in the know

Is now a good time to buy in the local property market..

It’s not a good time – it’s a great time! The amount of excitement we’re picking up in the office every day is quite something. We’ve got bags of experience between us and have seen the market at its best and its worst, but the way positive sentiment has grown so quickly over such a short period is remarkable.

As you may well be aware, the housing market moves in cycles. After a period of consistent house price growth, things start to cool and transaction levels fall. Then comes a point when buyers feel like the market has ‘hit the bottom’ and pile back in trying to take full advantage of the next period of price growth. Prices always rise in the long term, and during the last housing cycle (between 2009 and 2017) prices rose by 39.8 per cent and now sit at £250,400.
