Mayfair Town & Country have noticed that more and more people are opting to sell their property in Bristol and move to Weston-super-Mare. Why is this? Well, despite Bristol having recently been voted the best place to live in the UK by the Daily Mail, property prices in the city have soared over the years and many now want more for their money.
With much investment being put in to Weston with its recently regenerated seafront and work well underway for the new developments at Dolphin Square and the Italian Gardens, Weston is becoming increasingly popular for city commuters, families, and those simply looking for a better pace of life. With such a diverse style of properties and areas available, property prices in Weston and its surrounding villages are much lower than their equivalent in the city, yet buyers still benefit from excellent public transport links and a close vicinity to the M5 - an attractive draw for commuters.
To put this into perspective, Mayfair recently sold Southridge Heights, an attractive detached bungalow with panoramic views in Weston-super-Mare, for £460,000, whereas a similar property in Abbots Leigh, Woodlands Bungalow, is currently on the market through Mayfair’s Clifton branch at a princely £825,000.
St Pauls Road, a luxury 5-bedroom semi-detached Victorian house in Weston-super-Mare, is sale agreed at £475,000, whilst a 2-bed Victorian semi in BS8, Bristol is on the market with an asking price of £675,000.
Similarly, a 4-bedroom detached house on the popular Weston hillside in Ringwood Grove recently sold for £360,000, whereas a 4-bed detached property in Abbots Leigh has had a sale agreed at £875,000.
With so much more for your money being gained across the region whether buyers choose a popular village like Hutton, or a busier more transient area like Weston itself - either way, many more city dwellers are noticing that their money works better for them in North Somerset if they are looking for a change of pace and environment.
Choosing an estate agent who will proactively put your property in front of buyers is important, and with a network of multiple offices across the South West including an office in Clifton, Bristol, Mayfair are able to tap into this growing market of Bristol movers by marketing properties from both Weston-super-Mare and Bristol.
