Our quick round-up of the local property scene . . .

Local property update

There's talk of a slow down in the market and that's certainly true of the South East, however; outside London, at least 9 of the major cities in England & Wales set new peak prices in February, led by Bristol with 8.4% annual growth, with cities across England and Wales showing strong growth (YM House Price Index).

Rightmove reported March was the busiest month ever on their website with over 142 million visits, showing that interest in property remains robust.

Who's saying what?

House prices in Bristol are continuing to rise at a far greater rate than the UK and South West averages, according to new research from global property experts, JLL.

Whilst a more moderate and stable housing market is predicted for the UK, the rise of Bristol’s residential property values shows little sign of slowing. It is expected to continue to experience higher than average house price and rental growth over the next 5 years at 4% in 2018 and 3% in 2019 on wards, compared with a UK average of 2.5%.
