Contrary to the majority of opinions, the housing market, particularly in Chelmsford City is very strong. Since been given City status in honour of the Queens Diamond Jubilee combined with the fantastic transport links to London, Essex County Cricket ground, Highlands Park and large investment into the property and retail sector, Chelmsford City is fast becoming the place to be.
If the property comes to the market at the right price, in the right location and with a motivated vendor it is selling and achieving close to asking price. We, at Martin & Co have sold over 80% of our stock with 60% of those taking advantage of our Sales Subscription Service, saving them thousands on traditional Estate Agency fees. The market place is crying out for all property types but there is definitely a shortage of good quality three bedroom houses under £250,000 and two to three bedroom bungalows. The main areas of interest still seem to be Old Moulsham, Chelmer Village and Chancellor Park with first time buyers and investors seeing the biggest increase for us in new registrations. Mortgage rates are still at their lowest in years and more now than in the last 5 years are being agreed.
It really is a fantastic time to be selling and buying, trust in a local agent that is selling!!!!
