Every area in the UK is different, boasting unique traits which set it apart from everywhere else and particular characteristics that draw in potential buyers. This is why, if you’re selling a property, you want the sale to be managed by someone who understands the facets of your local area.
Would-be buyers will have questions not just about your property, but its location, too. Having a knowledgeable expert at the helm will help maximise your sale, which is why many online estate agents now recruit local specialists.
Bristol is one of the most vibrant cities in the country – a significant driver for its property market. Housing stock is generally low but demand is high, meaning prices in the city are rising faster than almost anywhere else, including London. The capital saw annual growth of 5.6% in February 2015, while Bristol saw 8%.
Prices are also increasing, by an average 15.8% at the end of 2016. Properties in the city centre rose 6.6%, while those in leafy Stoke Bishop saw the biggest increase of 9.7%, followed by student-friendly Redland (8.5%) and affluent Clifton (8.4%).
Tucked away in the south-west, Bristol boasts easy access to transport links (and has its own airport), and is close to both the coast and rolling Mendip Hills. Two universities keep the city youthful, while a thriving media scene continues to attract talent and enterprise away from the capital. It’s a truly unique city with much to offer, so whether you’re selling a grand townhouse in Cliftonwood, a cosy starter home in Bedminster or a waterfront apartment in Hotwells, you need to make sure your agent is up to speed with the city’s many attractive features.
