LATEST OFFICIAL HOUSE PRICES FOR CORNWALL
The figures for Cornwall back up what we have been saying for some time:
That there is a fragile recovery going on in the local market with sensibly priced, well marketed homes selling quickly.
* Choose a good agent with local market knowledge who backs up their valuation with hard written evidence of actual sale prices, not asking prices
* Talk to your agent about why your home hasn’t sold yet, they should be sending you weekly reports about interest levels and discussing solutions with you
* Have a realistic expectation of sale times. The median time on the market for ALL agents in the area is currently 26 weeks. Yes, 6 months! (Data from Rightmove)
