  • Post-lockdown market comment

“There is huge interest in the Cotswolds, particularly from city dwellers looking for rural properties - everything from quaint cottages, village houses and country homes, especially if there is a bit of space outside and there’s the ability to work from home with fast broadband,” says Sam Butler of Butler Sherborn, the Cotswolds property specialist.

“Prices in the country house market have already been readjusted downwards by some 15% - 20% over the last couple of years due to Brexit, the 2019 election and the rise in Stamp Duty, so I don’t think it’s realistic to expect them to soften a lot further.  As evidence, premium, ‘best in class’ properties are already selling quickly and at 5% above guide price.

“We have completed 600 viewings since access to property was opened-up post-lockdown, up 90% on the same time last year, so with strong demand, limited stock levels and sensible pricing, we are really busy yet keen to avoid disappointed buyers.

“Some of these new buyers are understandably looking for perfection but risk missing an opportunity to buy by being over cautious and wanting to view everything available.  Our advice is to focus on what you need and can afford, and then make a quick decision before the house you want has been sold.

“With 35 years’ experience of the Cotswold property market, I can honestly say there has never been a better time to buy.  While I appreciate that deciding to move to the country is a big decision, don’t miss out on what you’re looking for by taking too long about it,” adds Sam.
