Well, post budget the housing market feels a little different in that we are still seeing high demand from purchasers although, there is a decrease in interest from investment buyers. This slight dip in purchasers from investment buyers was expected due to the amount of property bought by this group in the first quarter of this year. Another sign that our market is still buoyant regarding investment in property is the report that Zoopla have recorded a 60% jump in re-mortgaging so people are either freeing up a little equity giving them the choice to purchase a second or third property.
House prices are steadily rising, reaching a new national high of over £300k. Locally in Hampton we are seeing three and four bedroom townhouses reach the 200k – 215k price bracket and four to five bedroom houses reach the 300k – 350k price bracket. In Peterborough itself, the market is healthy across the city centre and the suburbs, with both local people moving up the property ladder and those people currently living in the London suburbs/corridor looking to relocate to the city.
Chris Plummer, Relationship Manager at Tortoise says “Good quality housing of all sizes are selling well within our 12 week marketing plan, we are on average achieving 99% of asking prices and seeing multiple viewings on all properties within the city. ”
