Land registry figures show that, after a slight fall last quater the average house price in Brighton is up 0.4% from quarter 1 for 2011. However, these figures do not seem to be reflected in what agents are experiencing. Many estate agents in Brighton are reporting that Vendors have an unreleastic expectation of what their properties are worth meaning that properties are being marketed at unachievable prices. Many properties are therefore sitting on the agents books for long periods of time with very little interest. The rental market, however, is doing extremely well with there being a shortage of properties currently available. Many agents are desparate for studio, one and two bedrooms flats Many Vendors and Landlords underestimate the importance of the first week of marketing a new property and the significance of getting the price right. The amount of clicks for additional information on a property is approximately 70% higher with the amount decreasing week by week. it is therefore vital to get the price right in the first week so as not to miss any potential buyers/ tenants.
