At last !!!!!

By Charles Everritt

I can now report an improving market, we are finally seeing buyers limbering up and certainly there are offers coming in. Market conditions in London are also improving and we feel confident that we will start to see a greater level of activity as we move through the Autumn. The main question seems to be whether the government might reverse the stamp duty changes which have certainly impacted the market above £1 million and this also clearly effects buyers downsizing from above £ 1m into the £500,000 to £1 million bracket. That said the top end in Bath has turned a corner and we are extremely bullish about the rest of the year. Buyers will not be greeted with much choice as some vendors may well have decided to stay put until 2017. In are opinion there are some superb houses in Bath currently available and these are very much going to sell before Christmas.

Look forward to updating you in October
