Now is a good time to sell in Fife

Now is a good time to sell property in Fife, Scotland, according to property consultancy Galbraith.

Between July and September 2019 there were 36% more viewings than the same period last year.

The number of properties brought to market through Galbraith in Fife was up 6% year-on-year.

Towns in Fife include Dunfermline (pictured), Kirkcaldy and Glenrothes.

George Lorimer, who leads the sales and lettings team for Fife, said: “The Fife market remains remarkably solid with encouraging activity at all levels. There are plenty buyers around waiting for fresh stock to come to market.

“As was the case at the start of 2019 Brexit uncertainly is causing some vendors to hesitate about going to market but the flipside to this is that it is creating an excellent opportunity for those vendors prepared to crack on.”

“The run up to Christmas offers a fantastic opportunity to market your property. People are very keen to purchase their new property before Christmas with a view to living in it in the New Year and starting a fresh.

“Buyers have instant access to new listings online and can do their research in the holiday period when they have some down time and don’t necessarily need to physically view a property to allow for an initial discussion about it.”
