It’s revealed that in the first quarter of 2009 it has agreed well over £30 million pounds worth of new sales which is on a par with 2007 - a record year for the company.
Indeed, Lillicrap Chilcott says its figures show that it is currently selling a house almost every single day with 61 new sales agreed over the first 63 working days of this year at an average sale price of just under £500,000.
And it says it is not just the top end of the property market that is holding its own. Of the 61 sales the company has agreed since the beginning of January 2009, 68% have been on properties costing less than £500,000 with a further 25% of sales instructed on homes between £500,000 and £750,000.
Ian Lillicrap and Andrew Chilcott believe the outlook for the coming months is extremely positive as with interest base rates expected to remain low for some considerable time, the market will become increasingly buoyant.
Andrew Chilcott said: “For anyone looking to buy a new home or investment property now is a very sensible time to make a move. The choice of available homes is still wide and there are some fantastic properties at extremely attractive prices.”
“Equally, for anyone looking to sell, now is the time to start the wheels turning as there a lot of people seeking to put their savings into bricks and mortar over the coming few months.”
Lillicrap Chilcott is based in Truro and was voted Cornwall Estate Agent of the Year at the Daily Mail UK Property Awards last October.
