For anyone considering buying a property in Cumbria, there’s never been a better time. Inevitably there were some challenges last year, because when stock levels fall there is a tendency for some estate agents to over-inflate property prices. Sellers also feel that lack of supply will lead to more demand and hence prices will rise. What we saw in reality was purchasers becoming increasingly savvy and really researching property prices – and as a result only offering what they felt was realistic. The challenge was therefore convincing people that correct pricing was the way forward, something I feel we achieved, as this resulted in our great completion statistics.
