Short Supply In Mapperley Park Sees Homes Selling Within Weeks

12th December, 2015, by

More homes are selling now than are coming to the market, especially in the realm of 4 bedroom properties where demand is at the highest for Mapperley Park, leaving a line of prospective purchasers waiting in the wings.

55b Mapperley Road was no different, with 4 double bedrooms, roof terrace and large shared garden, this spacious apartment received a substantial amount of interest meaning FHP Living conducted 4 viewings within the first week of bringing it to the market and agreed a sale in just 10 days. Such is the demand for family homes that another 4 bedroom property on Zulla Road was similarly sold in just 2 weeks by FHP Living and completed last month.

The schools in the area are a key contributing factor, meaning parents don’t have to compromise on a desirable city location for quality schools. The Mapperley Park ‘Haydn Primary School’ has just been rated outstanding by Ofsted and the ‘Carrington Primary and Nursery School’ has just achieved a 100% pass rate across all areas of their key stage 2 assessments.

Neil Scott of FHP Living comments:

“Mapperley Park has that idyllic secluded feel whilst being just minutes from the many amenities of Nottingham city centre so it’s no surprise that it has such an established family reputation.

 We currently have a huge amount of people on our books looking to move into Mapperley Park, but seriously low levels of supply, so as soon as a home comes onto the market we already have purchasers lined up, meaning we’re achieving quick sales at impressive prices. Considering that this time of year usually sees slowed activity, the fast completion rates are truly a testament to how effective our methods are, and how strong the market is.

 Christmas is a prime time to bring a property to the market — research from Rightmove has shown that around 1 million visitors were searching the site on Christmas Day, most likely in preparation to make the move in the New Year, so it’s best to prepare now. We encourage anyone thinking of selling to get in contact for a free market appraisal.”
