A CITY centre estate agent has seen a marked increase in the sales of apartments in February, agreeing over 10 sales and putting nine on the market in just under four weeks.

FHP Living has noticed an upturn in sales of properties in NG1 this month, ranging from £75,000 to £200,000.

Popular areas and developments for buyers have been Waterfront Plaza, Stoney Street, Fletcher Gate, Weekday Cross, the Habitat and New Court.

Property consultant at FHP Living Oliver Marshall said he was impressed with the number of sales they have secured during such a short period. He pointed to the fact that there are an increasing number of vendors with rental properties looking to sell as there is increased buyer confidence.

He said: “We’re thrilled with the number of apartments we’ve sold and put on the market this month.

“We’re marketing some really nice apartments in Park Gate and King’s Court for example, which are receiving a lot of interest already, having only been on the market for a few days.

“We have also sold a considerable amount – at a rate of two or three per week – in really desirable buildings like Weekday Cross and Waterfront Plaza.

“Nottingham has a fantastic selection of diverse apartments, from affordable to luxury properties, and investors, first time buyers, students and professionals have their pick of the best at the moment.

“I would advise anyone thinking of putting a rental property on the market for sale to do so now, as we are achieving good prices and interest in relatively short time periods.”

He added: “Owners interested in having their property valued should get in touch with my team and we will arrange for a visit the same day.”
