Dorset’s Most Wanted
Grant Brooks – MD Edwards Estate Agents
Following on from last our ‘Has the Dorset property Market Peaked’ article last most, which concluded that From both our own local experience and that reported by the UK Land Registry and the property portal Rightmove nationally, the answer, despite the gloomy predictions of the media, is no, not yet anyway.
The local property market is a common talking point, it’s an often hotly debated after-dinner conversation for many people. It’s a very British thing to discuss how much your home is worth and looking to see what neighbouring homes are selling for. Even those not necessarily looking to buy or sell in the near future.
With the continued sombre media speculation on the current state of the UK property market, I’m increasingly asked what types of properties are selling well and what is likely to attract high buyer demand?
This is not an easy question, as almost any property can fit into the bracket, price is often the key and setting the price as high as possible doesn’t always achieve the best results. Below are some examples of properties that we’ve recently sold, that have attracted high buyer demand.
The Outlook, Spetisbury – Price £550,000
Sale agreed within 2 weeks of marketing – In excess of asking price.
Westfield Close, Wimborne – Price £950,000

Manor Road, Verwood – Price £425,000
On Market 48Hrs, 8 Viewings, 3 Offers, Sale agreed at asking price.
Fernlea Avenue, Ferndown – Price £895,000
Sale agreed at full asking price on the first viewing.
