‘Homes in right place at right price al­ways sell’

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - East Kent Property - - HOMESNEWS -

A few weeks of un­cer­tainty within the hous­ing in­dus­try was felt im­me­di­ately af­ter the EU ref­er­en­dum out­come, but op­ti­mism is pre­vail­ing with the hous­ing mar­ket con­tin­u­ing to do well.

De­mand is re­main­ing high and es­tate agents are com­ment­ing that ac­tiv­ity is sim­i­lar if not bet­ter than the same time last year.

The hous­ing por­tal, Right­move, re­cently re­ported that buyer in­ter­est was in line with pre­vi­ous years and in­quiry lev­els are con­sis­tent with the same pe­riod in 2014.

News re­ports also told us that house­build­ing shares have risen, build­ing con­fi­dence and putting minds at ease.

This is re­flected in the re­cent con­struc­tion buy­ers re­port that recorded a re­cov­ery in Au­gust com­pared to July.

Sim­i­larly, the res­i­den­tial mar­ket sur­vey by the Royal In­sti­tu­tion of Char­tered Sur­vey­ors (RICS) re­leased ear­lier this month re­ported that house prices are re­gain­ing mo­men­tum, with sales hold­ing steady af­ter four suc­ces­sive monthly falls.

For the first time since April it also pre­dicted both the short and long term prices would rise. This is ex­cel­lent news for house­builders like us.

The con­stant im­bal­ance be­tween the quan­tity of prop­er­ties avail­able ver­sus the large num­ber of buy­ers means that the house­build­ing in­dus­try will likely re­main con­sis­tently buoy­ant, en­dur­ing a lit­tle fluc­tu­a­tion here and there when it comes to big po­lit­i­cal and eco­nomic dis­tur­bances, but on the whole re­main­ing con­sis­tent.

At Wedge­wood Homes, we are a per­fect ex­am­ple of hous­ing suc­cess af­ter the ref­er­en­dum. We re­ceived a great deal of in­ter­est in our Longview de­vel­op­ment in Boughton-un­der-Blean, and re­cently sold the last two re­main­ing homes.

It goes to show that what­ever the mar­ket cli­mate, in­quiries will con­tinue and there will al­ways be a need for new homes. If they are good qual­ity homes, built in great lo­ca­tions and at the right price, there is no doubt they will sell.

Wedge­wood Homes has homes avail­able at The Wil­lows in Ch­est­field. For in­for­ma­tion ring 01732 824744
