Property and Land Outlook for Chesterfield 2019 10th December 2018

As Managing Director of one of Chesterfield's leading estate agents, I am able to offer advice on local market conditions to a number of sources, including house builders, the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and The Bank Of England.

Each month I compile a snapshot of the local market, which the RICS then use within a nationwide analysis of the housing market.

With so many people wondering about our economic outlook, I thought it might be a good idea to share some of my thoughts with you.

Wilkins Vardy performed well in November, with more sales in the Chesterfield region (S40 to S45) than any other agent.

We also undertook more market appraisals than in November last year.

As a town, 189 properties sold, with 292 properties coming up for sale. Far from the doom and gloom that you would hear on the news most nights.

The major house builders are still developing land all around Chesterfield, and this does not seem to be slowing.

In terms of my predictions for the RICS, I feel house prices are likely to increase between 0% and 2.5% per year over the next five years.

With regards to the house buying and selling process, it is our belief at Wilkins Vardy that excellent customer service remains at the very heart of everything we do. Experienced and professional people ensure that your transaction is managed in the best possible way. We pride ourselves on having the capacity and skill sets to deal with any problem that arises during a transaction, meaning our fall through rate has remained low during the last 12 months.

We look forward to a busy January, and an active 2019. If you would like your home valuing, or wish to buy in 2019, please feel free to give us a call, we’re open 7 days of the week.
