Happy New Year! From all the team at William Gleave, our warmest regards to all of our customers across Flintshire and North Wales. 2019 has been a fantastic year for us here at William Gleave, and we can’t wait to see what 2020 brings for our customers and our team.

With the new year finally here, we thought we would take a minute to look back on the year we’ve had, so in this market update, we’ll have a look at the property market for the whole of 2019 and see what this can tell us about the year ahead as well!

No matter how the property market is faring when you decide to make your next step in the property market, having an estate agent who’ll be honest with you and give you all the information you need to make the right decision for you and your property is vital. At Willliam Gleave Estate Agents, we’re passionate about helping our customers do what’s right for them, no matter what the local market has to offer.

With that in mind, let’s take a look at the year in review, and see what happened in the Flintshire property market in 2019.

In Flintshire in 2019, we saw several interesting trends for both buyers and sellers, including the number of buyers in the market vs. the number of sellers. Flintshire, including Buckley, Broughton, Mold, Deeside, Hawarden, Mynydd Isa and the surrounding areas had a high proportion of buyers compared to other nearby areas. This made life that little bit easier for sellers in 2019, as a higher number of buyers generally means quicker sales and better yields for vendors.

For buyers, things still look pretty good! With values in Flintshire a fair bit lower than the national average, homes in Flintshire remain affordable, even as values are continuing to rise. This all indicates that now is a great time to buy a home in this area.

For customers in Buckley, Flintshire and North Wales, the team at William Gleave can help you take the next big step in your property journey. To find out more about our team and our approach to the property market in your area, contact William Gleave Estate Agents today.

Thanks for reading, the team at William Gleave.
