National figures from HMRC show that property sales in the UK rose across the UK by 14% during 2014*, but how does that compare to the picture locally?

Farnborough Area Focus

Steve Panther Assistant Manager Estate Agent Farnborough“Residential Sales numbers, not inclusive of any new build, increased in Farnborough by approximately 26% when you compare 2013 and 2014.

“Farnborough’s property market has changed over the last year, transaction levels increasing far beyond the national figure. I’d put this down to continued high demand for accommodation in Farnborough from both local people staying in the area and people being drawn in by the growing business and ‘Blue Chip’ presence, the town’s regeneration and more movers being priced out of London areas and appreciating the ease of commute into The City from Farnborough.”

Steve Panther, Assistant Branch Manager Farnborough stevep@mackenziesmith.co.uk

Farnborough (GU14) area has also enjoyed incredibly strong growth in value across all property types** as the area continues to evolve as a business hub, regenerated community and commuter town:

  • Detached houses up 17% in value
  • Semi detached homes up 15% in value
  • Terraced property up 18% in value
  • Apartments and Maisonettes up 18% in value
