Property for sale in Bath continues to rise in popularity

Bath estate agents, including Winkworth, have always known the city was a very special place to live but now a new property report confirms that houses for sale in Bath are hugely desirable, with their values outperforming the rest of the country. One property source conducted research into house prices over a six year period and found there was a rise in average property prices unique to spa towns, while prices in the rest of the country actually fell. At the end of 2013, house prices in spa towns were 3.5% higher when compared to the start of 2008. Comparatively, the average property price across the UK was 6.7% lower during the same period. Bath's performance was astonishing, finishing the second best spa town in the UK for property price elevation, just behind Tunbridge Wells. Property for sale in Bath was up 15.5% at the end of 2013, illustrating that Bath enjoys an appeal of its own and is not influenced by the wider property market's peaks and troughs. Bath has bucked the national property trend, as illustrated above, and the momentum is continuing. Figures from Rightmove suggest that during the last year, sold prices in the city were up 6%. It certainly rings true for Winkworth Bath estate agents, who have achieved great results for their clients, as well as successfully selling houses for sale in Somerset and Wiltshire. Although the historical draw were the therapeutic waters, today people flock to spa towns because of the associated legacy. In Bath that means the beautiful Bath stone buildings that surround our office and the attractive city centre, which is a thriving hub for residents and visitors. Our houses for sale in Bath have three main audiences: families moving from London and Home Counties, drawn by the first class reputation of the schools and Universities in Bath; retired or semi-retired buyers ‘downsizing’ from a large family home in the rural villages in the region; and investment buyers looking to have a foothold in the Georgian city as a second home, perhaps as a stepping stone to a complete relocation. Bath’s popularity among property buyers is driven by the amazing quality of life and cultural diversity; there is a wealth of culinary, musical and literary festivals to choose from. Unlike some other spa towns, Bath is still a place to come and enjoy the warm waters, with the Thermae Spa and the Roman Baths must-see attractions. The city is also a centre of excellence in sport, with many Olympians and professional sports people based here for training. Spa towns are stepped in history and bear all the hallmarks of gentrification and investment. We know our colleagues over in Winkworth Tunbridge Wells have seen a similar demand for property, and our first-hand experience paints a vivid picture of property sales success in Bath. With waiting lists of buyers, it's a great time for anyone thinking of selling in Bath and across Somerset and Wiltshire. Don’t hesitate to get in touch, Winkworth Bath estate agents are happy to provide you with a free property valuation.
