Why do you think Corsham still seems to be an attractive area for buyers?
Corsham Property values have dropped this past year according to statistics, but local estate agents claim the town in the Cotswolds is still a much in-demand area for buyers.
This month’s edition of the Bath Life magazine featured Corsham and its numerous charms: with its butterscotch coloured stone and rural expanses of green rolling hills, who could not be drawn to it?
Local estate agents Hunter French, who opened the Corsham branch of their estate agency in 2007, expressed their views on the vibrant town in the country setting.
“It’s a lovely area,” said John Robinson, one of the directors of Hunter French, “The thing is it’s only just down the road from Bath and yet has that village-y feel.”
Surveyors expect property values nationwide to fall in the approaching autumnal months. Good news for buyers but not for sellers. Are you trying to sell a house in Corsham or are looking to move into the area?
If a house on your street has recently been sold, find out on the Net House Prices website and get a rough estimate on the price of your own property.
The average asking price for Corsham properties fell by 15% this year, compared to last year according to one property database.
“It’s a nice combination of being close to civilisation with so much countryside surrounding it,” added Mr Robinson, “But I’m biased, as I like the area.”
Pop star Lily Allen purchased a six-bedroom property in the Cotswold area worth three million pounds, but are you still star-struck with our town (at least in a property sense)?
