Property market still going strong

Michael Stevens Estates in Loughton is finding the local property market as buoyant as ever. According to Ben Reynolds, senior negotiator at the Loughton agents explains despite the new stamp duty changes that came into effect on the April 1 for investors and second home purchasers, they still seem to be looking to acquire properties. ‘Both parties are still on the hunt for properties as so long as they feel the property will achieve a good yield and capital growth.’

‘First time buyers are even more prominent, especially with the new government Help To Buy ISA scheme, which is enabling to build up a healthier deposit to get on to the property ladder.’

He continues: ‘The lettings market is strong – with professional tenants looking to rent properties ranging from one bedroom flats to five bedroom houses set close to Loughton High Road or a Central Line Station.’
