Chester Property Update

Last month, we saw the number of new instructions in Chester decreased slightly since the same period last year, with 286 new instructions in October 2019, compared to 306 in 2018. There were a total of 3055 new instructions year to date.

The number of sales agreed stayed almost exactly the same since the same period in 2018, with 212 sales agreed this year compared to 213 last year. This tells us that while there are fewer properties going onto the market, the number of properties actually selling has remained consistent.

The average property value in Chester has risen to £266,151, which is a 0.57% increase from the same period in 2018.

All of this is great news for sellers in the Chester area, as it means that supply is getting lower, but demand is staying the same, giving you the opportunity to have a quick and profitable sales process. Our team are always on hand to help make sure that selling your home is as simple and effective a process as possible, and to ensure you get great value from your property no matter what the market conditions are.
