Taunton hits the house price hotspot of 2021

- Wed 05 Jan 2022

As we have seen with many things, the pandemic has had a huge impact on the way we now live our lives and therefore where we choose to live. We have seen many people move from large cities for homes with more space and better value, which the South West has an abundance of places to choose from, making it a more popular place than ever since the pandemic started.

In case you haven’t already heard, there is great news for Taunton homeowners with the town being named as the house price hotspot of 2021. According to Halifax, the average values rising 21.8% this year, which is three times the UK average of 6.2% with prices in Somerset having increased by £56,546 to £315,759 in a year.

Taunton has many benefits and doesn’t come as a surprise as to why it is number one running in the house price hotspot of 2021. Taunton’s high quality of life and great transport links to major towns and cities across the South West and beyond both add to the reason of it having the biggest house price growth in the last year.

Ben Stevens, Manager of our Bradleys Taunton Branch commented “It’s a positive message for all homeowners in Taunton and the surrounding area and having witnessed the huge wave of demand from buyers over the last 12 months, simply doesn’t surprise me. The demand has continued and we are actually experiencing more demand now than this time last January and so I can see the house price rises aren’t stopping just yet!
