Over the last 2-3 years we have seen the normal trend in a recovering market. The improvement started at the lower end has since spread upwards, reaching the upper end in 2014.

At the highest level, however, there are substantial variations. On the one hand are modernized, well-protected houses that are selling at good prices. But houses that need substantial work or need completely redoing, or which have weather-related exposures which are better understood with all the publicity given to flood insurance in the last few years, are selling at what can appear to be bargain levels.

Truly at the top end, buyers need to be aware of what they are getting – and they seem to be.
