Shropshire On A Par With Land Registry House Price Growth

24/08/2017

Home values and transactions in Shropshire reflect a resilient residential market, according to one of the county’s leading estate agents.

Head of Sales at Balfours, Alistair Hilton, says the Land Registry’s recent June figures show the average residential property in England has an annual increase of 5.2%.

He explains: “This is on a par with our sales figures for the past 18 months and mirrors a market where people do want to buy and sell. The politics – which have been so topical during this period – have never been more than a discussion point and have had virtually no influence on final decisions.”

Whilst one property investment specialist highlights fierce competition in key northern cities such as Manchester and Liverpool, Alistair says Shrewsbury’s market has enjoyed a similar flurry this summer. “New to the market properties in Shrewsbury have seen strong competition, with multiple bidding and above asking pricesachieved in some instances.

“It is not a runaway market - and we would not want this - however there are buyers out there who know what they want and understand the value of making the right offer to secure a property, rather than prolonging the search.”

A market of regions, land registry data for Wales continues to show steadier annual growth at 3.6% per annum. “We have some wonderful properties on the border and in Wales, homes which reflect excellent value in terms of space and the quality of life.” If you would like to discuss your property with Alistair Hilton, call 01743 353511.
