Preston’s housing market is prime real estate for sellers as Zoopla finds a huge spike in buyer demand.
According to nationwide online estate agents, Zoopla, there was a 59% increase in sales leads for Preston homeowners over the last 12 months.
Emma Roberts, managing director of an estate agency business in Preston told mortgageintroducer.com, “Preston is growing in popularity.
“The market is healthy here as whether you’re a family looking to be near good schools, which Preston has an abundance of, or you’re a first-time buyer on the hunt for a destination with great job opportunities, the city really does have it all.
“Our clients vary hugely which is a key part of keeping the market healthy and active.
“Preston city centre has seen a major influx of investment in the last two to three years, the centre has become more accessible to pedestrians and a number of new shops have opened too.
“This is creating an attractive community vibe which home hunters find attractive.”
To encourage young or first-time buyers, Preston City Council are offering a number of schemes including Shared Ownership, Discounted Market Value and Help to Buy schemes.
