Fine & Country launches a new office in York
International estate agency Fine & Country has opened a new office situated in the historic walled city of York in North Yorkshire. Fine & Country York is joining the network of estate agents in over 300 locations worldwide.
Frances Bowling, Manager of Fine & Country York, says, “I am very excited to join the Fine & Country network and establish the brand in York. The office will be focusing on the luxury property market and providing a bespoke estate agency experience to sellers in York, Malton and Pickering. Our serviced office is situated opposite Betty’s Tea rooms. We are looking to expand and take on more agents as our market share grows.”
She adds that named as the ‘Best Place to Live in Britain’ by The Sunday Times, the property market in York has consistently seen an increase in demand over the past few years. “There are a number of aspects that have attracted people to the historically significant area, such as the iconic period buildings, universities, trendy cafes and nightlife, and stunning scenery to name a few. In terms of transport connections, York is also one of the country’s best-connected cities, with express trains running every half an hour, every day to London King’s Cross.”
Bowling continues that there is also a good mix of properties in York which are available to buyers from all walks of life. She adds that the current average value of a property in York is around £290,460, with flats selling for approximately £205,640 and a terraced house for £244,641. “There has been a lot of re-development and new build apartments built to accommodate the influx of people wanting to relocate to the area. More recently we have had a lot of young professionals moving to York due to work opportunities, as well as a large number of students who attend the University of York and York St John University,” she notes. “On the upper end of the market, we have seen a trend of homeowners renovating and upgrading their properties.”
David Lindley, CEO of Fine & Country, said: “We are very excited about the brand’s establishment in York and are eager to see the business flourish in the growing market. The combination of Frances’ industry experience and a firm grasp of the local market, with Fine & Country’s premium marketing services, will be a winning combination that will produce amazing results and offer an exceptional estate agency experience.”
Recognising that luxury properties require a more tailored marketing approach and higher quality materials; the new office will take advantage of Fine & Country’s award-winning marketing service. The office is particularly keen to take advantage of the company’s global referral network to boost their business. We are delighted to bring to market our new spectacular properties in Scarborough and Filey, North Yorkshire, valued at £3,000,000 and £690,000 and most recently successfully finding a buyer for the Filey property. We have a range of qualified buyers actively searching for properties from £500,000 upwards.
