The Rush to Buy: City workers fuel Essex property market

22 May 2014

Demand for properties in Essex has continued to soar with our figures showing that we currently have 7,000 buyers on our books looking for their dream home. Essex has traditionally been popular with city workers, especially towns like Shenfield which offers a commute of just 27 minutes into Liverpool Street Station.  However, the arrival of bonus season, the positive vibe that business is finally picking up and the fact that wages are finally increasing quicker than inflation will have boosted the city commuter’s spending confidence.

Essex is becoming more accessible and retail friendly. Crossrail will dramatically improve the transport links into Central London and there is also plenty of regeneration taking place in our commuter towns. This increased investment has led to more people considering a move to Essex.

With properties on the market, such as this six bedroom detached house in Hutton Mount, it is easy to see why people are keen to secure their own piece of Essex. Hutton Mount is a leafy and exclusive private estate just a stone’s throw from Shenfield station, where trains to Liverpool Street take just 27 minutes and Crossrail will allow residents to travel through central London and beyond. The area also benefits from excellent schools, making it a popular choice with families. For more details on the property please contact our Shenfield team on 01277 888620.

Set within a private mews development with a smart driveway, garage and spacious accommodation, we are expecting this well-presented four bedroom property in Cranham Gardens, Upminster to be a big hit. It’s easily accessible to the town centre, close to a range of excellent schools and a short walk to the station.  On top of this, it is comes with an attractive garden and gated entry, providing extra security. Please call the team in Upminster on 01708 874390.

With around 7000 buyers currently on our books looking for a property and Spring being traditionally the busiest time of the year in the property market, there are many disappointed buyers still looking for homes.

In fact at the moment, we have 12 buyers for every property on the market, so if you are looking to sell your house, now would be a good time to get in touch with us.
