Current Statistics ►


The 22nd September signals the beginning of autumn; as the weather starts to chill and the landscape takes on a rustic hue, many homebuyers are still actively searching for properties, looking to move into their new homes before Christmas. In 2016, a total of 28% of all property sales occurred during the autumn months.

Of all the seasons, it seems that autumn proves the most lucrative when it comes to property names. Homes bought this year which have included "autumn" in their name, have sold for more than double those which included the word "summer".

There have been four "autumn" houses sold so far this year, the most expensive selling for almost £3 million in Taplow, near Maidenhead. It’s counterpart in Rawdon, West Yorkshire sold for well over half a million. Meanwhile, seven Autumn Cottages have also been bought this year, ranging from £163,500 in Norfolk to £640,000 in Tring, Buckinghamshire.


Thinking of buying a New Home?

There are many pros to buying a new home, from builder's guarantees and certificates to ease of maintenance and improved energy efficiency. New homes must comply with current building regulations and during construction are regularly inspected before receiving the completion certificate. The use of modern materials should reduce the need for expensive renovations, repairs and DIY. Most new homes benefit from a "build mark" structural warranty which provides peace of mind from major structural defects for ten years. 

New homes are built to make use of all the living space and designed to suit modern, everyday living. New homes are sold with the added benefit of no onward chain which eliminates some of the stress with the buying and selling process.
