Sheffield, Rotherham Best Rated Estate Agents as Voted by Home Sellers / Vendors

Housing-Market / Sheffield Mar 16, 2014 - 06:53 AM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Housing-Market

(Last Updated 2nd May 2014) Sheffield at anyone time has over 2,500 properties on the market with nearby Rotherham another 1,000 resulting in a large and highly active market with many estate agents of all shapes and sizes fighting for the highly lucrative sales fees and percentages of sales.


Home sellers bewildered at the amount of choice can be bedazzled by estate agent tips and tricks to hook them into contracts on the basis of lower fees, higher valuations and promises of promotional packages as they compete between one another for your business. Therefore the decision making process of home sellers can be skewed in the wrong direction as they can become influenced by marketing hype over substance or go with lowest priced service as both can end up proving to be costly time wasting mistakes.

Worst still are those home owners who think they can sell their own homes using a myriad of cheap online DIY services, a truly disastrous decision as if a home owner who has never sold a property themselves before will ever have more experience than even the worst of estate agents.

So the best source for the answer to who are the best estate agents in Sheffield (and surrounding area such as Rotherham) is to ask those who have already been through the process in which respect this article represents the views of both buyers and sellers experience of local estate agents by voting on the quality of service received.

Voting is very easy, all you need to do is pick the estate agent(s) that you have experience of and rate them from 1(poor) to 10 (great). - Max 1 vote per month per estate agent.

Voting Results : 16th March 2014 to 2nd May 2014 - Check back for regular updates.

Sheffield Best and Worst Areas to Live

As excerpted from the UK Housing Market Ebook:

The below map details which areas of Sheffield should be avoided and which areas should be favoured in terms of the best places to live. Obviously the amount of financing available will play an important factor in determining the choice of area's, but at a minimum the RED areas should be avoided as people moving to Sheffield, purchasing a property for their own residency in a Red area will soon come to regret their decision.

The large expanse of orange area's are as a consequence of the size of Sheffield's public sector and the private sector that directly relies on it, that continues to see deep cuts in local government spending, this also means that there is a continuing large supply of properties in these areas of Sheffield which acts to depress average house prices that masks booms taking places in pockets of the city and thus offers many opportunities towards the middle end of the property market.

Meanwhile prospective home buyers can expect a huge jump in financing requirements to purchase a property in the affluent areas of the city (Dark Green) which are situated in the the South West of the city as these areas will have experienced little in terms of the impact of the economic depression with the consequences and in terms of expected house prices is that just like many areas of London, these areas are already trading near their pre-crash levels as these are the areas that will be those that are in greatest NATIONAL demand, just as many parts of London are in great INTERNATIONAL demand (as high as 50% of properties in many areas of London are bought by foreign investors).

In summary, prospective home buyers should take notice of the fragmented nature of the city which can make a huge differences both in terms of the quality of life, school catchment etc. However, the best areas of the city can be found to be concentrated in the South West of the city as the affluent residents continue to price most local house hunters out of these areas, just as is the case for many areas of the UK. Furthermore, the most affluent area's of the city tend to have a buffer zone of up and coming areas that acts to further the gap in house prices between relatively short distances.

What this means is that whilst the pseudo-economists (journalists) that populate the mainstream media focus on average house price trends, instead the reality is of a highly fragmented and buffered market that results in areas of Sheffield that rival anything that can be seen in the South East of England in terms of house prices, which I am sure will come as a shock to many house hunters who tend to look at the academic statistics, the averages that will FAIL to give a true picture of Sheffield's housing market for instance a 4 bedroom detached house in S11 typically starts at £400k, whereas 2 or 3 miles distance a similar sized 4 bed would typically cost less than £200k.
