Houses on the commuter lines

February proved to be another exceptional month with signs that the spring market will be even more competitive as the number of purchasers registered continues to out strip new instructions by 10 to 1. The change in working habits has meant a change in lifestyle for thousands of people with many now able to work from home most if not all of the time. Occasional visits to London via one of our many local train stations makes country living even more attractive with the vast majority of our sales situated within 30 minutes of a train station whilst improvements in the local broadband infrastructure means the vast majority of people can function perfectly from home.

The benefits of moving to the country aren’t just financial, whilst we undoubtedly offer value for money for those moving from within the M25 East Anglia offers so much more with wonderful countryside walks, historic towns and villages and many outstanding schools.

With warmer and longer spring days approaching the early signs suggest there will be a lot more available properties coming onto the market over the coming weeks. If you are looking to move or purchase a property in our area contact your local David Burr office to discuss your requirements.
