As politicians on all sides continue to debate the state of the country's finances and many real people are still feeling the pinch, the property market is definitely back on the move, particularly in our little corner of the country.

As house prices continue to rise and buyers outnumber sellers, leading Brighton and Hove estate agents Baron Estates are living proof that the property market at least is on the up. Opening their new office on Western Road in Hove last weekend, manager Danny Ross talks about their experience as the market changes.

He said: “The new office reflects growing demand for property in the area. We are opening with a full sales and lettings team to complement the existing team at our Seven Dials office. As well as a definite increase in local movers, we are seeing a rise in the number of buyers looking to move to the coast from London and an increase in second home and investment buyers expanding their portfolios, including international buyers.”

To celebrate the opening of the new office and in support of Rockinghorse Children's Charity, for six weeks from April 2, Baron Estates are offering new customers who instruct them to sell their property 0% commission on the sale. That could be a saving of £4,500. In return Danny and the team are asking for the home seller to make a donation of at least £500 to Rockinghorse, on completion of their sale.

“We're proud to support Rockinghorse who are an excellent charity in our city, I have had first-hand experience on how the money they raise can really make a difference. We hope to raise significant funds for them,” said Danny.

Baron Estates has been an established name in the residential and commercial property market in Brighton and Hove for more than ten years now. As a local independent agent they have excellent local knowledge and experience to help buyers, sellers, renters and landlords. Between the existing office in Dyke Road, the new office in Western Road, their associate office in Mayfair, central London and a strong presence on Zoopla and Rightmove, they are well placed to support the Brighton & Hove and wider communities and promote their customers properties to a very big audience.

“What makes us stand out?” said Danny. That's simple, the quality of service we provide and the professionalism and enthusiasm with which we deliver it. Every member of the Baron Estates team is passionate about what we do, it's a prerequisite for working here. So is having great local knowledge and boundless energy, it takes time and effort to buy or sell a property and we don't sit back and wait for it to happen. We work hard to make every sale, purchase, let and lease move forward as quickly, efficiently and stress-free as possible for our customers.”
