Prime properties of North Yorkshire

Our York office has a boutique and niche feel, and we cover the upper end of the residential market in North Yorkshire, selling some of the finest property in the region. Our mission is to deliver optimum service and results for vendors and buyers alike by combining cutting edge marketing strategies with our knowledge of the market and our personable skills. The type of property we sell befits the Sotheby’s International Realty brand thus making our connected business perfect partners to work with each other.

York is seen as a property “hot spot” in the north of England. The city centre is abundant with wonderful architecture as well as cutting edge modern development and a vibrant lifestyle, making it a go-to destination. Connectivity to London is wonderful with direct trains taking less than 2 hours to travel between the two places which has resulted in the last year many people relocating from London to York simply for a better life work balance. From York, the journey takes 40 minutes to reach the North York Moors National Park or The Yorkshire Dales and in 1 hour you are at the coast.

York has also seen strong capital growth year-on-year and now is one of the most prime destinations to live in the north. It is also a very popular tourist destination so those looking to invest and generate income through holiday lets are doing so.

London Update | Dollar and RMB buyers driving investment to London

Lillie Square, Earls Court – from £835,000

The Summer season is upon us, and whilst London has many visitors from around the globe visiting the numerous attractions London has to offer, it is also well known that these visitors often combine their trips with the possibility of investment into real estate. Throughout the course of the year we have been reporting that Dollar and RMB buyers have been the driving factor behind investment into London and this continues to be the case in the main. However, we have seen interest increasing in the Super Prime levels, with more registered buyers with £20m+ looking for good homes for their families. The unrest and current situation in Hong Kong, has also seen a spike in the number of enquiries coming through for both “end users” and investors, the contributing factor being that London is viewed as a safe haven for investment in property in the longer term. The infrastructure of London’s legal and financial districts coupled with the leading city for education in the world offers investors comfort in acquiring property on a buy-to-let basis, with future capital growth potential.
