Moving to the Cotswolds!

Searching for your dream home is exciting but it can also be time consuming and stressful, especially when combining it with a move to a new area, choosing the right schools and navigating the once or twice weekly commute.

The ‘race for space’ which has been driving the property market since it reopened after the first lockdown in 2020 has shown a few signs of slowing down recently, however The Cotswolds in particular has seen the biggest increase in demand from buyers and renters wanting a slice of fresh air and open space in which to spend their time, and this doesn’t look like its going to change anytime soon!

The Cotswolds has always benefitted from good road and rail connections as it is no more than 2hrs from central London. There are a number of mainline stations dotted throughout the Cotswolds which offer great connectivity into London when needed.

Combined with investment in faster broadband speeds, an excellent choice of schools, stylish shopping, a thriving café culture and superb country pubs, and picturesque countryside makes it a huge draw for many people.

The intensity of the demand for property over the last two years has led to very low stock levels resulting in many homes being snapped up in less than a week, or even within a day or two of launching to the market, and many selling and renting before hitting the market at all. That’s when working with a property finder can be invaluable.

Finding and acquiring prime property in any area can be extremely competitive and very time-consuming, but property finders are usually at the top of the list to be notified when new properties are coming onto the market, which means they often have access to properties that you wouldn’t normally find.

Property finders also have a wealth of local expertise. They live and breathe their local area so they can advise on a whole range of things you might never have even thought of.
