Langley in Berkshire named top UK area for homebuyers

Berkshire

It comes in at sixth place in the overall most available areas list, with 31.5% of properties on Rightmove already marked as sold subject to contract

Langley in Berkshire has been named one of the best areas in the UK for people looking to buy a house.

A property survey by Rightmove.com has revealed the areas of the country that are best for buyers because they have the highest proportion of properties for sale.

Rightmove say they have received a record number of online property viewings during the Covid-19 lockdowns over the last 12 months.

Many people have been scrolling furiously for their dream home, with sales showing a notable rise as measures have been eased.

There is an expectation of a gradual return to more normal working life as pandemic-induced restrictions look set to continue to reduce this summer.

However, Rightmove have noted buyers are increasingly more demanding when it comes to space included in their properties, as they move away from city centres and into the suburbs.

Rightmove property expert Tim Bannister said: Suburbs are faring well as some people move out from the centre of cities. Both sale and rental properties in city centres have been suffering over the past year as the usual appeal to live there has temporarily been taken away.

That push for more space to enjoy means Langley’s popularity could surge in the house buying market.

It comes in at sixth place in the overall most available areas list, with 31.5% of properties on Rightmove already marked as sold subject to contract (SSTC).

The average house price in the village is one of the highest on the top ten list at £440,846.

Others on the list include Bushey in Hertfordshire, which reached an average price of £564,683 at the start of 2021.
