Surging demand for coastal properties
The south coast now boasts some of the UK’s top property hot spots, with increasing demand from buyers looking for holiday homes, retirement properties or even just a change of lifestyle.
In addition to strong local demand, we are also seeing a surge in interest from buyers in London and the Home Counties who are looking to escape to an idyllic coastal location – whether it be on the beachfront, harbour or riverside.
Our waterfront sales are exceeding all expectations and, in some cases, we have achieved well above the guide price. In one instance, we achieved £1,000 per square foot for a beachfront property – around 40% higher than the average price of similar properties in the area.
Properties on the waterfront, with sea views, beach access or a private pontoon, jetty or slipway, attract a premium that may increase the value from 30% to more than 100% in some cases. So, there has never been a better time to sell a waterfront property.
Whatever your requirements, we can provide specialist advice and support at every stage.
