London gets Essex moving
Stamp Duty reforms have caused London buyers to look at the value to be had in the Home Counties and especially Essex as it already has the best access into the City. That will improve even further as we benefit from the ‘Crossrail effect’.
Essex’s beautiful countryside and excellent commuter links are definitely a pull for potential purchasers currently living in or closer to London and its suburbs especially in the country homes market.
For example we have sold many properties in Great Dunmow to purchasers from London who have never considered the area before. Although the internet’s coverage is vast, if the purchaser never knew of an area they would not search for it. Thanks to the software available at our branches the cross marketing of properties is possible. We don’t just rely on local coverage to sell properties; we extend the marketing across our extensive network of branches across Essex and into Greater London to ensure we offer the best service to our clients. After all the more people that see it, the more chance of securing the best price possible.
Our innovative marketing team are obviously vital within a changing market and it is no surprise they have recently won the coveted “Best marketing in the East of England” at the UK Property Awards. Equally our unique lifestyle magazines, extensive network of 14 offices and strong London link throughout the county, has ensured our available portfolio offers a strong selection of Country Homes across all price brackets with the £600,000 to £900,000 sector remaining the most buoyant.
So if you’re looking for your own ‘Escape to the Country’ here is a selection of those currently available from our Country Homes Division
