Winkworth Reports Brighton Market Buoyant on Back of London Buyers
London, United Kingdom (16th August, 2012) – M Winkworth plc, the largest single
estate agency brand in London, comments on the buoyancy of the Brighton residential
property market since the Jubilee weekend in June this year.
Winkworth’s Brighton & Hove office have reported a considerable increase in the number
of buyers investing in a second home in the Brighton area in the last month, with
approximately 60% of completed sales in this period being to buyers seeking secondary
In December 2011 and January 2012, 0% of sales made from Winkworth Brighton &
Hove were from London-based buyers, and in February, this increased swiftly to 50%. In
March 2012, 100% of sales were to Londoners, and Winkworth Brighton & Hove reports
that this trend appears to be continuing.
Emma Bailey, manager of Winkworth Brighton & Hove, commented: “We have received
countless offers on Brighton apartments over the last few weeks, with many clients
putting in offers over the asking price to firmly secure the deal. The demand for peaceful
holiday homes on the Brighton coastline remains extremely strong.”
Mansion flats within the £350,000 to £900,000 price range are reported to be the most
in-demand properties, with many London-based purchasers paying in cash. An exemplar
property on the popular Kingsway sea-front was marketed by Winkworth for one week
before receiving three offers at the asking price.
