Benwell Daykin 1st Birthday Offers

It has been quite a year for Benwell Daykin! Following our successful launch in January 2020, we found ourselves somewhat tested, time and time again. Firstly, by a huge leak in our office wall, followed by the first national lockdown and finally by the Ruddington High Street flooding. But, through it all, we continue to trade and have been encouraged by how warmly we have been received by the Ruddington community. As we unfortunately enter another national ‘lockdown’, I’m delighted to say that the property industry remains open under the following…

However, we are seeing a huge increase in enquiries for property in the village and the surrounding areas. But why is this? The freeze on stamp duty is certainly playing its part, with more and more families taking the opportunity…

The Property Market is Booming!

Following unprecedented times, the Nottinghamshire property market currently finds itself in somewhat of a boom says Benwell Daykin. Many predicted we would experience a dip in house prices with fewer sales and purchases following the Coronavirus lockdown. In fact, the opposite has happened! Demand for a new home is currently outstripping supply. Viewing numbers have increased on each available property and with more buyers brings more offers.  High competition means property prices are driven up, as buyers compete with each other to secure their dream home. In July 2020, Rightmove…
