NATIONAL property firm Strutt & Parker has revealed some impressive figures following its National Open House Day initiative which took place on Saturday, September 28. Initial offers have totalled £65m with still more coming in, suggesting that the autumn market is more buoyant than in recent years.
This was the 10th time the agency, which has an office in Pangbourne, has held a National Open House Day and it was a record breaking event. There were more properties taking part, more visitors looking at the homes and the most offers ever received — more than 100 individual bids resulted from the day.
A total of 740 Strutt & Parker properties nationwide opened their doors to buyers during the day without any need for specific appointments. Once registered, those buyers were able to visit as many houses as they liked at any time between 10am and 4pm. This ensured a relaxed viewing experience which buyers found enjoyable. A spokesman said that in the less formal atmosphere house hunters tend to look at properties that they previously had not considered.
