Partner Claire Kendall, whose family has been selling houses in the Wakefield area for over 55 years, said: “We have never made so many appointments for people looking at mortgages as we have in the last three weeks.”

She added: “People have been waiting to put their homes on the market and we have started to see an influx of properties coming to market, with renewed confidence fuelled by mortgage rate predictions.”

Those predictions are giving parents more of an incentive to downsize from larger homes to help their children get on the first rung of the property ladder.

Buy-to-let market rates are also reviving, with some deals offering as low as 4% and a need derived by a shortage of available properties for tenants to choose from.

Claire, who runs Richard Kendall Estate Agent with her fellow partner and brother Simon, explains: “There is quite positive news out there and we have come into a busier marketplace in January. Buyers are serious but also vendors are also being realistic with their house prices. There is a lot of confidence, with people accepting less for their properties in order to move on with their plans.”

Agreed sales up by up to 147% and 23% rise in viewings

By the end of their financial year Q1 in December, Richard Kendall Estate Agent had sold 20% more properties gross, and 25% more NET than the same period in the previous year. Ossett branch agreed sales were up by a staggering 147% NET.

There is also a huge rise in activity on viewings which are up by 23% on this time last year, which will no doubt be converted into offer and inevitably sales for their clients. This again displays the growing confidence in the Wakefield residential market.

The combined local property knowledge at family-run Richard Kendall Estate Agent is shared with their clients across Wakefield, Normanton, Pontefract, Castleford, Horbury and Ossett. With branches scattered across these areas, makes them easily accessible to tap into their expertise.

The independent firm, which was founded by their father Richard, offers a full range of services from trusted valuations and professional mortgage advice, from SMH Finance LLP, to conveyancing, sales and rentals to help your move run smoothly.

What Our Customers Say...

Selling my house through Richard Kendall was a great move. Amanda at the Pontefract office was there for me every step of the way. I couldn’t have asked for a better person to handle my sale. She did a fantastic job with the communication between me and the buyer and always pushed the solicitors for updates. My sale wasn’t as straight forward as any of us had hoped but Amanda didn’t let that phase her. Her professional and friendly support continued though-out the whole process. I’d highly recommend Richard Kendall. Laura 10/06/2024
Joanne and Donna was amazing from start to finish if any enquiries I had and they both kept me up date with the process anytime something changed, would highly recommend these two if your buying through Richard Kendall. Jack 10/06/2024
A very smooth experience from valuation to completion with advice given to achieve the best price. I was kept informed at every stage of the very smooth process by Shereen and Kathryn Graham 10/06/2024
I sold my house and purchased a new one through Richard Kendall between Jan and May this year. The service was very good on both sides, but I must compliment Mandy, who managed my purchase. Throughout the whole process, which had its tricky moments, Mandy was polite, professional and - perhaps most importantly for me - a source of constant positivity and calm reassurance. She was communicative, proactive and provided a fantastic bridge to the vendor. Thank you Mandy, you are a star! Rachel 10/06/2024
It’s been a first time experienced for myself in the rental of a new place via Richard Kendall’s at a local branch at Horbury in Wakefield, which was quite a process due to all the checks required by a third party. Jessica Judd who I dealt with was very professional, polite, efficient, friendly and helpful during this process. I was really pleased that Jessica also pushed to get everything into place before I went away on holiday, taking away any anxiety about having a property to move into on my return to the UK. Jessica is a real credit to her company and would definitely use the services of Richard Kendall again in the future. Dean 10/06/2024

We recently sold our family property and Suzy was amazing from start to finish! She really helped eliminate the stress of selling by keeping us updated throughout the whole process. Suzy was professional and personable. I would highly recommend Richard Kendall’s to anyone buying / selling and especially Suzy. Thank you so much. Beth 03/06/2024
