Charlie HiggsVP Most Wanted – Our Top Selling Properties

By Charlie Higgs – Owner of Village Properties

Despite the undoubted difficulties we all face with the increase in the cost of living, fuel prices and recent increases in interest rates. The local property market across our offices in the Tilehurst and Twyford areas of reading remains very active, and to date, is largely unaffected by the more general economic uncertainty.

Looking further afield, at the property market nationally, I read with interest in the latest ‘House Price Index’ from property portal Rightmove, which confirms, despite the negative media speculation, that the average asking price of properties coming on to the market has increased for the fourth consecutive month to a new all-time record of £367.501 (nationally), representing a 2.1% increase on the month.

The house price index also shows that asking prices are now £55,000 higher than pre-pandemic prices…

Talking Property

The local property market is a common talking point, it’s an often hotly debated after-dinner conversation for many people. It’s a very British thing to discuss how much your home is worth and looking to see what neighbouring homes are selling for. Even those not necessarily looking to buy or sell in the near future.

With the continued sombre media speculation on the current state of the UK property market, I’m increasingly asked what types of properties are selling well and what is likely to attract high buyer demand?

This is not an easy question, as almost any property can fit into the bracket, price is often the key and setting the price as high as possible doesn’t always achieve the best results. Below are some examples of properties that we’ve recently sold, that have attracted high buyer demand.
