With Brexit still dominating the headlines and looking likely to do so for some time yet, it would be easy to overlook another story that has been in the press recently concerning the future of the HS2 high speed rail program. There is debate about whether to continue despite the projected overspend running into billions and arguments about whether it will deliver any real benefits once it is in place.
Whilst the outcome is unlikely to have a direct impact on us locally , and on our house prices, it does underline one of the things that make our area so desirable to buyers, namely how good our ‘connectivity’ is , in terms of our transport links and access to other parts of the country, and other parts of the world!
At S J Smith Estate Agents we are finding that properties with easy access to railway stations or the motorway network continue to outperform the market generally, and having recently agreed several sales on properties with prices well in excess of a million pounds to international buyers who want good access to Heathrow Airport, we understand how to maximize the value of a property for the benefit of the owners!
If you are considering a sale of your property or are already on the market unsold, please feel free to click here to contact S J Smith Estate Agents for a confidential discussion and find out how we can help.
