During the third quarter of 2016 (July September) the firm's Aberdeen office experienced a 58% increase in the number of property sales compared to the previous quarter of the year and witnessed noticeable interest from those wishing to upsize by taking advantage of the great value for money property is currently presenting.
The number of houses brought to the market by the Aberdeen residential team also rose by 41% and viewings increased by 71% over the same period.
Hannah Christiansen, head of residential sales at CKD Galbraith's Aberdeen office, said:
We have continued to expand our reach across the region whilst simultaneously moving into more localised markets such as the popular area of Donside where we have now built an extremely strong reputation.
After a successful summer selling period and a string of under offer' signs going up in the Donside area the Aberdeen office received a surge in instructions and sellers approaching our experienced sales team about how best to market their houses. This has greatly increased our reputation and created a good level of buyer confidence with our firm.
Essentially we believe this localised expansion is a direct result of our firm offering an alternative marketing option for sellers in Aberdeenshire who previously weren't getting their homes noticed on crowded online property portals.
The company operates a network of regional offices located throughout the country and figures for the firm as a whole during the third quarter of 2016 illustrates its ability to market and sell high quality houses drawing buyers from across the UK and beyond.
