Barmouth office summer open evening
Everyone at Sanderson estate agents would like to invite you to our Barmouth office open evening this Thursday June 6th between 5.30pm – 7.30pm. We are all looking forward to meeting customers and lots of local property industry experts who we work with and have volunteered to come along to meet and get together in a social and informal atmosphere.
Property Market update
The last few weekends have been the busiest we have had for months and although it's been cold but sunny weather the market seems to be feeling like we are out of winter and on the edge of Spring at last! <br /><br />Numerous properties unsold over winter, have seen a pick up, a surge in interest or gone sale agreed, whilst many new instructions have been sold subject to contract in a matter of days after hitting the market.<br /> <br />Several potential buyers that have been offering less than the asking price have ended up disappointed and lost out to higher bidders.<br /> <br />Consequently we now have only a relatively small amount of property left available and as well as there being a seasonal pick up in activity, the lack of supply of property coming on to the market is currently working to the advantage of some sellers.<br /> <br />We are now very keen to list more property on to our books to meet the spike in demand from buyers that happens over the Spring Bank holidays.
New Homes Spring Special
Wet weekends won't be so bad if you have just settled in to a comfy new home! There's nothing like the experience of moving in to a newly built home with everything totally up to date, unused and modern. No worries about an onward chain, no fears of a bad survey. Buy early from the developer and you can often even get your own choice of fixtures and fittings. On the whole, newly built homes in our area are few and far between but here's a selection to whet your appetite.
Our sales formula is working - Look at what we've sold already this year.
Don't believe anyone who tells you the market is slow. All the completions we've had this winter mean we have now freed up plenty of space on our register for more properties in every price range to meet the expected Easter surge in sales. More good property is wanted and in demand! Don't worry we're not swamped with unsaleable property so we can give your home the attention it needs. Keep checking our website for exciting new instructions. Extra press advertising is also booked in anticipation. Call us now to tell us if you want to get a move on.
New Properties coming on the market with Sanderson estate agents
What a week of great half term holiday weather for house hunting we're having. We love every single new property coming on to our books for one reason or another! Call us property tarts, but no house is the same and neither are our customers and that is exactly why we make such an effort to differentiate each property with a personalised description and try and give you a feel for what makes it so special. Please call us up and complain if you catch us using cliches!
Please call us now if you want to sell this Spring
2012 sales figures were up again for the 5th successive year at our Porthmadog branch and we generated a leap in sales levels at Barmouth too! We have already been putting together our first sales of 2013 are now getting all geared up for Spring. Most of our sales successfully exchanged in time for Christmas and early January completions have left us with plenty of capacity to take on new instructions in February.
Phew - it's finally quietened down!
Things have been busy right up until the last few days but the inevitable lull in activity is now finally noticable and with our own financial year ending this month we should soon see how 2012 has compared. Whilst there is no doubt that prices have come down and lots of sellers have had difficulty finding buyers it does seem to have been a fairly busy year and we are all hoping our sales figures total up well by comparision. Don't forget we are not open this Friday 30th November or Saturday 1st December due to staff development and our Christmas dinner.
More lettings wanted - lots of homes recently let and under our management
Our list of occupied and managed residential lettings is constantly growing right across the area we cover due to good demand from tenants. Our policy of careful referencing for all our managed properties leads to less future problems for landlords who end up with the likelyhood of having better quality tenants. We also provide a tenant find only service if you live locally and want to take care of other things yourself. You can be confident your property is in expert hands as Andrew and Alison are both qualified in residential property lettings and are members of the NAEA client money protection scheme. Keep an eye on our website for current availability
Autumn market has reached our expectations!
As hoped for, it's been a busy October for us. The half term holidays have been fruitfull and a good level of sales means 25% of the property we have on our books is now firmly sale agreed. We're also glad to have seen an increase in transactions over the last 6 months. Some buyers and sellers who have put things off for a year or two have been making their move. It doesn't suit some people to wait any longer and there is a wider perception that this economic situation is how things will be for a few more years yet. Surprisingly good looking deals with onward purchases all over England and Wales have also provided financial temptation and justification for moving.
Half Term Property Update
We're having a great Autumn - Just look at the variety of property we've got here for you! As well as a flurry of recent sales, October has brought us a late harvest of new properties to the market along with some tempting price reductions on others. Click on "more" for full details or regularly go to our main website for up to date availability. Our contact system is periodically refreshed automatically. To make sure you keep receiving our updates please 'phone us or call in to one of our offices so we know you are still interested.
Get ready for the autumn half term holidays - they start soon!
The winter may be on its way but we have had some beautiful weekend weather this month! The autumn colours are starting to peak and it's time to enjoy every minute of the afternoon and evening daylight before the clocks go back. This year the autumn half term school holidays are spread over 2 weeks from this Saturday 20th October right through to Sunday 4th November so the selling season is not over yet!
Latest Property Video Releases
If we've shot a video it's because we think the property is something special! These latest promotional films mean you don't even have to leave your own home to view what is on offer and if you like what you see give us a call to arrange an appointment to go and have a look for yourself. If you are selling and want a promotional video to help sell your own property it's another big reason to use Sanderson estate agents.
Property update - our latest instructions
Don't miss out! What a selection we've got here for you with some of the most recent properties that have come on to our books It's currently an excellent time for buyers who have the luxury of a fairly wide choice but as winter approaches, we expect the selection to start narrowing down as the current flurry of sales continues and the supply of homes coming on to the market reduces on the run up to Christmas. For sellers who want to move by Christmas - Talk to us now as it's time to make sure we do everything possible to take advantage of the reletively good market conditions that should continue during October. We don't want to add to your spam. If you are no longer moving please click on unsubscribe at the bottom of this e mail.
Property videos, new instructions and price reductions!

A break in the weather now means we have another batch of videos featuring the properties below to show you. Click on "more" below the property description to see a short film of the property.

Super sales period in September so far!!
It's great to have some good news about local house sales! September and October are our favourite months for sales anyway but whilst prices haven't been strong, the action started earlier than expected this year with things picking up before the summer holidays had even ended. Talk to us without delay if you want to get sold by Christmas. We reckon there is still a good 5 or 6 weeks left of these busy conditions so there's no time to waste! We don't want to add to your unwanted e-mail so if you are no longer buying, selling or renting let us know by replying to this e-mail and we will take you off our contact list. Enjoy a beautiful Autumn Andy Sanderson
Your special invitation to our autumn open evening
Well there’s no doubt this is another tough year for house sellers so we’d like to do something to keep everyone’s spirits up! As you will see on pages 16 and 17 of the Meirionnydd edition of the Cambrian News this week, we’re not sitting back and getting fed up. Despite the doom and gloom from the media, we’ve had an especially busy time over the last 2 weeks and we’d love to see you at our open evening this Wednesday. We would like to invite you to come and enjoy a buffet and drinks at our Porthmadog office open evening this Wednesday 5.30pm to 7.30pm. Please reply to this e mail just to let us know if you can pop in or not.
Reduced prices and owners who are keen to sell !
Here are a few pointers to some of the best buying opportunities we have at the moment. Realistically priced properties and vendors who are keen and well motivated to sell provide great opportunities for equally keen buyers who can go ahead quickly! Click on "more" at end of descriptions to see full details. Please contact us urgently if you are keen to move by Christmas - we can put you on our priority buyers list so you are notified first and give you some special help with your search. If you are no longer looking to buy please reply to this e mail and we can take you off our list - we do not wish to add to your spam.
Book your Bank Holiday viewings with plenty of notice now!
Just like the weather, our descriptions haven't dried up either but even though there're no predictions for a heatwave over the bank Holiday weekend, booking your viewings in advance will avoid frustration and give sellers a chance to arrange to be at home for you. The roads are bound to be extra busy so allow loads of extra travelling time to your appointments. Here's a few of the latest properties that have come on to our books. Please click on the photos for full details and check out our own website.
Exciting time ahead for buyers and sellers!
For sellers who want to move by Christmas the next couple of months will be make or break - call us now for suggestions on how to meet the deadline. For buyers there's going to be an exciting flurry of new properties coming on to the market after the school holidays but the best homes are always snapped up first and the good choice and steady supply starts to dry up as Winter approaches! We're glad to see that over last 2 months both our offices have been attracting a much larger share of property sales instructions than usual. We put a lot of this down to the significant number of vendors who have been unsuccesfully trying to sell through other agents that are swapping to us. Staggeringly, up to a third of our recent sales have been made on properties that our competitors have previously been unable to sell!
We're working hard to keep in touch with you!
Please let us know if you wish to keep receiving our newsletters or not - we don't want to add to your spam. Our mailing list is running in to thousands now and we can see it is getting widely read but any feedback would be greatly appreciated. The market is undoubtedly tricky for sellers but this is a great time to be buying and this time of year we are getting lots of approaches from visitors to our area. It's our most frantic period for general enquiries. Our newsletters mean we can keep in touch with all these prospective buyers even after their holidays and in the future.
Hurray it's feeling like summer at last!
The sun is out, there are swimmers in the sea and someone is even taking their ferret for a walk on a lead around barmouth! We also have a lovely summer crop of new instructions on our books. Lots of our sales have been going through in the last few weeks - Things are selling at Sandersons and we now have space for more properties on our books - Don't be left in the cold, contact us now if you want to be moved before Winter!
Sellers - There's no time to waste DON'T MISS THE SUMMER MARKET!
We want to hear from you now if you want to get moving! If you are on the market and not getting viewers, phone us now for advice. We will have selling suggestions for you according to your individual circumstances. The clock is ticking and the evenings are already getting shorter. Don't sit back and just hope because the next 3 months will whizz by - it's time to take the right action now if you want to move before the Winter!
Our sales formula is working!
We currently have buyers for over 25% of the properties we are dealing with right now. It's simple - In this challenging market, we are going all out to give your property the widest Promotion, the best Presentation and honest, well researched, carefully considered, valuation advice to achieve the best sale Price possible this summer. We're are selling at Sandersons! There's still time left to get your property on our books before The Queens Jubilee Bank Holiday but you better call us quick to get your video too!
Arrange your Bank Holiday viewings early!
We've tried to do our bit and wanted to let you know about a few special buying opportunities below. Here's a warning though - Lots of property owners are not contactable and are often out and about themselves at holiday time. Avoid the frustration, dissappointment and last minute stress by booking your viewing arrangements early. All is not lost even if our branches are closed - our out of office hours viewing call centre may still be able to help you make some appointments even over the Bank Holiday weekend itself on 01341 281508.
Call us now if you're keen to sell - It's been a busy start to the year!
Even with extra staffing we've had a busy start to 2012. The phones have been ringing and we're very pleased there seems to be a lot more activity than this time last year. Several recent new instructions have been getting viewers within days, leading to multiple offers and sale agreeds within weeks. We have hundreds of buyers out there waiting - It's a delicate balance but with our advice on presentation, imaginative marketing, great promotion, lots of enthusiasm and just the right asking price we have been attracting buyers like moths around a light bulb!
Property videos - enjoy a viewing without even leaving home
Most of these homes are just available or just reduced and all of them have one of our property videos just to make viewing extra easy for you! Now the Spring is here George our film producer is out and about busy shooting footage in the sunshine followed by lots of evening editing. We don't think there's any better way than a quality video to show a lovely home at its best to hundreds of buyers - If you are selling and think your home would also benefit from an audience like the ones below, call us now and you should still be in time to advertise before the next Bank Holiday. Click on "more" to view.
Easter holidays - More property needed!
It's been a busy run up to the holidays for us and with a good level of recent sales we are already looking for more properties to top up our register - but what a selection of homes we have got for you to look at here! Don't leave your viewing arrangements to the last minute (owners go out too!)There's also bound to be extra Bank Holiday traffic so allow plenty of extra travelling time. Browse www.sandersonestateagents.co.uk for all our properties.
Make hay while the sun shines!
Hurray for some upbeat news! The fantastic recent weather has been great news for our local housing market. Not only have we been getting a good flurry of new properties coming on to our books but the sunshine has also brought out house hunters a bit early! Visitors have been attracted by the temperatures, everywhere looks so beautiful and it's not difficult to appreciate what a great bit of countryside we all live in here. More properties are needed before Easter - call us now if you are thinking of selling.
New staff, office refurbishment, a holiday letting partnership and lots more property now needed!
New staff, office refurbishment, holiday lettings, increased advertising and lots more property now needed! It's all been a pretty exciting start to the year for Sanderson estate agents and we're raring to go! We hope you are enjoying our newsletters which are aimed at keeping you informed and provide you with a flavour of our personality but circulation is getting so big it's out of control! We'd like to hear your feedback but if you've decided not to move, already bought or want to be taken off our list just let us know or use the unsubscribe feature so we can save everyones time.
Cambrian coast local housing market bulletin - March 2012
At long last some upbeat news to report to sellers - We've been seeing some properties that didn't sell at all in 2011, already going sale agreed in 2012. Properties that have previously been on the market un-sold by other agents have also come on to our books and attracted offers and even gone sale agreed already this year! Sadly for some buyers, they have also been out bid on purchases they really wanted by offering too low to start with, so for a change things aren't looking as bleak as they were for some home sellers. It feels like the Winter is over at last. The comparative lack of snow has meant our local market seems to have been more active than the previous two very cold January and February periods. The weather has also meant more properties coming on to our books than expected and this has also given buyers some early opportunities before the busy Easter period. We've included a general property selection for you to look at but if you can't see appropriate property on the list please update your preferences and add the price range you are interested in. This e mail doesn't mean you are necessarily on our priority buyers notification list so if you're keen to buy over Easter or before, phone us with your current requirements and we can put you top of the list!
Frustrated you haven't sold yet? Keen to sell in 2012?
Well you are not be not alone - our market research has revealed numerous local properties have now been on the market for over 2 years! But the real news is that the market may not be as slow as you think! If you're tired of sitting back waiting and want to get a move on NOW, our own focused approach to marketing, personal attention and efforts to provide regular vendor contact with market updates and advice will maximise the chances of getting you moved - See the selection of recent sale agreeds below and call us on 01341 281599 or 01766 512498.
Winter Update from Sanderson estate agents
Winter really feels like it's arrived and North Wales mountain peaks have been dusted with snow but the last few weeks have been busy for us, especially given the recent weather and economic doom and gloom broadcast on the TV, radio and in the newspapers. I have given up listening to Radio 4 news! On the contrary to running scared though, there is a distinct feeling of reassurance among homebuyers that property is a relatively safe haven for their cash and that they get much more tangiable benefits than saving money elsewhere.
More Properties Needed but Here Are Some Coastal Crackers!!
We've been busy working hard over summer and recent sales and lots of completions are leaving us with plenty of space on our office displays for more new business. If you still want to sell before Christmas call us asap! There's some very exciting deals around and here's a few of the most recent properties to come on to our books as well as some of the latest price reductions on offer.
Get here this weekend - we're ready for a heatwave!

This edition also highlights some of the pro-active marketing ideas Sanderson estate agents are implementing.
When is the best time to move?
It's a question we're asked time and time again and without a doubt Easter is always when the market along the West Wales Coast never fails to kick off! Some of our vendors are incredulous that we are already phoning them up to confirm easter viewing appointments. It's the time of year when the evenings are light again, the weather is warmer and visitors to this area will be arriving back in big numbers. If you are thinking of selling before next Winter then now is the time for you to call us up. The keenest buyers are already scouring our website and doing their market research before viewing this Easter holidays!
More Properties Wanted!
Across our branch network, last month saw new sales agreed equal the number of new properties coming on to the market. This leaves many keen buyers still frustrated by a perceived lack of choice and still waiting for the "right property" to come up at the "right price". Our buyers mailing list currently has hundreds of people waiting for us to contact them with suitable new properties coming on to the market. Call your local Sanderson's office if you would like us to help get you moving.
Half Term Holidays Mark a Pick up in Market Activity!
At last it feels like Spring is coming, evenings are brightening up and buyers from all over Wales and England seem to have come out of hibernation to start viewing this week! Similarly we have spoken to a lot more sellers who are preparing to bring their properties on to the market....welcome news for many house hunters who have had very few new properties to choose from over the winter.
Will you be moving this year?
If you are moving this year we really want to keep in touch with you, whether you are buying, selling or have decided to rent out your property. This months edition highlights some of the extra efforts we have already started to implement to help buyers and sellers get on the move in 2011.
