London Buyers drive the Hertfordshire market.

The Hertfordshire market has always been hugely influenced by the flow of buyers moving out of London to the relative peace, quiet and undoubted beauty of Hertfordshire. In fact I am a direct example of this trend as my parents moved our family from North London to Little Berkhamsted in 1973 and many of their friends did likewise. It is fair to say that the housing market in Hertfordshire has always been supported by the warm flow of people and their salaries heading up the excellent railway lines from London every evening. What this means for sellers is that you have to have your toes – indeed both feet – firmly dipped in this warm water. This is where the internet has really come into its own. Rightmove figures show the biggest surge in visits to their web site is from 8.30am when professionals log in to their office computers to see what new properties have come on the market. No surprise that London buyers make up the biggest proportion of visits to our web site, potential buyers on our database and buyers for our clients’ homes. Indeed the London market is clearly taking off again – we sold a house in Walthamstow of all places in a couple of days last week – and the trend for people to want to move out to Hertfordshire if anything is growing. So if you want to reach the London market, but don’t want to pay through the nose for the privilege, take a look at the beautiful presentation we give our clients properties and our very competitive fees ( both on http://www.bigblackhen.com) then call for a free valuation!
