In a Nutshell

Quality family homes do not change hands frequently in these sought after bays, so there is a lot of competition between buyers - and indeed between agents - for listings in the area.

Leasehold properties and infill mono-clad homes may be less popular and harder to negotiate a deal on and will require specialist sales expertise.

The Bays attract buyer interest at a variety of levels, from bargain hunters to the seriously well-heeled, many of whom might search for months, or longer, to find the perfect place. Choosing a local listing agent who has an established buyer database is likely to pay dividends for would-be sellers looking to maximise their selling price.
