"More buyers have realised they don’t have the luxury of waiting until the weekend to decide which properties they want to request to view, and so they’re making sure they’ve signed up to find out first when a home comes up for sale.

“We’re hearing reports of some areas where properties are selling within a few days of being added to Rightmove, and the average time to find a buyer is the quickest we’ve ever recorded nationally. "But we also know there are thousands of local markets and some are moving more slowly than others, so as a seller you’ll want your property being seen by the biggest group of buyers possible, giving it the best chance of selling and achieving the best price.” Rob Kennedy, Managing Director of Philip James Kennedy in Didsbury village said: “The marketplace during 2021 has seen a surge in the Didsbury property market with record levels of sales and many properties generating multiple bids. "House prices have increased as a result and properties are selling and completing faster.
"During these unprecedented times the importance of ‘home’ has increased with many buyers wanting more space working from home; more space to relax and exercise, and many buyers wanting more outside space, easy access to a local park or larger garden. “Built within the backdrop of wealthy merchant mansion homes and exclusive conservation areas, Didsbury offers a wide variety of exclusive properties with early Victorian cottages; late Victorian terraces and traditional semis through to ‘Arts and Crafts’ detached family homes and futuristic apartment and townhouse developments. "Fashionable West Didsbury village consists of predominantly late Victorian terrace properties arranged around irrepressible Burton Road within family sized villas, mansion terraces, and sought after modern and converted luxury apartment developments. "Both villages are geographically small but have beautiful parks, outstanding educational establishments, specialist food shops, a well-established café culture, upmarket bars and award winning restaurants.”
