09 Jan Buying a Property in Bath
Are you buying a property in Bath? Great! Just a few more reasons why it is indeed a very good place to live and play.
A brief background into the Bath market
Considering that Bath has remained more or less unchanged for the past 200 years or so, Bath certainly does know how to surprise. There has never been a better time when it comes to buying a property in Bath, especially if you are moving from London. This is mainly due to the fact that the price gap between the two cities have widened over the last few years.
Will you be getting your money’s worth? We certainly think so, considering the latest Land Registry figures indicating that the average cost of a residential property was £316,000, up nine per cent in the past year. Where other towns in the West Country have struggled, the city beloved of Jane Austen, and still with a strong tang of the Georgian era, is booming.
Our sources, who are predominantly local Estate agents have indicated that the the market for properties within the £600,000 to£2 million price bracket are particularly strong, although there is a shortage of competitively priced cheaper properties.
A majority of the buyers can be split into two groups. Those who are downsizing from the surrounding suburbs of the city and then those who are moving out of London.
