Reasons to be cheerful The high profile success of the Queen’s Jubilee, a British male winning a tennis major for the first time in most of our lifetimes, another Brit leaving the world’s best cyclists in his wake as he won the Tour de France, the English football team at the European Championships (maybe not!), the astonishing comeback in the Ryder Cup and of course last and certainly not least, the sensational Olympic and Paralympic Games, has made it a year to remember. But how did the Essex property market react? Well the answer appears to be surprisingly well!
It’s probably first-time buyers that benefit most though. There are incentives from builders, low interest rate mortgages but most attractive of all is the Government backed ‘Easy Buy’ scheme where you own 100% of the property but only pay a percentage of the price now. EASY BUY EXAMPLE 1 bedroom apartment in Brentwood currently on the market for £172,500 can be bought using Easy Buy
During the period of the Olympics for example, we actually found that the number of people out viewing properties was 10% higher compared to the same period last year.
for just £129,375*
Even more noticeable was the strong demand for new homes over the summer. From June to September, the time when we were told the only people on the streets would be going to, or coming back from, these events, sales were agreed on over £22m worth of brand new homes in Essex which were being marketed through Beresfords.
*Terms and conditions apply
The appeal of buying new is easy to understand. In today’s tough times they are easy to maintain, economic to run and have ever improving green credentials. Add in the incentives often available and it’s easy to see why they are often the property of choice for buy-to let investors. And for those selling a property, developers often offer partexchange meaning you can move in quickly with no stress or hassle.

We have had a lot to cheer about this year and for once, Britain has been talked about across the world for all the right reasons. To cap it all, the Olympics has delivered its final medal. Recent figures from the Office of National Statistics shows high ticket sales have helped the UK exit recession with much better than expected growth. Although the tough economic climate is still with us, it really does seem that Essex is faring far better than most, with the ‘pull’ of London and significant inward investment in terms of major capital projects playing their part. As one famous Essex boy once said in song, ’Reasons to be cheerful’!
