What an extraordinary
start to the year!
January is always an interesting
time of the year and often sets the scene for what is to come, this year has
broken all our previous records and then some – with 60% more viewings in January
this year than January 2014 and that was a pretty good year anyway.
So what does this mean for the
property market? Well, clearly buyers
still want to find their dream home but here is a challenge, there is still
less property on the market than there was back at the peak and with less
supply yet plenty of demand it does make for an interesting start to the year.
Yes, we are still seeing multiple
buyers interested in the same property.
Our theory when we have this multiple interest is to ensure we give
every buyer a fair opportunity to purchase the house they want, this will
invariably be dictated by price but rest assured, if this happens, we will
ensure everyone gets a fair opportunity to have their say.
We are also seeing a really strong
emotional commitment from buyers now – that may well be in part because buyers
are thinking much more of a long term move.
Many people are downsizing from something larger and once they find that
key house they will move heaven and earth to get it.
Due to continued growth, Victoria Jeffs Estate Agents are
currently looking to recruit two new Residential Sales Agents, primarily
based from our Stratford-upon-Avon office in the first instance with potential
to work in other geographical locations in the future. Both roles are
permanent full time positions.
You will be responsible for the acquisition of instructions,
the presentation of properties to the market and the subsequent management of
the sale of suitable properties in sufficient quantity to satisfy business
Qualification and Experience
We are ideally looking for energetic, enthusiastic and
dedicated sales professionals with at least 3 years' experience in a sales
agency environment, people who are able to contribute to the implementation of
the business strategy and profitability of the office. Proven sales and
communications experience is a must. Valuation experience is useful but
not a necessity.
