With the development of new houses increasing in order to try and meet the housing demand, more and more developments are being planned and carried out. However, despite the demand for housing, there is still a need for individuals who work in sales and marketing in order to increase the awareness about the new developments and ultimately get the new properties sold.
The areas that have been emphasised by One Way as in need of sales and marketing specialists are Bedfordshire, Inverness and the Highlands, Cornwall, Hampshire and Birmingham.
