Newport, Cardiff, Bristol and London

What will 2018 bring? Newport, Cardiff, Bristol and beyond.

After an outstanding 2017 including our most successful month on record, 2018 promises more of the same. The regeneration of the city centre combined with a welcome influx of commuters from Cardiff and Bristol means that prices are very much on the up.

Although larger scale economic uncertainties may be causing prices to stall in other parts of Britain, Newport’s unique location between the surging economies of Cardiff and Bristol has resulted in an almost unprecedented demand for properties with a large proportion selling at, or even above asking prices. While the west side of Newport has seen price increases for a number of years, since the announcement that the tolls on the Severn Bridge are to be scrapped, prices on the east side are rapidly catching up.

Other trends suggest that larger period properties which for some time struggled to find buyers are now greatly in demand, particularly from commuters from more expensive areas. New build developments on the west side are as usual performing incredibly well but now east side developments along the river and around Llanwern are also in great demand. Prices close to the city centre have been depressed for some time but with the rejuvenation of the city centre and an increase in commuters more used to city centre living, demand is very much on the up. It is now the case that every area and every property type is to some extent in really good demand.

Apartments have been the only sector that hasn’t seen a huge price increase recently, mainly due to the large volume of new builds built along the river front, however with that now subsiding, 2018 should see flats finally start to really pick up in value again.

What never changes is that the presentation of your property will make a huge difference to its value. Even a dated property can benefit from a slight touch up here and there. But be careful, it is just as easy to spend too much as to not spend enough. Please don’t hesitate to ask for advice from a family business with over 50 years of experience in the area.

What Our Clients Say

A Few Words From Our Valued Clients

Dr Stuart T

We have moved house twice in the last 18 months. After initially buying a house that was being sold through Crook and Blight, we were so impressed by their service that for our next move we decided to put the sale of our house in their hands. The whole team was excellent. Richard Crook himself was very attentive when preparing the sale details and photographs of the house. The house was promptly advertised and a sale secured within a matter of weeks. The house we subsequently bought was also through Crook and Blight and we were kept closely informed of the progress of both our sale and purchase by Jane in the sales department. Whenever we phoned the office we were put through to the right person who was able to deal with our enquiry. We would certainly use them again.

Kevin B

Crook and Blight acted for the seller when we bought our house. When, years later, we came to sell that house, his firm were the natural choice for us. They were always optimistic of a successful outcome, even when we had doubts. They arranged a far higher number of viewers than we had thought possible, in the process securing a number of offers. Richard and Jane were very supportive during the conveyancing process, making calls up and down the chain when necessary to keep it all moving along to completion and feeding back promptly. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them and when, in years to come, we want to sell our new house I’m sure Crook & Blight will be high on our list of potential estate agents. best wishes to all the team. Thank you.

Gwynn L

We have recently sold a property through Crook & Blight and from start to finish their professionalism was unquestionable. All members of staff, as well as always being pleasant and caring, went beyond expectations and couldn’t do enough to ensure a stress-free move. We were part of a long and difficult chain and we believe that without the endeavours of the team our sale would not have gone through. Jane Fisher was our Progress Manager and we we genuinly believe that without her years of experience and the amount of time she spent on our case the sale would never have been completed. We thoroughly recommend Crook & Blight to anyone thinking of buying or selling in the area. You certainly get what you pay for. Good luck to the team in the future. Thanks again.
