The village property market in North Hertfordshire

The village property market in North Hertfordshire

We are delighted to see that the Hertfordshire housing market continues to thrive as we go through 2022. People are entrusting their homes to local estate agents with the desire to sell and buy throughout Hertfordshire. And the beautiful villages that are scattered throughout the county are proving to be incredibly popular.

The villages in North Hertfordshire are certainly a strong draw for people looking for value for money, a semi-rural location along with the easy access to local Towns and a short commute into London.

Preston village properties

Preston village is a prime example of having the best of both worlds. Preston is a small village surrounded by the beautiful and tranquil Hertfordshire countryside yet is only three miles from Hitchin and just a 30-mile commute to London.

As a local estate agent, we have purchasers that see a move to Preston village as a hugely beneficial alternative than moving to local larger towns such as Hitchin or Letchworth Garden City. They know that village residents have all the benefits of being able to enjoy the open countryside, alongside the easy access all the local amenities they need.

We are pro-active local estate agent in Preston and understand that the Preston property market is significantly smaller than Hitchin. However, this understanding and experience of the market means we know how to engage with the right buyers.

Breachwood Green properties

Breachwood Green is another example of being able to have an idyllic village environment for home life, blended with an easy commute to the larger surrounding towns and cities for work.

We have recently sold a wonderful detached 4-bedroom house that offered a beautifully presented property with modern, open plan living.

Our approach, which accurately targeted potential purchasers, lead to our vendors receiving multiple viewings and offers, progressing to a best and final offer scenario. We were delighted to say that the house eventually sold for over the guide price.

The popularity of Hertfordshire villages doesn’t stop with Breachwood Green and Preston. We have seen increased interest from purchasers looking for the North Herts lifestyle in villages such as:

  • Ickleford
  • St Ippolyts
  • Whitwell
  • Kimpton
  • Preston

The driving force for many making the move to these village locations is the desire and belief that they will offer improved value for money, therefore a larger property, than purchasing within the highly popular town centres.

Our experience across the North Hertfordshire region means that we can help our clients with a wider range of options for the village life they seek.

For example, we have also helped our clients view and sell properties in a wide variety of other villages, all offering the same benefits as the likes of Preston and St Ippolyts, but they may not have considered before. These include properties in:

  • Langley
  • Great Offley
  • Little Wymondley
  • Great Wymondly
  • Graveley
  • Ashwell

We strongly believe that our experience and local knowledge play an important role in helping our clients discover their ideal village property. We have worked throughout the North Hertfordshire region for many years and have built up a detailed understanding of the local villages, so we can pass this expertise on to our purchasers and vendors.

So, no matter if you’re seeking a local estate agent to sell your property, or looking to buy your new home, we are on hand to help and support you through the process.
