Although East Anglia has seen some of the highest price rises over the last year, Norfolk in particular still looks comparatively good value. Like all things we have to look at what is affordable, along with value for money.
When it comes to what is affordable, as a country, all property values are out of kilter with salaries and this is why we are seeing so many big companies who need a large catchment of staff, moving into more affordable areas. This has very much put Norfolk on the radar. Now, with talk of better communication, be that road, rail or Broadband, I can only see this driving more people to the area, which in turn will drive up prices, unless considerably more houses are built.
In regard to value for money, this is where Norfolk steals the march on every other county. You’re buying into a quality of life. The people are friendly, the landscape is breath-taking, steeped in history and heritage but is moving fast with technologies. So yes, property is expensive, but I can’t think of anywhere else I would want to live.
"Dear Natasha, Just a note to say many thanks for all your hard work in the sale of our home. Darryl and I are very grateful. It has been an absolute pleasure dealing with you. You kept us well informed to the end, and I believe that you felt the turmoil with us which was oddly comforting. We sincerely appreciated your approachable, practical and friendly manner throughout. The new owners invited us to meet them yesterday evening and they are really very happy. Such a good way to finish this chapter! We wish you every success in your future and be assured that we will highly recommend your services. Warm regards, Anita "
