What crisis? Cornish agency says offers on empty and new properties still taking place

first_img“While buying and selling property has rarely been more difficult, we are still negotiating new sales, and taking on new property,” says Josephine Ashby of John Bray and Partners in Rock, Cornwall.“Last week we agreed a sale on a property with a guide of £275,000. It was empty, recently refurbished, with interiors designed by Nicola O’Mara. A local buyer viewed the video walk through, and entered into competitive bidding to secure the property above the guide price.Launch to ‘agreed sale’ happened in just two days.“Another recent deal involved a brand-new property in North Cornwall. One buyer had seen the house, but the other hadn’t managed to visit prior to lockdown. They decided to proceed on the basis of a video walkthrough and the sale is progressing.“Managing sales can be tricky, but everyone’s finding ways to accommodate the uncertainty. On one sale, the buyers are paying a reduced deposit, completion is delayed until next year with the option to bring it forward if possible, the buyer is picking up the vendor’s mortgage payments in the interim.“Where both buyer and seller are committed to a transaction, there is more trust. It’s difficult to be entirely black and white, buyers and sellers strike agreements that aren’t always possible to make legally binding. As agents we highlight the weakness of these arrangements, but it’s heartening to see deals going through on a virtual handshake, adhering to the spirit rather than the detail of an agreement.Look into the future“Video walk-throughs are becoming commonplace. Where property is vacant we produce videos and serious buyers are often happy to buy without visiting the property. We also use virtual staging for vacant properties. Our web traffic is up 50% since the lockdown, 80% are new visitors. Telephone calls are dramatically reduced, but buyers and sellers who call are very serious. We have time to spend talking everything through in great detail.“We are having to manage deals that were struck pre-lockdown. In one example exchange of contracts took place last year, with completion arranged for next week. Clearly the vendors can’t vacate the property and the buyers can’t move in – all parties have to come together to make arrangements that are as satisfactory as possible.”Tell us about your great deals during the lockdown – [email protected] more about virtual viewings.  April 23, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Sign of the times? Estate agency duo quit high street after 25 years in same branch

first_imgHome » News » Agencies & People » Sign of the times? Estate agency duo quit high street after 25 years in same branch previous nextAgencies & PeopleSign of the times? Estate agency duo quit high street after 25 years in same branchLeicestershire firm Andrew Granger & Co says it no longer sees the point in maintaining a traditional branch when most of their marketing is online.Nigel Lewis13th October 202001,974 Views A long-established Leicestershire estate agency duo has quit the high street after 25 years to move to purpose-built offices.Originally planned for Spring this year, Covid-19 meant that the move was temporarily put on hold.Andrew Granger & Co founders, David Woodfield and Rupert Harrison (pictured, above), have left their Loughborough branch which they say is part of the general industry move towards online marketing, as well as a desire for better visitor car parking, but is now particularly timely as high streets around the UK struggle to lure back shoppers.Woodfield explains that the way the agency works has gradually evolved, while technological changes now make it possible to work from anywhere.He says, “It’s an exciting change and while we’ll still very much welcome visitors to our new premises – appointment only for the time being – the move also builds on the online marketing way of selling properties, together with the personal contact with clients from the fresh new base.”Harrison adds that it felt like the right time to find a more modern office with better parking for the 30-year-old firm, which also has branches in Leicester and Market Harborough.“The three departments that operate from the Loughborough office – estate agency, lettings and rural – will now combine in an open plan setting and we’re all very much looking forward to this way of working once we are all office based again, rather than the majority of us currently working from home,” says Harrison.Andrew Granger & Co covers residential estate agency and lettings, commercial property, planning and development services, rural agency and professional services.Pictures: (top) Woodfield and Harrison at the launch of their branch 25 years ago and (right) outside their new offices.Read more about agents eschewing the high street.David Woodfield rupert harrison high street agents Andrew Granger & Co October 13, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

2016 Ag Forecast

first_imgGeorgia’s economy will be on the rise in 2016, fueled by population growth, resurgence of the housing market and major projects across the state, including two new professional sports stadiums planned for metro Atlanta. Georgians can also expect to continue to pay less for a gallon of milk, and for meat producers, exports look encouraging for beef and pork.Experts from the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences reported these and other economic predictions during the 2016 Georgia Ag Forecast event held last Thursday, Jan. 21, in Carrollton, Georgia. The Georgia Ag Forecast seminar series continued on Monday, Jan. 25, in Bainbridge, Georgia, and Tuesday, Jan. 26, in Tifton, Georgia. The two remaining sessions will be in Alma, Georgia, on Wednesday, Jan. 27, and Macon, Georgia, on Friday, Jan. 29.The UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, UGA Center for Agribusiness and Economic Development, Georgia Farm Bureau, Georgia Department of Agriculture and Georgia Agribusiness Council present the seminars each year.CottonA weak demand for cotton is contributing to prices hovering around 63 cents per pound, according to UGA cotton economist Don Shurley. A drop in demand has occurred over the past 10 years, and it doesn’t appear that will change in 2016.It was reported in December 2015 that U.S. cotton exports for the 2015 crop year are expected to be 10.2 million bales, the lowest level since 2000. Fewer exports have contributed to the decrease in demand in recent years.Despite prices that are not adding up to farmers’ wishes, Shurley expects U.S. and Georgia acreage to increase next year and, if weather cooperates, production that’s higher in 2016 compared to 2015. With the challenges facing Georgia’s cotton producers, Shurley offered words of advice: “Be patient and wait for 68 to 70 cents,” he said.Cotton acreage in the U.S. dropped to 8.56 million acres last year, down 22.5 percent from the previous year and the lowest acreage since 1983.PeanutsPeanut acreage in Georgia and the U.S. increased significantly in 2015. U.S. acreage was up 20 percent, and Georgia acreage was up 31 percent, or 785,000 acres. The crop of Georgia’s farmers excelled, yielding an average of 4,470 pounds per acre, the second highest total over the past several years.However, an ominous outlook exists for Georgia peanut producers. Due to low prices for corn and cotton, peanut acreage is not expected to drop off significantly from last year’s total, despite the lack of storage space and the need to rotate peanuts with a different crop at least every three years in order to manage pest pressure. An increase in supply results in lower prices for producers.CornOverall corn production acreage was slightly down in 2015, but the U.S. still had the largest harvest on record, according to UGA Center for Agribusiness and Economic Development Director Kent Wolfe. “With gas consumption down, the corn-for-ethanol market will remain stable, but corn feed demand from the meat industry will increase,” he said.The price is currently below $4 per bushel, but agricultural economists predict that anything close to $4.25 per bushel will be a win for Georgia farmers.SoybeansGeorgia acreage sown in soybeans will rise by 8 percent this year, while U.S. acreage will decrease by 1 percent, according to Wolfe. “China is the largest importer of U.S. soybeans in the world, and their economy is slowing,” Wolfe said. “We expect soybean prices to decrease slightly.”BeefThe new year will be a good one for Georgia meat producers, and red meat production should increase by 4.3 percent, chicken production by 1.8 percent and pork production by 1.6 percent.“Japan was the No. 1 importer of our beef, but now Australia exports more to Japan than we do,” Wolfe said. “Mexico’s economy is improving, so we hope to increase our exports there. The good news is that developing countries are beginning to upgrade their diets and demand more protein.”PoultryA number of countries, including China and Mexico, currently have bans on U.S. poultry as a result of the first case of avian influenza last year, Wolfe said. “That cost us significantly in the export market,” he said. “Our exports are now in limbo due to avian influenza, but we will see an increase in production of broilers due to demand in the U.S.”The price that farmers receive for broiler chickens is expected to decrease by 4 to 5 percent in 2016, he said.PorkA 4-percent increase in pork exports is expected as more live and processed pigs are exported to Canada and exports to Mexico stay strong.DairyWolfe anticipates 2016 milk prices to “mimic” 2015 prices. “Milk prices went way, way up in 2014, but we will probably see the lowest milk prices we have seen in six years this year,” he said. “Hopefully, folks in the dairy industry will make a little bit of money this year.”ForestryThe drive to become paperless and the increased use of technology have driven down the demand for paper in the U.S. The demand for pellets, which are produced in the South, remains high. Timber production, especially pine grade, is expected to stay high due to recent housing starts, Wolfe said.HoneybeesThe number of beekeepers across the nation is on the rise, as is the demand for queens and colonies. “Bees are in demand to replace colonies that have been lost to colony collapse,” he said. “And, in Georgia, we are shipping a lot of bees to California to pollinate the almond trees.”WheatThe number of U.S. acres devoted to wheat has trended downward since the early 1990s, according to Wolfe. “The world supply of wheat is rising, so U.S. prices are lower,” he said.For a complete look at the 2014 Farm Gate Value report for Georgia, visit www.caes.uga.edu/center/caed.last_img read more

Unemployment rate jumps half point to 5.7 percent

first_imgThe Vermont Department of Labor announced today that the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for November 2008 was 5.7 percent, up five-tenths of a point from the revised October rate and up 1.9 points from a year ago.”The nation’s economic slowdown is showing up in more sectors of Vermont’s labor market” said Patricia Moulton Powden, Commissioner of the Vermont Department of Labor. “Bright spots remain in Education & Health services as well as Professional & Business services which continue to show annual growth.”Job GrowthBefore seasonal adjustment, Total Non-Farm (TNF) jobs fell by 2,500 or -0.8% from October to November. Most of this decline is expected as we transition into the winter and holiday period. However, annual TNF job losses increased to -1,950 or -0.6%. The largest monthly seasonal declines were observed in Leisure & Hospitality, (-1,750 or -5.4%), Construction (-950 or -5.6%) Professional & Business services, (-450 or -2.0%) and Manufacturing, (-300 or -0.9%). Only Education & Health services, (+100 or 0.2%) and the Government sector, (+150 or 0.3%) showed month to month gains. On an annual basis Education & Healthcare, (+900 or 1.6%) and Professional & Business services, (+150 or 0.7%) are the only sectors showing significant job growth. The Manufacturing and Construction sectors have contracted by 1,050 and 1,200 jobs respectively over the year.When seasonally adjusted, November job levels declined by 600 or -0.2% over October and by 1,800 or -0.6% from November of 2007. Education & Health services, (+100 jobs), Leisure & Hospitality, (+ 400 jobs) and Total Government, (+200 jobs) were the only major employment sectors to show any seasonally adjusted monthly job growth.Employment GrowthVermont’s unemployment rate grew to 5.7 percent in November as a result of a sharp increase in the number of unemployed (+1,697 to 20,200) and a decrease in employment (-918 to 336,800). Vermont’s observed November seasonally adjusted unemployment levels and rate were statistically significant and greater than October values, but employment and total labor force values were not. For comparison purposes, the US seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for November was 6.7 percent, up two-tenths of a point from October 2008. Unemployment rates for Vermont’s 17 labor market areas ranged from 3.2 percent in Hartford to 7.4 percent in Newport. Local labor market area unemployment rates are not seasonally adjusted. For comparison, the November unadjusted unemployment rate for Vermont was 5.5 percent, up three-tenths of a point from October 2008 and up 2 points from a year ago.last_img read more
