Time stands still for no man

Murmurings from London ….. We feel that over the last 8 to 12 months London would-be movers to Bath have been a bit on hold, given the much slower and lower market for their properties.

Many buyers from London that we talk to seem to feel that they are taking a hit on their properties in town, but don’t feel prices in Bath are reflecting that correction. The truth is they aren’t really and that in the main part there is a simple supply and demand factor which is keeping prices where they are in Bath. We believe a number of buyers from London (who have been holding off moving to Bath in the hope prices will improve in their favour) will now make the move in 2018. This will bolster demand (be it modestly), particularly in the bracket north of £1,000,000. The demand against stock ratio is so finely tuned in Bath that if you had a further 30 purchasers actively buying in this bracket in central Bath, this alone would stimulate the market significantly. The fact is that London is predicted to remain slow for certainly the rest of this year and probably next year and, frankly, if you are a young family looking to move to Bath for schools and lifestyle reasons, you are not likely to put this relentlessly on hold; at some point there will be a coming to terms that perhaps your property isn’t worth quite as much as it used to be and you want to just get on with life………. Time stands stills for no man!
