We are the no1 agency in Holmfirth with 145% more instructions than our nearest competitor

We gained 16 more instructions than our nearest competitor this month, a 145% lead. We are also selling properties at a rate of knots. Since January we have sold a third of all their properties available. Our recent surge in new instructions has seen the Holme Valley area awash with the new Wm Sykes ’for sale’ and ‘to let’ and signs in the distinctive 'Sykes blue' colours. 

According to Rightmove, house prices in Holmfirth are up by 11% up on the year before and are now similar to 2010 prices. Property prices are growing faster than many areas of the UK, with UK house prices rising on average by 1.6% in April.

We are not just out-performing our competitors but the whole market. Rightmove say the number of newly marketed properties so far in 2015 is down 4% from the same period last year. Wm Sykes’ performance is streets ahead.

Rob Dixon, Partner at Wm Sykes said, “Over the past couple of months we have been busier than ever. Spring usually sees more people considering placing their homes up for sale but this month has surpassed any of our expectations and properties are selling quickly.”
