Reflecting on 2023 – Property Matters with Walker Wylie Estate Agents
As we approach the end of 2023, we wanted to take the opportunity to look back and reflect on what has been an unpredictable and changeable time in the property market. We also want to take the time to say thank you to all our clients and supporters, we are so honoured to be a part of your home moving journey and appreciate each one of you who trust us to deliver for you.
Across the year there have been many high points. In our community we had a fantastic time at the Walker Wylie West End Tennis Tournament in October, this annual event gets better every year, and we love supporting an event that brings the West End together.
We’ve had excellent sales for clients throughout the year and built up some really strong relationships. One recent sale that stands out is that of a client whose buyer fell through at the last minute:
I cannot recommend Walker Wylie enough. They were so helpful in the recent sale of my flat. The buyer (no fault of Walker Wylie) didn’t pay up on the agreed date of entry. After it was clear they were not going to buy the property, Allan and his colleagues sprang into action. they contacted all other buyers and secured the sale for us. I can’t imagine any other estate agents doing such a fine job and being so damn friendly and helpful. They arranged viewings efficiently and were always easy to work with. 100% recommend. Please don’t use anyone else to sell your home 🙂 Mr Cheskin
This year has seen lots of uncertainty as the Bank of England Base Rate rose and as result mortgage interest rates followed. A positive was the fall in inflation rates seen across the year. A changeable economic climate can influence buyer confidence, but as we have reported throughout this year, the West End is a robust market and has weathered any challenges well. We took each sale on a case-by-case basis, and consistently saw our clients achieve sales above asking price.
As the year draws towards its end, we would like to wish our clients, friends, and colleagues a happy and peaceful end to 2023. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch for more information on how we can help you to move home.
