Graph Of The Week: Winners & Losers In 2009

January 4, 2010 at 5:35 PM 2 comments

January 4th already?! Yikes, where does the time go?

To mark the passing of the year, we thought it would be interesting to take a look at the property market’s winners and losers in 2009.

And this being January, we’re serving up two graphs for the price of one … the regional risers and fallers and the best and worst of ten major cities.

The most obvious trend in the data is the stark North/South divide: London and the South East did best at regional level; and coastal powerhouses Brighton and Southampton did best at city level.

And the worst city and region? Sorry, homeowners in Greater Manchester and Scotland (but rejoice first-time buyers!), prices dipped by 10.1 per cent and 12.2 per cent respectively.

    Interesting stats. The last year has not been been particularly easy. Having said that we find that owners of property in Moraira are for the most part realistic about the prices they can expect to achieve. The fall in prices means that properties are now more affordable than we have seen for a considerable time. Some purchasers are recognising this and providing us with improved sales opportunities.

    Check what the property looks like in off season. Make sure you have already spent some time not just in summer but also during winter, so you know the place from both sides of the coin.

    • Rent various flats and apartments before you decide on purchasing a property to watch out for intensity of noise and sounds both during day and night; and look out into the day and night traffic to see what the transport vehicles are like.
