Dunstable a Great Place to Live and Work
There are many agents to choose from, so how do you pick the one that will help you sell your home. At Deakin-White, we believe it is important to trust an agent with local knowledge. The location of a home and the community it is part of are key factors in property transactions, and it is best to have a professional who understands the local community on your side.
When it comes to property pricing, there is a lot of information available online. We can tell you that for March of 2018, Zoopla listed the average price for property in Dunstable as £295,888 and on Rightmove, the average price of property was listed as 266,602 for Dunstable. The fact that there are two different figures for an area leaves you with the issue of knowing which expert to follow, but knowing local prices isn’t enough.
Know why local property prices are what they are
It is good to know what the average price is as this gives you a starting point for selling or buying a home, but there is a need to know why the average property is as it is. At Deakin-White, we understand the local property market, and this goes beyond the figures written down in black and white. We know that certain streets are in greater demand than others, and we know the improvements that homeowners have made to improve the value of their home.
It may be that a row of houses looks the same from the outside, but home improvement work or how homes have been cared for impact on the value of property. Average property prices for a street or area won’t tell you this information but with our expertise in the area, we know how to price homes when you sell and if you are looking to buy, we know what you are likely to receive for your budget.
Many factors shape property prices
There are many factors that impact on the property market. If you focus on what the media says, you would be forgiven for thinking that Brexit was the driving force behind property prices in Britain these days, but that is only a single factor. Just as important, if not more important, is the lack of supply of housing, of local schools, of transport links, of shopping facilities, of open spaces and parks, of crime figures and many other factors that influence how people think about an area and the price of property.
Given the amount of information that is available in property listings, including images or even video content, most prospective buyers have a good impression of what a home can offer even before they attend. The viewing stage is important, and it is vital to make a positive impression at this stage, but often at Deakin-White, our role is to sell the local neighbourhood.
This is where our knowledge and expertise of Dunstable and surrounding areas makes all the difference. There are many features and benefits in the local area that are genuine selling points, or which will appeal to many prospective buyers. We are on hand to help a seller present their home in the best manner, but we also promote the local area with all the sponsorship and community work we do at Deakin-White, and this is often a key factor when selling property.
