GEMS SET TO BUCK THE 2011 SLIDING HOUSE PRICE TREND

While lending restrictions and economic uncertainty will result in a depressed market with slight house price falls across most of the UK in 2011, several perennially popular Wiltshire towns will buck the trend, County Homesearch can reveal.

While lending restrictions and economic uncertainty will result in a depressed market with slight house price falls across most of the UK in 2011, several perennially popular Wiltshire towns will buck the trend, County Homesearch can reveal.


Scenic market towns with good transport links will be buoyed by continuing demand, and quality properties will remain sought after. Nowhere is completely immune to the possibility of house price falls; however Marlborough, Malmesbury, Hungerford and The Cotswolds are permanent favourites and are likely to weather the property price storm.


Richard Waters, County Homesearch Director, Bath and Bristol, comments:


Marlborough


Marlborough is one of the most popular towns in Wiltshire and property prices here are very unlikely to fall. The town has great schools and London can be reached within an hour. There is a variety of houses in Marlborough, from picturesque cottages to substantial family homes and the surrounding villages are also very pretty.


Malmesbury


Malmesbury is the classic unspoilt market town and will therefore retain its popularity with homebuyers causing house prices to be buoyed. The towns old school charm will ensure the top quality properties continue to sell well.


Hungerford


Picturesque Hungerford is popular with people moving out of London and its high street full of locally owned boutiques rather than chain stores is one of its most attractive features. It has good transport links, being connected to Swindon, Reading and London by the M4.


Nic Mills, Director, County Homesearch Cotswolds and Hereford, comments:


The Cotswolds


The Cotswolds will remain popular because it is an area of outstanding natural beauty, which also has the convenience of easy access tomajor cities. Surprisingly, though world renowned for the quintessential hue of the Cotswold stone, the area also boaststhe latest in'state of the art' architecture. These properties have serious resonance with those who wish to live in ruralEnglandyetnot forego the comforts of todays design and technology. The variety of properties available along with the natural beauty of the Cotswolds will ensure prices do not fall.
