I was please to read that Gloucester house prices are up 4% on where they were a year ago and are 10% higher than 2016.

Online property site Rightmove has published data this month covering house prices in Gloucester and the immediate surrounding areas and their figures make for interesting reading.

Most of the properties sold in Gloucester over the last year were semi-detached houses and had an average price of £220,774. Terraced house sales prices averaged £176,453 and for detached properties it was £322,280.

That gave Gloucester an average house sale price of £219,732. This compares with £224,434 in Barnwood, £251,306 in Longlevens and £243,737 in Abbeymead.

So, in the past year, Gloucester house prices have risen by 4% and they are up 10% from 2016 when the average sales price was £199,123.

Covid -19 Lockdown Update

We hope you are all staying well and safe in these very confusing times.

We are very pleased to say that with the impending second lockdown restrictions we are able to stay open and can fully function.  It just goes to show how important to the Government and the economy the residential property market is.

It is not yet confirmed as to whether our branches will be open to the public, but we can be contacted by telephone or email. 

In Summary this means

  • Buyers, sellers and tenants will continue to be able to move.
  • Removal firms, although busy are able to operate.
  • We can arrange valuations and do viewings on properties (subject to strict PPE being in place)
  • Surveyors and valuers for mortgage purposes will continue to work.

In the meantime, we will continue to follow the covid-19 safety guidelines:

  • Face coverings to be worn on all viewings.
  • Hand sanistiser to be used before entering a property.
  • Avoid touching any surfaces.
  • Viewing time is limited to 15 minutes inside the property.
  • No more than two households inside the property at any one time. This includes the agent accompanying.
  • No children permitted at viewings unless they are young enough to be carried. (Children are likely to touch surfaces).

This is good news for the property market and we will keep you updated as soon as there are any further developments.
