Historically, Suffolk attracted house-hunters with existing family ties, but in the last few years word has spread as buyers have looked to relocate to East Anglia from more urbanised and expensive areas. The combination of greater work from home flexibility, relative value for money, with good transport links plus commutability to Cambridge and other popular East Anglian towns has attracted buyers looking to improve their quality of life. Property is in great demand from a wide demographic range of buyers from first time buyers to families and professionals and retirees alike.
There also seems to be a trend emerging of people starting to move further east, as people who cannot afford to buy in Cambridge look to Bury St Edmunds, and those who cannot afford Bury St Edmunds are buying in Stowmarket or Ipswich. So desirable areas continually shift and evolve depending on budgets and availability.
In addition, we have found that traditional spring and autumn selling seasons are less defined than they once were, and we believe it is just as good a time to sell a property during a cold January as it is on a warm summer’s day in July.
