House price growth in Bath

Market data just released by the Land Registry will be welcomed by those who have been uncertain as to market direction in the Bath area. Property prices grew by 7%* in 2012 year on year, with volume sales moving up by around 3.5% on 2011. Simon Lord, Director of Winkworth’s Bath Office, believes that these figures highlight the enduring confidence in the Bath market. He comments: “These figures show that the Bath market continues to hold its forward momentum through a tough economic climate. Demand is robust and supply is limited. The enduring confidence in our region clearly contrasts with the more fragile conditions elsewhere. Bath is one of the bright lights outside London and this, to a great extent, is due to the success of our schools and universities, but it is also a prime destination for those who enjoy sport, have a passion for the Arts and food, or simply love the wonderful landscapes. Bath is a great place to live and work, and now is certainly a good time to move. I would be delighted to provide details of this latest report on request and advise anyone requiring confidential guidance on selling, buying or letting in the Bath region this year.” *BA1/BA2 combined Source acknowledgement: [Information] produced by Land Registry. © Crown copyright material is reproduced with the permission of Land Registry under delegated authority from the Controller of HMSO.
