ACCORDING to Savills in Bell Street, Henley, current sentiment in conjunction with low availability of stock, as well as a general appetite to move to our area, has led the international real estate agency to achieve “record transaction levels” in the Â sub-£1.5 million market since the start of the year, writes Lucy Boon.
Katie Baldwin, an associate director at the agency, says: “Our transaction levels, year to date, are 19 per cent up on 2015, and an extraordinary 131 per cent up on 2011, when market sentiment was at an all-time low.
“While much of this increase in transaction levels can be attributed to wider economic factors and more confidence in the market, it is also down to team growth, with three out of six team members specifically dedicated to this particular sector of the marketplace.
“A shortage in availability of quality stock has created an environment where those who are serious about buying need to act quickly to avoid disappointment.”
