taking effect on April 1.

“While the market has witnessed some major changes during the first part of 2016, demand for property is high. House prices will continue to rise as they did through 2015, and the market will become increasingly competitive with a slowing down of new instructions. For this reason, first class customer-service and an intimate knowledge of the local market will be top of the estate agent’s agenda, in advancing market share.”

Established just over 22 years ago, Holland Broadbridge has built up an enviable track record for success. Bedrock to the agency is its commitment to deliver the very best customer service, from initial valuation and tailored marketing through to financial planning and completion of sale. The agency also operates a successful lettings division which manages a wide portfolio of properties to aid both landlord and tenant. With on-going investment, staff training and recruitment, the 16-strong team remains at the forefront of the Shropshire property market.
