The government’s campaign to #keepthecountrymoving appears to have been a success. Whether the current levels of activity can be attributed to the season, the weather, the recent announcements on stamp duty, a desire to move having been forced to stay put for so long, or a combination of all these factors, the end result is that the country appears to be on the move. Agents across the country are reporting exceptionally high levels of activity in sales and rentals.
Much of the interest is from families currently living in London. Hampshire has always been a desirable county with its proximity to London and the south coast combined with glorious open countryside, idyllic villages, numerous market towns and historic cities. A recent article in The Guardian listed Petersfield, a central Hampshire market town, as one of the top 10 hotspots to escape the city to, highlighting the fact that the commuting time by train to London Waterloo is just 3 minutes over the magic one hour mark, making it a commuter town with all the benefits of rural life.
