As we approach the end of a wild and crazy start to the 2020s, one of the better things to have come out of the post-pandemic period is the sudden urge for people looking for houses for sale in north west Cheshire, with the desire to move their living requirements to the more rural areas.
Interest in All Areas
With demand being high and supply struggling to keep up with the insane interest for spacious living within the area, estate agents Stockport have seen huge increases in new buyers to the market, people looking to upsize or buy a second home and an unexpected surge in people further down south looking to relocate into the area.
This has led to record numbers of interest on every single house on the market, with upwards of 10 or more buyers in line for each property. Whilst this has led to 9 in every 10 not buying their intended property, it has been extremely beneficial to those taking initial steps into how to sell a house.
Access to Better Living
Initially, the drive for more space drove the increase in attention for the area, with people during the pandemic wanting greener pastures and the drive to escape crowded city living. This was also driven by the dramatic increase in home working due to the pandemic, with many families choosing to upsize their home to one that accommodates the family all being at home throughout the day.
The ability to have a home office, home schooling area and a place to hold virtual meetings necessitated a move where everyone could function properly and the allowing of outside exercise called for areas with country walks and parks that social distancing could provide a safe environment. This became majorly attractive to families in city areas such as London or Birmingham that desired something much different.
Enter the New Faces
With the stamp duty holiday in effect and the addition of the low mortgage scheme, the doors were wide open for first-time buyers to join the hunt for rural area housing in Stockport. This saw record numbers in housing interest that broke records month on month but constituted a dramatic increase of numbers for properties.
