Buyers back with a bang at Sharman Quinney

Sharman Quinney is delighted to report a significant increase in sales figures across its seventeen Peterborough and Cambridgeshire branches this spring compared to the same period in 2012.

The selling agent is currently experiencing a seasonal surge in activity and has been so busy in the past few weeks that it has agreed 40 per cent more sales than at the same stage last year. Its local branches have also witnessed a healthy upturn in new instructions as buyers return to the property market with greater confidence in 2013.

The positive trend in the number of homes coming onto the market and being sold with Sharman Quinney in Peterborough and Cambridgeshire is especially pleasing news for would-be buyers and vendors looking to achieve results in the local area this year, says Managing Director Mike Sharman.

Mike says: “We have had a brilliant year so far at Sharman Quinney and our sales figures for April are testament to a very buoyant housing market at present. We have had numerous record-breaking months in many of our branches since the beginning of 2013 which have culminated in a fantastic April performance across the board.

“We have been taking on more properties, agreeing more sales and helping a wide range of customers since January and we are expecting to surpass last year’s figures in the months to come,” he continues.
