Leading local estate agents Blundells has opened a new sales and lettings office on Ecclesall Road.
The move takes the total number of Blundells branches across Sheffield and North Derbyshire up to 14.
Peter Lee, Lettings Director at Blundells, said: “We are delighted to be beginning the process of expanding the Blundells brand across both the sales and lettings markets.
“The rental market in Sheffield is still booming. We are continuing to see an increase in demand from tenants for rental accommodation - specifically in the city centre - with properties being snapped up in an average of three days with up to five tenants vying for each available property, which highlights the appetite.
“The key focus for this particular branch will remain the rental market, with the office in a prime spot on Sheffield’s upmarket Ecclesall Road and in the heart of a thriving rental market of landlords, tenants and students providing a strong footfall.
“To now have the opportunity to bring this under the Blundells brand will only be of benefit to customers as we look to continue the ethos built by Spencers lettings but also enhance what is provided with the expertise Blundells has to offer.”
“Our new branch is a positive step for the market in Sheffield and moving forward we hope to build on this development to offer a stronger Blundells rental presence at a local level.”
The expansion follows the acquisition of Blundells by Countrywide, the UK’s largest estate agency and property services group in August, joining Countrywide’s network of 1,300 offices and 46 leading estate agency and lettings brands.
