Looking to move this year?


Typically, we see the market quieten a little at this time of year, as many are enjoying the Summer holiday season.  We have seen far more people staying in the Country to enjoy their holidays, and many spending much more time at home.

For many, home has become so much more important in the last 18 months.  A haven, a place to relax in, a place to spend your leisure time, a place to rest and sleep and a place to entertain and enjoy good company, a place to connect… and dare I say it… a place to work!  Every element of our lives has, at some point, happened at home.

So many people talked about the property market being “propped up” by the Stamp Duty changes, whilst this has given a “sense of urgency” to get completions through within certain time periods, people don’t just seem to “want” to move.  Getting themselves into a position where they are able to move and fund their perfect home, has become a priority.

We have seen a rise in interest in:-

  • rural locations;
  • village locations;
  • property with land;
  • larger gardens;
  • beautiful finishes;
  • building plots or development opportunities and
  • additional reception rooms.

The trends are fascinating us!

We have completed 220 property sales so far this year, with a total value of well above £110 million!  We continue to handle property transactions, ranging from small parcels of land at below £50,000 through to multi-million pound agricultural rural and residential estates.

When taking on new instructions, we ask ourselves if this property is “AB”?  For us, it is not just about the value, it is about our values and where we feel our strengths lie, in order that we can ensure that our clients are getting the very best advice.

Armitstead Barnett are here to help you.  Please do contact us to see how we can offer you the best advice to assist your move.
