SOLD FOR £60,000 ABOVE THE GUIDE PRICE
BUNGALOWS IN HALE/HALE BARNS IN HIGH DEMAND
Thornley Groves Estate Agents, Hale Office, recently handled the sale of a detached bungalow on High Elm Road in Hale Barns and generated so much activity that a sale was agreed at £60k more than the guide price… Much to the delight of the owners of the property!
There has been a marked increase in the last 12 months in the numbers of buyers who are approaching retirement age and are looking to downsize from substantial properties with large gardens to more manageable properties. This is largely due to improved market conditions at the higher end of the market which is giving people the confidence to part with what is probably their biggest asset… their family home.
Bungalows and apartments that have their own outside space are without doubt the most sought after properties amongst those buyers who are looking to downsize. It is easy to see why Hale Barns is a popular choice due to a higher concentration of bungalows than there are in neighbouring areas and the new Square at Hale Barns will provide a number of high quality shops and restaurants that residents can enjoy.
If you are thinking of downsizing and would like to discuss your buying requirements in fine detail, contact the Hale office on 0161 941 4111 and one of our sales consultants will talk to you about your buying criteria. Similarly, if you own a bungalow and are thinking of moving in the near future, now could be the time to market the property and take advantage of the very clear demand for bungalows in the Hale/Hale Barns area.
