It’s Sensible to Know What’s Going On in the World of Buying and Selling Houses When Selling Your House.


The national average price for selling a house is now £333,371 (Augist 2021).  So we do a quick shifty round the North West to see what’s available around that price and seek out the cheapest buys in the region.  Knowing what’s out there and prices is a crucial aspect of buying and selling houses or when selling your house.  Because prices and sales have dropped for larger houses, our buying and selling houses search is based on up to four bedrooms.  The properties we are looking at are also out of larger towns and cities in line with current trends.

We’re using On the Market but you could search with Zoopla Rightmove or contact local agents.
