As the nights start to draw in, award-winning estate agency Connells in Oakley Vale, Corby, reports it is seeing several rays of light in the local property market. As is traditional at this time of year, Connells has experienced a rush of activity as homeowners look to secure a sale and move before the Christmas holidays.

Mark Pearson, branch manager for Connells, said: “It is not unusual at this time of year to see more people looking to move. We often find that with the summer over and children back at school people can turn their attention to moving home. Whether you are buying for the first time, upsizing, downsizing or looking for that ultimate dream home, September is a great time to get the ball rolling if you want to move before Christmas.”

Connells in Oakley Vale says it is seeing a greater degree of confidence across the market, as evidenced by the higher number of homes up for sale and that this is great news for buyers who are getting more choice which increases the chance of securing that ideal purchase

He added: “Although there is more activity in the local housing market in October, homeowners should still ensure their properties are sensibly priced and proactively marketed by their estate agent. The opportunities are certainly there and with the right agent there is no reason why vendors should not achieve a quick sale at a good price.”
