Despite ongoing uncertainty for many in 2021, the housing market in our region has continued to grow with demand outweighing supply; the popularity of rural Northumberland and our stunning coastline has produced unprecedented interest with a number of properties selling between 10% and 15% above the guide price.
With a new version of normality resuming for many, we will continue to see clients entering a period of reflection, re-evaluating lifestyle options and how to spend precious down time with family and friends away from the stresses of the everyday. Many of you have already made the change to move to the home you always dreamed of, in a location you never thought possible, perhaps have been able to finally purchase your very own retreat, or simply invest in our region as a superb location for the ever more popular ‘staycation.’
Here at our Alnwick office of Sanderson Young, we have been delighted to see that there is continued strength in our housing market with high levels of proceedable buyers registered, waiting for homes to come to the market. Our experienced sales team have continued to work with both vendors and purchasers to provide professional advice and support ensuring their ideal outcome with as little stress as possible. With a career in estate agency that spans almost 30 years, I have seen many changes in the housing market, however none have been as exceptional as 2020/21. We remain positive for the future of the market in our region and I would urge all clients, old and new, to contact myself personally to discuss individual moving needs.
