Professionals annual Xtra

Shrewsbury’s professionals were given a snapshot of the potential consequences of a tumultuous year of politics for property and landowners in the county. The annual Balfours Xtra seminar attracted some 70 professionals, from accountants to lawyers and bankers, at the Mytton and Mermaid, near Shrewsbury recently (November 28).

Take home messages included: Over the last 12 months the average increase in Shropshire’s house prices are performing at a highly sustainable 5%, according to town sales manager, Alistair Hilton. And interest rates at an historic low and well worth taking advantage of according to Balfours partner Rory Galliers; though he cautioned inflation could kick in as Brexit and the fiscal future unfold.

Chair of the event and Balfours partner David Groves compared the political and economic climate to conditions witnessed in David Attenborough’s Planet Earth II, saying: “The moral is to be as sure footed as the mountain goats and, like the flying lizards, have a backup plan.”
