In recent articles on the Stratford-upon-Avon property market, I have been talking a lot about house prices over the last 12 months and 5 years in Stratford-upon-Avon. When it comes to newspapers talking about the property market, the headline most people look at is what is happening to house prices. However, as 2 in 3 […]

With grocery, energy and other household prices/costs rising and hitting everyone’s back pocket, inflation (rising prices) may feel like an unimportant issue when it comes to the cost of keeping a roof over your head.    Yet nothing could be further from the truth for many Stratford-upon-Avon homeowners and Stratford-upon-Avon landlords.   Because inflation over the long-term is bad for the economy, the normal weapon […]

The stamp duty tax holiday is over, furlough finished at the end of September, unemployment is due to rise and inflation is rife … is this the end of the post lockdown Stratford-upon-Avon property boom?  Surely, we are heading for house price correction?

It said that fewer OAP homeowners are planning to downsize from their large family homes after the pandemic made them realise the actual value of their local community and space. Historically, […]

Should you sell or should you buy in this most interesting Stratford-upon-Avon property market? I have calculated that at least 50 Stratford-upon-Avon house sellers have rented a home to break their house chain in the last 12 months, although at a cost as they face paying many thousands of pounds in rent. There are a […]

The bungalow is a building that has represented a more leisurely, gentler way of life since the early 1900’s. Bungalows have been sold as an aspiration for those about to retire, saving them the annoyance of having to climb stairs. With an ageing population, one would think they would be building more bungalows, yet nothing […]

June 2021 was the busiest month ever for UK estate agents, home removal companies and conveyancers since monthly records began, as HMRC logged 213,120 residential transactions in June, a jump of more than 216% nationally on the same month last year (when the housing market had just reopened after the initial lockdown). The cause of […]

Investing in property has historically been a sound investment, yet alternative investments (like Cryptocurrency) have been gaining traction over the last five years. So, should we all ditch buying our own home and buy Bitcoin? Cryptocurrency with such names as Bitcoin and Ethereum are being bandied about as the new investment vehicle everyone should be […]
